More accessible advancements.
For our team, taking ownership over our testing operations was all about speed and agility. It ensures we can get certified products to market as quickly and effectively as possible — both in terms of new product developments to advance airline performance, and in helping airlines to achieve solutions more tailored to their own operations.
The time, cost and carbon footprint that is reduced by having our M-TEST capability onsite has shifted our operation into the future — leaving the wasted resources of shipping seats around the UK or overseas for testing firmly in the past. Our facilities provide not only major benefits to our internal Mirus team, but to our customers, industry and the planet as a whole.
World-class testing with a local perspective
The dynamic test facility will provide Mirus the capacity to certify new products for airworthiness, without ever leaving the factory.
Innovation and agility
Mirus Test Services gives us the ability to dramatically reduce programme lead times, increase our technical knowledge, and strengthen our overall competence and gives the assurance and confidence to all our existing customers and OEM's that we can take on the most complex technical programs. Our in-house dynamic testing capability means greater opportunities for product advancement.
Research, development and innovation allow for weight reduction and a reduced carbon footprint for our clients. Alongside this, our on-site testing results in a dramatic reduction in shipping and travel to overseas facilities; reducing energy outputs exponentially across Mirus’ operation.
A more immediate impact.
Our promise to safely secure your data.
While our facilities are close in proximity, our unmatched confidentiality guarantees privacy both on and off site for all clients.
The M-TEST Facility is affixed to the existing Mirus Aircraft Seating building. A Paxton door lock system restricts movement of staff between the two facilities.
Solely M-TEST staff have access into the facility.
The main entrance is either through the Mirus Group reception or using the door to the front of the test facility.
All other access to the test facility must be agreed prior to visiting.
