Our Cabin Catch Up interview series is where you will find insights from people within the cabin interiors industry.
This week we are joined by ISOVOLTA AG. For the last 30 years they have specialised in the production of materials for the interior of aircraft passenger cabins and cargo compartments. Find out how they responded to the challenges of 2020, and how they are now moving forward in 2021:
What became the top priority for your business once COVID-19 started to spread?
First of all the safety of our employees with the right measurements on our production line as well as offering home-office where possible. And then, of course, we had to secure our own supply chain and at the same time, we were working closely with our customers to work out what needs to be done individually. Most important though, we are more than glad that we have made it safely through the past months so far.
How many years have you exhibited at AIX?
ISOVOLTA has been exhibiting since the very first show in 2000. The first few AIXs we did share our stand with our Swiss friends LANTAL Textiles and with ACA from Germany. Since 2007, we have our own stand, for which we get a lot of compliments every year again and again. Being in Hamburg for AIX is a must for us, and we cannot wait to be back again.
How have you grown at the show since first exhibiting?
Indeed, we have been growing. As mentioned earlier since 2007 we exhibit on our own stand, and it had to be adopted every other year to scope with the huge number of guests and visitors we have. Also, our team coming for the show had been growing from a hand full to 25-30 people.
How have your objectives changed?
It has always been our goal to meet our customer, friends, and partners during these 3 days and to show our latest design and décor inspirations. This has never changed and will most likely never change.
What are your most memorable moments at AIX?
There are many. But most memorable to me personally are the moments when on day 3 the team leaves for flying home, and you can see tired but happy faces because the past 3 days where successful.
What has kept you coming back to AIX throughout the years?
Right from the beginning, this show was THE event for our industry. And as a well-known supplier to the industry who is simply appreciated to be there by so many of our customer, we would have never dared to miss out on one single AIX!
What are you most looking forward to at the next AIX?
To finally be able again to meet in person! Virtual meetings are an alternative but will never replace personal meetings. It will be an important sign to the industry and the world, the day the exhibition halls open for the AIX.
What will you be showcasing at the next AIX?
We will continue to show our decorative products and inspire with our designs. I do not want to tell too much, but I am confident that our ‘AIRDEC plus’, which is our decorative light panel will be an eyecatcher again!
