New contracts, including systems for the latest phase of the Eurofighter programme, have been won by TT electronics following the launch of the group's defence and aerospace growth initiative.
Subsidiary companies AB Connectors, MMG MagDev, TT electronic manufacturing services and Welwyn Components, have formed a single supply source to deliver integrated solutions to the group's UK based defence and aerospace customers, and are exhibiting jointly at DSEi 2007.

TT electronics Chief Executive Neil Rodgers says the initiative reflects the group's growing presence in the defence and aerospace sector. "By consolidating technical expertise and experience across our operations, we can offer customers seamless project management and high level confidentiality."

TT electronics provides services for sea, air and land based defence systems. This includes design support, assembly, integration and test of complex sub assemblies and global manufacturing of connectors, ferrites, magnets, wound components, resistors; LEDs and microelectronic assemblies.

"We are keen to support group companies that have identified development opportunities in the defence and aerospace market," said Rodgers. "Individually they each have a strong pedigree but their combined knowledge helps to consolidate our presence in the sector and further enhance our service to customers."
