Nordam delivers first 7X cabinets

Nordam (Booth No. 1539) recently delivered the first shipset of cabinets for Dassault Aviation’s Falcon 7X, less than a year after being selected to produce all cabinetry for the large cabin trijet back in April 2008. A three-stage delivery of the first shipset began on March 9 from the company’s cabinetry division in Wichita, Kansas.

This is the first time Nordam’s Wichita facility has worked for Dassault, although other divisions of the Tulsa, Oklahoma-based group have worked with the French airframer over many years. The cabinetry team has developed composite parts and components, interior liners and shells, and flat panels for the 7X. Nordam is also charged with producing a full complement of interior furnishings ranging from galleys to bulkheads, sliding doors, vanities, table tops and side ledges. 

All parts have been customized to the specifications of 7X customers and some require the use of exotic veneers and precious metal plating for hardware.    

The company also makes composite aircraft structures, interior shells, custom cabinetry, radomes and aircraft transparencies such as cabin windows, wing tip lenses and simulator screens.
