Cumbrian firm wins Australian Navy contract

A company based in Cumbria has been awarded a contract by the Australian Navy to supply LED lighting for its Collins Class submarine.

Oxley Developments said the £270,000 deal helps to boost its expansion strategy, providing lighting systems in the marine environment.

Its products will be used in various compartments within the submarine, including the living quarters and the weapons area.

A total of 12 different types of lighting will be used, replacing existing fluorescent lamps and providing robust and reliable illumination.

Andy Bednarek, sales and marketing director at Oxley Developments, said: "We have already won contracts for surface vessels but this is our first major submarine project.

"We are very excited by the challenge and look forward to delivering a reliable and cost effective system for the Royal Australian Navy."

Based in Ulverston, Oxley Developments specialises in LED lighting, EMC filters, interconnect components and data capture solutions for the defence, aerospace, rail, electronics and telecommunications industries. (source englandsnorthwest)
