Ontic Signs Second Product License with Ultra Electronics

February 08, 2018

CHELTENHAM, UK- Ontic, a BBA Aviation company and the aerospace industry's leading provider of 'Extended Life Solutions' for OEM legacy products has entered an agreement with Ultra Electronics' Precision Control Systems business to license the OE manufacturing and aftermarket support for certain legacy military cockpit controls, switches and indicators.

These products are an extremely good fit for Ontic's existing capability with a complimentary customer base. This will be the 11th product line introduced into the Ontic Cheltenham facility since its foundation in 2012 and marks the first license to be signed following its investment in a major capability enhancement project earlier this year.

"We are extremely pleased to further develop our strong relationship with Ultra Electronics with this license agreement,"

Gareth Hall, Ontic President and Managing Director said.

"Supporting OEMs like Ultra Electronics on their mature, legacy, or non-core products and providing lifetime support to customers is Ontic's sole focus."
