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.
