Along with FERCHAU AVIATION, Rostock System Technik GmbH (RST) presents itself as a member of the FERCHAU AVIATION GROUP at the AIX. At the joint stand, new and existing customers, partners and competitors can exchange views with the specialists and HR managers of both companies.
At the beginning of this year, FERCHAU AVIATION and RST launched a cross-company operating organization under the motto “ONE Cabin” and thus created a new, flexible and powerful unit for customers, which bundles existing competences and development partners even more efficiently. "ONE Cabin" offers end-to-end solutions from a single source and covers the complete range of development services along the entire value chain.
For 2018, FERCHAU AVIATION plans to expand its international presence in addition to expanding its Cabin and Defense and Space units. In Spain alone, the company achieved growth of 30 percent last year.
