The CEO of aircraft cabin light specialist STG Aerospace says the company will look for further growth in the Americas region after winning its first customer for its saf-Taglo blu offering.
STG confirmed a contract with Boliviana de Aviación for two of Boeing 737-300 and one 737-700 aircraft.
“Having a prominent airline endorsing the product can open us up to other carriers,” Nigel Duncan, STG’s CEO told MRO-Network.com at MRO Europe in London. “There is a tendency that once a mainstream lighting application gets adopted then there becomes adoption on a wider scale.”
Duncan says developing the saf-Taglo lighting in blue was a recent move, with STG previously marketing it in the color green, due to the changing mentality of carriers.
“Airlines are very brand conscious now and some of them don’t have a preference for a green glow,” he says.
Looking to 2018, Duncan says the theme for the year will be focused around what he describes as “the totality” of lighting – where airline customers acquire all forms of lighting on an aircraft through one supplier.
