London. 17 February 2020. Lincad, UK designer and manufacturer of specialist batteries and charging systems, has won a significant new contract from Team Leidos to supply a range of cells and batteries for ultimate use by British armed forces.
In addition to its own bespoke products, Lincad supplies cells and batteries of various chemistry from other manufacturers, using its extensive in-house testing facilities to approve products and to demonstrate continued product performance over time. This is critical where products are used for mission-critical environments, with many requiring approval to UK Defence Standards.
Lincad will also be employing its capacity to package and label supplied products for all modes of transport, including full adherence with the stringent IATA regulations. The company’s own Dangerous Goods Safety Adviser (DGSA) supports all aspects of product supply.
This contract is in addition to the business awarded by Team Leidos to Lincad in June 2018. Peter Slade, Lincad’s Joint Managing Director, commented, “we’re pleased to have won an additional contract from Team Leidos. We have been supplying products to military customers, including the UK MOD, for more than 30 years. This win highlights the confidence that defence customers have in Lincad to supply high performance product, often in very large volumes, at a competitive price.”
Team Leidos, led by Leidos Europe Ltd, is helping to implement the MOD’s Logistic Commodities & Services Transformation (LCS[T]) programme which is designed to enhance and improve the UK’s defence supply chain. Providing essential procurement, distribution and storage services for UK MOD materiel, Team Leidos is working to transform the supply chain by integrating a complex mixture of services, at low risk, using a modern suite of systems.
