Ipeco announces second Southend Airport Business Park facility

Last updated on

Ipeco Holdings Limited is pleased to announce expansion plans to build a second state-of-the-art facility on the new Airport Business Park. The expansion comes less than two years after the company moved into its first 130,000 sq ft purpose-built unit on the site. The 140,000 sq ft facility is due for completion in 2024.

Ipeco is the world’s leading aircraft crew seating manufacturer with customers such as Boeing, Airbus, Embraer, Textron, Bombardier, and Gulfstream. The Company also holds a significant market share in supplying executive jet cabin seating and a growing supplier of aircraft galley inserts to many of the world’s top airlines.

The company employs nearly 800 staff of which approximately 600 are based on the Ipeco campus in Southend on Sea, comprising four buildings in Aviation Way and one on Airport Business Park. The latest facility will allow Ipeco to amalgamate its extensive manufacturing operations further to generate more efficiencies.

Ipeco has called London Southend Airport its home since 1960 and this investment demonstrates a strong belief in its continuing success and long-term future as a contributor to both the industry it serves and to the local community in Essex.
