Aviation Solutions by Bühler Motor

Comfort, ergonomics and efficiency included.

For airlines, the comfort and ergonomics of aircraft seats is an important differentiating factor which ensures high passenger satisfaction.
Our products allow aircraft seats to be operated conveniently, simply and quietly.
Bühler Motor has been supplying well-known manufacturers with actuators for aircraft seats since 2002, in close cooperation with Dornier Technologie since 2013.
The successful partnership was further strengthened by Bühler Motor’s aquisition of Dornier Technology in 2017, which now operates under the name of Bühler Motor Aviation GmbH.
Today, the Bühler Motor Group is a system supplier and expert for electronic and pneumatic systems for aircraft seats.
