Senior Plc’s new facility to ramp up capacity

PETALING JAYA: UK-based Senior Plc’s second aerospace facility at Malaysia International Aerospace Centre here would increase its manufacturing capacity by 140%, enabling the company to maintain its status as the leader in aerospace component manufacturer and systems provider.

Group CEO David Squires said the 180,000 sq ft facility would also speed up its manufacturing process by at least 40% while complementing Senior Aerospace Upeca’s existing facility in Shah Alam.

“Everything we make here are either for Boeing aircraft or Airbus aircraft and sometimes we supply it directly and sometimes supply through Spirit AeroSystems,” he said after the launch of the facility today.

The company, according to him, has so far allocated RM50mil for the second facility and expected to pump in additional investment as they move forward.

The investment, said Squires, highlighted Senior’s commitment to the long-term success of its customers, suppliers and employees in Asia. — Bernama
