328 secures contract to manufacture galley complex for Jet Aviation
328, the Germany-based refurbishment, completions and maintenance aviation company and part of the 328 Group, has won a contract to manufacture an Airbus A340-600 rear galley complex for Jet Aviation Basel, Switzerland. The manufacture will be undertaken at 328’s Headquarters in Oberpfaffenhofen, Germany with installation to take place at Jet Aviation in Basel. The project work which began in early March is due for completion in summer 2014 for delivery to an undisclosed VVIP private customer. This will mark the company’s third galley project for Jet Aviation, reflecting their mutually strong commitment to quality, attention to detail and on time delivery. To complete the project, 328 will construct the entire ‘U’ shaped rear galley structure (which comprises two sides and a bulkhead) from raw materials including assembly and mounting attachments to a high end customised specification. Based on the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) footprint, this complex will feature high strength, lightweight materials. The electrical system and water services will be assembled and installed by 328. Surfaces will feature renowned Corian worktops and each side of the galley will come equipped with a number of appliances to include, steam ovens, microwave, refrigerators, ice draws and coffee machines.
