Lincad wins contract with Team Leidos to supply batteries to MOD

Lincad has won a multi-million pound contract with Team Leidos to supply a wide range of primary cells and batteries for the UK Ministry of Defence.

Consisting of mainly lithium as well as some other cell chemistries, most of these products must be suitable for mission-critical environments and therefore have to be approved to UK Defence Standards.

Lincad will be employing its capacity to package and label supplied product 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.

The Company has been supplying a range of primary cells and batteries to the MOD since 2010 and this present contract is set to run for three years with the possible option of a one-year extension.

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 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.

Peter Slade, Lincad’s Joint Managing Director, commented: “We have forged excellent relationships with a number of the world’s leading cell and battery manufacturers to satisfy MOD requirements.”
