What we do
Headquartered in the UK, Meggitt PLC is a global engineering group specialising in extreme environment components and smart sub-systems for aerospace, defence and energy markets.
Some 10,000 people are employed across manufacturing facilities in Asia, Europe and North America and regional bases in Brazil, India and the Middle East.
Meggitt’s civil aerospace presence covers large commercial transports, regional aircraft, business jets, helicopters and general aviation.
Its defence markets cover all military aircraft types, land systems, naval platforms and aerial, land-based and marine threat simulation training and weapons systems development. The firearms element of this capability extends into law enforcement and security organisations.
The group’s growing presence in energy is driven by our core fluid controls, heat management and sensing and monitoring capabilities, many of which are deployed to help reduce the maintenance costs, fuel consumption and carbon emissions of industrial gas and steam turbines.
How we do it
Meggitt businesses are supported by an evolving group infrastructure with strong functional leadership.
This enables us to combine talents and technologies, share services and benefit from a range of centrally managed initiatives. From information technology to strategic sourcing and low-cost manufacturing, all are designed to boost the efficiency of our operations and give customers what they want.
Our consistent record of strong financial performance comes from businesses balanced across market segments, innovative products that generate stable, long-term aftermarket income, organic growth reinforced by acquisitions, and investment in people, facilities, operations and strategic technology development.
The group’s high performance culture is underpinned by Meggitt’s commitment to the safest operations for its employees, a tenacious ethics programme and pervasive trade compliance processes.
