Press Release – 8th October 2014
A leader in the design and manufacture of specialist batteries and chargers, Lincad is pleased to announce that it has been awarded three new R&D contracts by the MOD. This will provide the funding required for the company to take the development of three key new products through to the production stage.
Lincad has been at the forefront of developing specialist solutions for the MOD’s battery and charger requirements for over 12 years. Over that time, through a process of mechanical refinement and the use of cutting edge cell technology, the company has consistently delivered products that have helped to reduce the load that soldiers in the field have to carry, with no loss of efficiency or reliability.
Brian Soden, Lincad’s Managing Director, commented:
“We’re delighted that the MOD has decided to fund the further development of these three new products. We have every confidence that our continued work will bring significant benefits to soldiers deployed in operational roles.”
