Flying Colours Corp. Asia has completed its first cabin configuration change in a Bombardier Global. This project marked the first collaboration of this type between Singapore and its sister location in St. Louis, Missouri, and was completed at the FCC facility located within the Bombardier Singapore Service Centre at Seletar Airport before redelivery to the undisclosed private customer.
The customer requested that the mid-cabin credenza be replaced by a three-place divan and divan end cabinet. The St. Louis team was tasked with the end cabinet build, which was then shipped to Singapore for varnishing and final installation. Building the cabinet required weekly status reviews between the two teams to mitigate production roadblocks and ensure design/build conformity.
“This project is a substantial step forward for Singapore’s service capability. The combination of Bombardier engineering and FCC’s manufacturing expertise will now allow full cabin reconfigurations to be offered to their in-region customers,” said Flying Colours Corp. PTE Managing Director, Paul Dunford.
To cater for the expected growth in demand for interior repairs, reconfigurations, and refurbishments in the region, Flying Colours Corp. is growing both its facility and its workforce. The company is revising the facility layout to enhance workflow and efficiently incorporate new high-tech equipment. Recruitment activity has also been doubling workforce numbers.
