Meggitt, the international aerospace, defence and electronics group, has added another Airbus contract to its portfolio.
The group has won the contract to provide the fire detection, control and auxiliary power unit (APU) and engine extinguishing systems for the A320neo programme. Financial details of the contract were not disclosed.
The award follows the integration of Meggitt's established fire detection and control capability with the fire suppression equipment of recently-acquired Pacific Scientific Aerospace business, HTL.

"The APU/engine fire extinguishing system on the existing A320 family is shared between two suppliers. Backed by long-standing relationships with this customer and our excellent reputation for on-time delivery and quality, this integration has enabled us to compete for and win a sole source position on this exciting programme," said Dennis Hutton, President of Meggitt Safety Systems.
