Acro seating products are to be showcased in a newly created facility within the prestigious new COMAC Customer Selection Centre in Pudong, Shanghai.

The development introduces Acro as a potential supplier for COMAC, (The Commercial Aircraft Corporation of China), the Chinese state-owned aviation manufacturer established in 2008.

COMAC’s vast new Selection Centre is the largest of its kind in Asia, establishing an innovative concept which provides customers with an optimal selection process via massive technologically-equipped exhibition halls for the display, technical exchange and evaluation of whole aircraft configurations.

Acro will harness the opportunity to showcase its product range there, rolling out established product successes such as the Series 6 Recline which is currently demonstrating its robust good looks and extensive comfort attributes in-service with Qingdao Airlines, and unveiling the new Acro S6HGA seat, designed specifically to meet the demands and aspirations of Chinese airlines.

- Announcing the company’s imminent arrival at COMAC, Neil Cairns, CEO of UK-based Acro, said

“This move will dramatically increase exposure for our products within the world’s fastest-growing marketplace, increasing our business opportunities by creating more choices for COMAC’s customers.

Effective, mutually beneficial partnerships with customers and suppliers, underpinned by exceptional creative collaboration, are the very heart of our business and this latest collaboration is an outstanding example of that ethos in action. When we unveil our presence at COMAC in the next few weeks, we will open a whole new chapter of business growth.”

Perfectly positioned to help drive that growth is the ground-breaking Series 6HGA Economy Class, designed by Acro with Chinese airlines very much in mind, combining chic contemporary styling and exceptional passenger comfort with robust engineering and reduced part counts for outstanding lifetime value. The elegantly sleek lightweight seatback design offers versatility with either fixed back or recline as optional configurations, each unlocking up to 2” extra room at knee level.

Acro International Sales Manager, Paula Liu Hong, based in China, looks forward to presenting the Series 6HGA to potential customers.

“Launching our presence at COMAC with an outstanding product specifically designed for this marketplace demonstrates our commitment to the region and really shows that we mean business.

The new facility provides potential customers with the opportunity to see and inspect our seating for themselves and we are confident that they will be impressed not only by our extensive range but also by our unique capacity to adapt and customize to suit the specific requirements of individual airlines.”

Also featured in the stunning COMAC exhibition halls will be the Series 7 Domestic Business Class, Acro’s luxurious premium seat for narrowbody aircraft, and its next generation Series 6 Economy Class options in Recline or Fixed Back for short to medium haul, both featuring Acro’s distinctive signature curved seatback providing 2” more legroom.

- Mr. Henry Chen, Chairman of Tiancheng Controls said

“We welcome the invitation to join forces with COMAC with a presence in its Customer Selection Centre.

We are enormously proud of this cooperation and are delighted to have such an exciting new ‘home’ in Shanghai.  We look forward to developing still further our partnership with COMAC whose high standards and ambitions are driving such positive change within global aviation.”
