About Us

about us

Mirus Aircraft Seating is a lean, efficient and reactive company focussed on listening and responding to customer specific requirements.

We are based on two foundations: cutting edge, Formula One-derived, Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) simulation processes and contemporary automotive lean production and quality assurance processes. Our Design & Engineering teams have decades of experience of lightweight composite and metallic structures.

Our mission is to bring real and measured innovation into aircraft seating design and manufacturing. Matching this with contemporary automotive materials, thinking and processes for large-scale production, enables us to push the boundaries of what is possible in aircraft seating design.

We understand every customer’s requirements and challenges are different. We listen, evaluate and respond by delivering market leading, reliable, quality products on time and to budget.


Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) is commonplace in automotive and Formula One and we were keen to bring this skill to aircraft seating design. It has been essential in modelling dynamic events and developing products in a virtual realm allows huge advantages such as reducing lead-times to market and reducing risk and cost. It also means that prototypes and mock-ups can be turned around in extremely short timeframes.

By designing and introducing Finite Element Analysis we are able to bring a new dimension to the art of aircraft seating design and to simulate the exact testing conditions in order to improve and finalise our designs.


Production & Quality

We have a 60,000 PAX capacity at our state-of-the art facility in Norfolk. A high efficiency, automotive style production cell manufacturing system allows for large capacity and scalability. These lean production cells facilitate shorter lead times and can produce a fully assembled triple every 15 minutes.

Quality assurance is an essential part of the process. We operate robust supply chain control and management practices. Poka-yoke – a Japanese term meaning “mistake proofing” is a mechanism in our lean manufacturing process that helps an operator avoid mistakes by eliminating the possibility of human error in the assembly process.
