United Kingdom | April 6, 2017– STG Aerospace is delighted to announce that its saf-Tglo® SSUL (SuperSeal UltraLite) PatternMatch™ option has been selected by China Eastern Airlines for the retrofit of 125 of its Boeing 737NG aircraft, as well as becoming line-fit for its latest new aircraft deliveries from Boeing.

The first 737 aircraft will be delivered from Boeing in June 2017, and the first retrofit kits have already been dispatched to China Eastern.

saf-Tglo® is the market leading photoluminescent emergency floor path marking system, fitted to in excess of 11,000 aircraft worldwide and is the system of choice for almost every major aircraft manufacturer. Maintenance free and with no life limit, saf-Tglo® SSUL is the next-generation photoluminescent system providing the lightest, narrowest and most discrete solution of its type available.

PatternMatch™ is the first photoluminescent system to exactly match the colour and pattern of the carpet, making it virtually invisible under normal daylight conditions and the optimal choice to perfectly compliment the aircraft cabin. Only in the event of a lighting system failure does the system glow in the same way as the standard system to perform its function of illuminating the path to the exits. PatternMatch™ is available either with a standard “green” glow, or alternatively with STG Aerospace’s unique blue-glowing system.

Mr. Fang Zhaoya, the Vice President of Eastern Airlines Technic Co., Ltd. commented “It is our goal to provide the best possible cabin environment for our passengers and as soon as we saw PatternMatch™ we knew we wanted to incorporate it into our 737 cabin upgrade programme. Because we could also choose it for our new aircraft orders from Boeing, we achieved our aim of a consistent brand feel across new and existing aircraft.”

STG Aerospace Sales and Marketing Director, Marcus Williams, added “We love it when a long-term customer like China Eastern Airlines places their trust in us to support such a prestigious cabin upgrade programme, and PatternMatch™ will deliver the customer’s goal of a discrete but safe solution to emergency exit guidance. Their decision is a validation of their trust in STG Aerospace and further evidence that our product development is truly meeting Chinese customer needs.”

In 2015, STG Aerospace launched STG Aerospace (China) Co., Ltd. in Shanghai. In addition to supporting the company’s existing customers in the country, this Wholly Foreign Owned Enterprise is also working with the local aviation industry to tailor STG Aerospace products to the region’s specific requirements.

STG Aerospace has won eight consecutive Boeing Best Performance Awards since 2009.

United Kingdom | March 31, 2016– STG Aerospace, a leading aircraft cabin interior lighting specialist, is delighted to announce that it has received a Boeing Performance Excellence Award for the seventh consecutive year.

The Boeing Company issues the award annually to recognise suppliers that have achieved superior performance standards in cost, quality and delivery as well as making a significant contribution to Boeing’s ability to meet its own customers’ expectations. This year Boeing recognised 530 suppliers. A recipient of the award every year since 2010, at either Silver or Gold level, STG Aerospace is proud to be one of Boeing’s top performing worldwide partners.

Marcus Williams, Global Sales and Marketing Director at STG Aerospace, commented: “We’re extremely proud that Boeing has again recognised STG Aerospace with a Performance Excellence Award for 2015. Being recognised by Boeing for our operational strength is a testament to our high performance standards and unwavering commitment to exceed our customers’ expectations.”

STG Aerospace has been a Tier 1 supplier to Boeing since 2000, supplying its market-leading saf-Tglo® photoluminescent floor path marking system to the Boeing 737 production line. A low cost, low weight solution for emergency egress marking, saf-Tglo® requires no power source, making the system 100% reliable and eliminating the frequent operational delays and costs associated with electrical-based systems.

Most recently, STG Aerospace has been contracted to supply the latest generation of saf-Tglo®, SuperSeal UltraLite® (SSUL), for the Boeing 737 MAX. Designed to deliver higher efficiency, reliability and passenger comfort, along with lower fuel consumption, the 737 MAX made its first test flight on January 29th of this year.
