In 2015, we set out on a journey to make great aircraft seats, but we always knew that we had to first create a place that was designed to foster that greatness.

Mirus is a place where talented individuals are empowered to put their very best work into our products, and ultimately into the aircraft that transport millions of people around the world every year, with little in their way. Mirus is on a mission to revolutionise the world of aircraft seating. We are young and vibrant organisation that has recruited experts from a number of industries to encourage a culture of shared knowledge, best practice and innovation. We want to do things differently. Find out a little more about our team.
