Trenchard Aviation Group has long been providing a dry cleaning service for Air Mauritius as well as the cutting and sewing of seat covers from its base in the UK near Gatwick Airport.

Now, with its new facility on the island of Mauritius, Trenchard Aviation Group will be able to deliver a full service with a faster turnaround time and at a reduced cost. In addition, having identified many new business opportunities in the Indian Ocean region, it will be much better placed to secure further market growth.

Trenchard Aviation Group is a provider of cabin products and services including soft furnishings, carpets and dry cleaning.

With its own cut and sew facilities, the company’s expertise covers the manufacture of all types of seat covers and curtains as well as cockpit covers, fire containment sacks and other cabin bags and warning streamers. Trenchard’s experienced team of pattern makers and machinists are highly skilled in creating and developing new covers and curtains to match customer specifications and all textile materials used in manufacture are tested in the company’s on-site UKAS-approved vertical burn test chamber.

Mark Faulkner, Trenchard Aviation Group’s CEO, commented: “Trenchard Aviation Group has been providing a great service for the flag carrier airline of Mauritius for a number of years.

"With our latest facility near to Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam International Airport in Mauritius, we will not only be able to enhance that service but also make a unique offer to potential new customers.”
