Why visit us at AIX? Your gateway to innovation and inspiration.

Muirhead has proudly supplied the aviation industry since the 1940s. Our fine Scottish leather, high-performance aviation products, and sustainability credentials are well-known and trusted by the industry. Our team has built long-lasting and trustworthy relationships with many fantastic industry experts. However, there are many exciting reasons to visit us and meet the team in Hamburg.  

  1. Explore our new aviation products, featuring chrome-free, heavy metal-free tanning, and free FR technology, further advancing our environmental sustainability. Muirhead is the natural choice for performance. We have fully replaced our existing tanning chemistry with compostable technology and removed as many fossil fuel-derived components and heavy metals as possible without compromising technical excellence. FreeTAN® with free FR helps reduce environmental impact. Our free FR technology is an efficient, environmentally friendly, non-toxic, halogen-free fire-retardant treatment. We are proud to introduce tanning techniques that embrace benign chemistry and eliminate the use of fossil fuel-derived components, PFAS, bisphenols, and heavy metals for fully compostable products at the end of life. 
  1. Join us for a stimulating conversation with Dr. Warren Bowden, our esteemed Head of Innovation and Sustainability, on how we can collaborate to drive sustainability in the aerospace industry. You'll also get a firsthand experience of our innovative FreeTAN® and BioTAN® technologies. Dr. Warren will be unveiling and presenting our latest products at 10:00 a.m. on Tuesday 28th May. 
  1. Be the first to witness Jamie, our visionary designer, unveil his revolutionary concept for aircraft seat covers that cater to the unique needs of neurodiverse individuals. The 'Sensation' collection is a masterpiece designed to inspire CMF designers as they reimagine the future of passenger-centric aircraft cabins. This collection is specifically tailored to address common travel challenges faced by neurodivergent passengers, including those with autism spectrum disorder, learning impairments, or ADHD, by offering a more inclusive and comfortable travel experience. 
  1. Last but not least, AIX is more than just an opportunity to showcase aircraft interior innovations; it is also about connecting with people. We are excited to meet familiar and new faces from the industry and reconnect with old and new customers and friends. In the afternoons, we will expand our Sensation Design Studio and invite our visitors for a sensorial drink session. To enhance the experience, we will recommend food pairings that perfectly complement each single malt and vibrant Scottish gin concoctions to delight the senses. 
  1. Our visitors will have the opportunity to enter for a chance to win a one-of-a-kind art piece called "HIDE and Seek", created by VOICES X BY JAMIE. It is a sustainable and stylish masterpiece crafted with Muirhead aviation leather offcuts and upcycled clothing.

  2. We have another opportunity to win a pair of Philips Fidelio L4 headphones featuring our lowest carbon Muirhead leather and offering natural sound quality, noise-cancelling technology, superior call clarity, and a timeless Fidelio design.

We look forward to seeing you in Hamburg!
