Senior Engineer

Mechanical Engineering Graduate, Queen's University. "We're pretty much a young team—same age, same sort of mentality—so there's always a bit of craic. It's good to be with people who enjoy their work and who are prepared to throw themselves into it."

Stuart McKee
Business Unit Director

Stuart followed a traditional route direct from school into fishing. When that sector declined, he moved into B/E Aerospace as a Production Operator. Seventeen years later he is Business Unit Director, responsible for operations on the premium side of the business where a single seat can be worth $90 thousand dollars.


The Kilkeel facility was acquired by B/E Aerospace in 1993 and has enjoyed a period of major growth and investment. Our core business is the assembly of seating for commercial aircrafts—ranging from economy to business and first—class options. We also manufacture components for use in the assembly of seats.

As a market leader, B/E Aerospace Kilkeel plays a major role in our commercial success and has long been recognised as one of the highest quality seating suppliers in the world. Our commitment to quality has earned us a variety of internationally acknowledged accreditations, including that of the highly regarded British Standards Institution. Our client portfolio further reflects our success and consists of the world's biggest and most prestigious airlines, including British Airways, Lufthansa, Qatar and Emirates.
