Starr Aircraft doubles throughput with advanced cutting technologies


Starr Aircraft has chosen Lectra’s latest automated cutting technology and expertise to boost its production capabilities.

Starr Aircraft has manufactured aircraft products for the global commercial aviation sector for more than 30 years; its product portfolio includes interior upholstery, curtains, carpet, and fire-block fabricated goods.

“Recently, we have seen an increasing number of customers move to leather seating,” explained Tim DeWitt, director of product sales and development. “In order to meet this rise in demand, we needed a solution that would double our capacity and allow room for continued growth, all without expanding our operational hours.”

To help Starr Aircraft reach its production goals, Lectra set up a change management project to streamline and optimise the company’s leather-cutting operations using the Versalis solution.
