ABOUT LFD LTD

AN AS9100 COMPANY

BACKGROUND

LFD designs, develops, manufactures and repairs an extensive range of innovative lighting equipment for use with night vision goggles on aircraft and ground vehicles. Full consultation with end users at the design stage ensures optimal operational effectiveness.

LFD Limited was set up in 1989 in Gosport, Hampshire and rapidly acquired a market leading position for the supply of covert and visible lights to military aircraft customers on both fixed and rotary wing platforms. Later developments include a range of LED-based aircraft anti-collision lights, including the world’s first 2000 candela white LED unit for the AW159 Wildcat helicopter. In 2004 LFD became the UK distributor for Luminator NVG aircraft external lighting products.

EXPANSION

In 2010 LFD acquired Mellish Precision Engineering in Segensworth to further enhance its manufacturing capability. Under LFD ownership MPE rapidly gained AS9100 quality certification. Following significant investment in both machining and assembly facilities all LFD production operations were transferred to the Gosport site.

In 2014 MPE was formally merged with LFD and in 2017 all functions, including head office, design, machining, assembly and repair were combined in one facility at Zenith House, Gosport. The company operates an AS9100 certified quality management system. A copy of the AS9100 certificate may be downloaded here.
