Monarch Aircraft Engineering's new Maintenance Component Centre in Northampton

SEC Interiors to Fit-Out Monarch Aircraft Engineering’s
new £2M Centre in Northampton



SEC Interiors has been awarded the complete CAT-B fit-out of Monarch Aircraft Engineering’s (MAEL) new Component Maintenance Centre in Northampton.


Following an extensive design and space planning period, SEC Interiors commenced works on the £2 million facility in April 2018 which is due for completion in September 2018.


The industrial fit-out of the brand new building on the Brackmills Industrial Estate includes:

  • The creation of a number of ground floor offices, meeting rooms and welfare areas

  • Various maintenance facilities including clean room, drying room, machine shop, composite ovens, spray booths and workshops

  • Multiple mezzanine floors to increase the capacity of the facility, being used for storage and production offices

  • An extensive electrical, heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) installation

  • Reconfiguration of existing pallet racking installed by SEC Storage in September 2017


The new Centre is located mid-way between MAEL’s Luton and Birmingham base maintenance facilities, and within four hours’ drive all of its UK line maintenance stations. It will employ 20 people creating 10 new jobs.


“We are very privileged to work with MAEL on the fit-out of this new prestigious Component Maintenance Centre” commented Russell Coleman, Sales Director of SEC Interiors.


“We have worked with MAEL since 2010 on a number of projects at their Luton and Birmingham bases and are proud to continue this working relationship and support them in their long term growth plans”.


Chris Dare, Managing Director of Monarch Aircraft Engineering said: "SEC Interiors has been an invaluable partner to MAEL on a wide range of projects over the last eight years, and has worked seamlessly with us to ensure the essential alignment of facility design with business efficiency and employee well-being."


Monarch Aircraft Engineering has provided maintenance and repair overhaul services for more than 50 years and has significant experience, working with some of the world’s leading airlines including Thomas Cook, Virgin Atlantic Airways and Wizz Air.
