Greenpoint Is Showcasing Cabinetry Craft
Greenpoint Technologies (Stand 839), a completions center for Boeing Business Jets, is showcasing cabinetry craftsmanship here at EBACE, where it is displaying cabinetry manufactured and designed for the 747‐8 VIP. The U.S. company is one of only 15 approved BBJ completion centers worldwide.
It currently is modifying the first two of five 747‐8Is delivered from Boeing with the Aeroloft, a modular product designed specifically for the 747-8 that provides eight sleeping berths above the main deck in the aft section of the aircraft.
“Four years ago, Greenpoint set its aim on a 747‐8 completion with strategic company investments and an organizational restructure,” said Sloan Benson, Greenpoint executive v-p. “The time we’ve spent with The Boeing Company understanding the unique aspects of the 747‐8 related to our Aeroloft development have enabled an advantageous project launch,” he added.
Greenpoint provides turnkey VIP aircraft interiors for private individuals and clients, including heads of state. In‐house talent includes interior design, engineering, program management, manufacturing and certification for interior installations and modifications.
Meanwhile, Odyssey Aerospace Components, a Greenpoint subsidiary and a VIP cabinetry facility for Boeing, Bombardier and Gulfstream business jets, is engineering interiors for a VIP 747‐8I and recently delivered custom units for a VIP BBJ and BBJ3. “Our engineering team has increased significantly…the engineers use current 3-D/CAD software and work closely with the manufacturing artisans. This results in artistry engineered as seen in our products,” said Kevin Watassek, Odyssey Aerospace Components director of engineering.
