About us

Headquartered in the UK, Meggitt PLC is an international FTSE-listed engineering group with a workforce of over 11,200 people in facilities across Asia, Europe and the Americas.

160 years of engineering innovation

The Meggitt group’s history can be traced back to the mid-19th century, when our corporate ancestors were known for pioneering aviation instruments for hot air balloons, including the world’s first altimeter.

Our technical excellence, market knowledge and relationships with the world’s leading aerospace companies are therefore as old as aviation itself, a critical factor in an industry where new technology and suppliers have to work very hard for acceptance.
