The award recognises the scale and scope of Marshall’s work in relation to supporting the RAF. David Newble of TTP Labtech, the award sponsor said: “Marshall Aerospace and Defence Group, with Rolls-Royce and Lockheed Martin, recently won a £369 million MoD contract to support the RAF C-130 Hercules transport fleet until 2022, underpinning 1,000 jobs. Marshall also supports civil and military projects globally, supplying the most sophisticated field hospitals in NATO and supporting 12 Air Forces around the world.”

Glen Clark, Chief Operating Officer at Marshall Aerospace and Defence Groups commented: “I was delighted to accept this award on behalf of everyone in the business as, up against tough competition, it recognises our commitment to and excellence in engineering as well as reflecting the hard work of everyone in the business”.
