Introduction of Antimicrobial Materials

July 2020

Sheffield has a history of innovation and exceptional supplier partners. As the coronavirus continues to negatively impact airline travel, now more than ever there is a need to build trust and confidence in air travel. In that spirit, Sheffield has partnered with several of its partner suppliers to introduce antimicrobial materials to high-touch items in the cabin. From seats to lavatory parts and everything in between to help airlines further build the confidence and safety of their customers and staff. In most cases, these improvements can be done at no additional cost and in some cases at a reduced cost from current expenditures.

Sheffield continues to be dedicated to its hallmark core values of safety, compliance, and reliability and these new product characteristics will further cement our commitment to our customers and partners. We look forward to working with everyone in the industry to ensure everyone’s success.

Now more than ever, Sheffield is committed to ensuring our customer’s and partners’ success. We are working diligently to develop new ways to provide the same or higher quality engineering services including our signature Alternate Materials Solution Program™ (AMSP™) to help ensure everyone’s success during these trying times.
