Full order books create new challenges

Memmingen, 2 November 2018 – ACM Aircraft Cabin Modification GmbH having to expand at the start of 2019 despite new development plans. The strong growth seen across all business areas has led to an acute lack of space. The company will now be renting an additional 3000 square metres at the former site in order to temporarily meet the necessary space requirements. However, the shortage of skilled workers remains a challenge. 

A few months ago, ACM Aircraft Cabin Modification GmbH announced its intentions to purchase a plot of land with an area of almost 15,000 square metres on the Memmingen airport grounds, with a view to using this site for the construction of a new building. As a specialist in complete cabin interiors, ACM wanted to take this step, in order to make its workflows more efficient, as this would mean that aircraft could be driven straight into the hall for conversions.

New development plans revised
“The already very positive order situation has continued to improve so much over the last few months that we are unable to wait until completion of the new building before expanding our business”, explains ACM Managing Director Roger Hohl. “Luckily, space has become available at our former site, and we are able to rent this space on a short-term basis”. The additional 3000 square metres mean that the current space requirements can be met for the time being. The new area will be divided up evenly into a production area, a high-bay warehouse and a goods delivery area. ACM’s current business expansion marks only a minor change from the new development plans at Memmingen airport, with only the building planning being modified as a result of the strong growth.

Numerous specialists required
Not only does ACM Aircraft Cabin Modification GmbH urgently require additional space, additional personnel are also needed. The company, which currently employees 120 employees at the Memmingen site, is looking to hire upholsterers, interior designers, tailors, PMO professionals, developers, designers, engineers, trainees and others within the production and office-based business areas. The majority of the employees and major suppliers are all local to the region. Therefore, ACM, with its company headquarters in Memmingen, will once again contribute to regional value creation and the strengthening of Swabia as a business location.
