STG Aerospace opens new subsidiary in China
STG Aerospace, a world-leading pioneer in aircraft lighting technologies, has established an official presence in China with the launch of a Wholly Foreign Owned Enterprise (WFOE), STG Aerospace (China), based in Shanghai. This new initiative is a reflection of the importance of China as a market for STG Aerospace. According to a recent IATA report, the country is expected to overtake the United States as the world’s largest air passenger market by 2030. Based in the UK, STG Aerospace also has a manufacturing facility in the US. STG’s CAAC, FAA and EASA-approved product range includes: safTglo, the pioneering and a market-leading photoluminescent emergency floor path system currently installed on over 9000 aircraft worldwide; safTsign, a leading brand of photoluminescent emergency and informational signage developed for commercial fixed-wing and rotary aircraft; and liTeMood, a plug-and-play, programmable, LED mood lighting system designed specifically to retrofit commercial aircraft cabins, both to enhance the passenger experience and improve airline metrics. The new office will enable STG Aerospace to offer an even higher level of service to their growing list of customers for safTglo and safTsign products, including China Eastern Airlines, Shenzhen Airlines and China Southern Airlines. In addition, its presence in the country will provide the company with a base for the ongoing development of cabin lighting tailored to the specific needs and tastes of the Chinese airline passenger.
