Boeing has entered into an agreement to acquire the California-based EnCore Group, an aerospace interiors company that designs, certifies and produces airplane galleys and seats for airlines and also supplies products and components to Boeing.
The acquisition includes the entire company including EnCore Interiors, EnCore International and LIFT by EnCore. Boeing has previously worked with LIFT by EnCore on the launch of its Tourist Class Seating, designed specifically to complement the Boeing 737 Sky Interior.
The EnCore Group is headquartered in Huntington Beach, Calif., with facilities located in California and Mexico. The group has approximately 700 employees.
Sheila Remes, Cabin Vertical Leader and Vice President of Strategy, Boeing said, “With this acquisition, we aim to deliver quality and high-value interior offerings that our customers expect and passengers prefer. Boeing and EnCore have a history of partnering on products, and we are excited for EnCore and its employees to join the Boeing family.”
The completion of the transaction is subject to customary conditions and is expected to close by the end of the second quarter of 2019.
