Boeing has entered into an agreement to acquire 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.
Boeing’s acquisition of EnCore Group will strengthen internal capabilities and increase innovation within its cabin vertical in order to provide greater end-to-end value to airline customers—from increased options and better products to improved capacity and availability. The acquisition includes the entire company including EnCore Interiors, EnCore International and LIFT by EnCore. Boeing previously partnered with LIFT by EnCore on the launch of its Tourist Class Seating, designed specifically to complement the Boeing 737 Sky Interior.
With approximately 700 employees, EnCore Group is headquartered in Huntington Beach, Calif., with facilities located in California and Mexico. EnCore Group has been a supplier to Boeing since its formation in 2011.
