RECARO Aircraft Seating celebrated 10 years of success at its facility in Qingdao, China. A celebration unfolded, complete with a vibrant dragon and lion dance performance, symbolizing strength and good fortune. The event also featured the planting of a Golden Osmanthus tree, a powerful representation of the enduring values and legacy of RECARO. In parallel with the 10-year anniversary, the third and final phase of the space2grow expansion plan was also successfully completed in October. The company had acquired nearly 11,000 square meters of land in 2019 to maximize the usage of workshops and office spaces at the site. Construction of the new facilities took approximately 12 months.

 Dr. Mark Hiller, CEO of RECARO Aircraft Seating and RECARO Holding, commented: "Reaching the 10-year milestone is an exciting accomplishment, not just for the Asia Pacific region but for overall RECARO. 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, said: "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."

The RECARO Aircraft Seating facility in Qingdao, which first opened its doors in 2013, was the first international aircraft seat manufacturer to establish production facilities in China. Today, the facility employs a dedicated workforce of 160. RECARO Aircraft Seating continues to maintain its global presence with facilities in Germany, China, the United States, and Poland.
