STG continues to invest in Wales

The aircraft cabin lighting specialist is continuing to invest in Wales with a number of new recruits at its innovation and engineering centre in Cwmbran.

STG Aerospace is increasing its capability to meet future demand for its aircraft photoluminescent floor path marking, emergency and informational signage and LED mood lighting products.

The company has recruited a number of new members of staff, which includes a new chief operating officer and senior marketing manager, as it looks to increase its capacity.

The investment is driven by the company’s commitment to R&D at its innovation and engineering centre in Cwmbran – a part of Wales that is fast becoming a dynamic aerospace hub.

Nigel Duncan, CEO of STG, said: “Our investment in R&D and innovation has placed us at the forefront of research into the impact that lighting has on airline passengers, both physiologically and psychologically.

“It is central to our cabin lighting product development philosophy and key to the success of the company. That’s why we’re continuing to invest in the expertise of our team.”

The appointments include the recruiting of Grant Bennett as COO and Caroline Easton as senior marketing manager.

Bennett said: “With my 20 years plus management experience and lean manufacturing expertise, I am looking forward to the imminent challenge of ensuring the seamless integration of all our operational functions as the company expands and develops.”

STG Aerospace continues to lead and light the way within the retrofit and upgrade market with its cabin lighting products on a third of the world’s airlines today.

Bennett concluded: “STG Aerospace now has the right people in place in every department and I would say we have got the right team – an amazing innovative collective group to take the company forward to become a dominant world leader in aircraft cabin lighting solutions.”

STG is headquartered in Norwich but has an engineering facility in Wales and sites in Florida and Shanghai.
