When you think interior design, you probably think of a beautiful home, a high-end restaurant, or a swanky office. But what about a private jet? It’s someone’s job to design those, too. That’s what Greenpoint Technologies does. Specializing in VIP and head-of-state interiors for business jets, Greenpoint is recognized worldwide for technologically advanced innovation. The company has in-house experts who work on conceptual development, detailed design, engineering, certification, manufacturing, and installation. Founded in 1987, Greenpoint is part of Zodiac Aerospace, a world leader in aerospace equipment and systems for commercial, regional, and business aircraft, as well as helicopters and space applications. Greenpoint also designed its Carillon Point office in Kirkland, one of its four offices in the United States. Take a look around.
