Enabling the extraordinary

At a glance over 11,00 people work for us across 5 continents and 16 countries. 69,000 aircraft rely on our critical components every day; over 80% of military fighter programmes have our wheel and brake systems; and we keep the lights on for 1 billion people across the globe. This is how we work. And this is who we are.

For 160 years, Meggitt engineering has solved some of the world’s toughest problems in aerospace, energy and defence, bringing convenience, safety and security to millions of lives.

When you next fly, the chances are you’ll see one of the 34,000 aircraft that land on Meggitt wheels and brakes day in, day out. When millions of people grab a beer at half-time of the World Cup final, it’s our industrial gas turbine sensors that help prevent power cuts.

But when everyone switches off, our technology doesn’t: most of the world’s pacemakers use Meggitt piezoelectric accelerometers, helping millions of people suffering from abnormal heart rhythms to live normal lives. Once implanted, not one of our accelerometers has failed.

The scale of what we do and the responsibilities we shoulder create a powerful sense of shared purpose and a deep emotional connection to our work.

Day in day out, we challenge our thinking to develop the technologies that will enable the extraordinary to happen, today and tomorrow. 

Check out a few projects we've been involved in.
