Aerolux Under New Management

 - January 2, 2013, 1:30 AM

Galley inserts supplier Aerolux has come under new management following the passing of founder and owner Ken Metcalfe in June.

A leadership team headed by new chairman and CEO Tony Robinson includes Rob Shelton. Both men come from a long tenure with UKIP Media & Events and the Aircraft Interiors Expo, which Robinson founded.

Robinson gave credit to an experienced Aerolux staff with great skills and a commitment to quality. “It is now time to harness these strengths to move Aerolux forward,” he said. “We will be unveiling new and improved products in the coming months.”

The UK-based company was formed in 1988 and in recent years has developed into a major player in galley products for both the airlines and business aviation, from beverage makers to refrigerators to ovens.
