Recaro Aircraft Seating is celebrating 10 years of success in China with the completion of its space2grow expansion project.

The company acquired 11,000sqm of land in Qingdao, China in 2019 to maximize the usage of workshops and office spaces at the site. Construction of the new facilities took approximately 12 months.

To celebrate the completion of the project and the 10-year anniversary, the company held a celebration at the Qingdao facility, complete with a vibrant dragon and lion dance performance.

“Reaching the 10-year milestone is an exciting accomplishment, not just for the Asia Pacific region but for overall Recaro,” said Dr. Mark Hiller, CEO of Recaro Aircraft Seating and Recaro Holding. “The resilience of our colleagues in Qingdao, especially in recent years, is what sets Recaro apart. Our presence in Qingdao is a very important part of our strategy for the region and greatly contributes to the success of our global footprint.”

Irene Tan, general manager of Recaro Aircraft Seating in China, added, “Reaching 10 years became even sweeter when we completed our Phase Three construction project simultaneously. This gives us the space to further expand and support the future growth prospect of aviation in China, as well as the ramp-ups in the Asia Pacific region. I look forward to this new chapter with my APAC team.
