MNH Sustainable Cabin Services joins Linstol

MNH Sustainable Cabin Services has been acquired by Linstol, a member of the Hoffmann Family of Companies – a conglomerate of more than 120 brands.

MNH Sustainable Cabin Services provides performance management and refurbishment programmes to support inflight service and ground handling teams for many of the world’s leading airlines.

The senior management team at MNH consists of Mat and Emma Rance, Alex Hares, Tony Lorriman and Ryan O’Donnell. Its members will maintain an equity position and continue to lead and manage the business. Stephen Yapp is stepping down from the business but will continue to provide support in an advisory role.

In 2013, the senior team acquired MNH from Watermark Group as part of a management buyout. Their objective was to grow the company and to continue to work with their clients to drive efficiencies across aviation service chains.

A decade on, MNH has found a partner to provide long-term security for their team, enable further growth and continue to innovate in the inflight passenger comfort space.

Strategic relationship

MNH has enjoyed a strategic relationship with Linstol, a leading supplier of inflight passenger products for the airline industry, for more than 15 years. Linstol became a part of the Hoffmann Family of Companies in 2022.

There will be no visible change to the day-to-day operations for clients or suppliers, according to MNH. The company has expressed excitement at the opportunity to offer unique cradle-to-grave product programmes to its client partners.

“MNH’s achievements in the last 25 years have been incredible thanks to our specialist operational teams, unique performance management platform ROTIX and our strong partnerships with suppliers and airline clients. MNH’s performance management and refurbishment programmes covering inflight passenger comfort items naturally complement Linstol’s industry-leading design and production strengths. I look forward to the next chapter for MNH and to continue pushing the boundaries of innovation and service levels our airline partners expect,” said Mat Rance, CEO at MNH.

Linstol specialises in designing, developing and manufacturing inflight passenger headsets and earbuds, comforts, accessories and consumables. Celebrating 30 years of being in business in 2023, Linstol strives to transcend expectations, elevate the travel experience, champion environmental stewardship and create an organisation that nurtures growth, fosters creativity and celebrates successes.

“Linstol’s growth and success over the last 30 years is attributed to our people and our strategic partners. MNH joining the Linstol Family is a testament to Linstol’s vision of spearheading a revolution in the travel industry by providing visionary, sustainable and unparalleled passenger comforts and exceptional service. I look forward to collaborating with MNH on a larger scale to increase our product supply and service programs globally through our airline partnerships and pioneering technology whilst delivering on mutual sustainability objectives,” said Mark Russell, Chief Executive Officer at Linstol.
