Oxley Group’s anti collision lights have been selected as a finalist in the Electronics Industry Awards.
The lights form part of a new business strategy developed with support from Sharing in Growth and will compete in Aerospace & Defence Product of the Year Category where an industry panel and popular vote will help judge the outcome. The winner will be announced at an industry lunch in London on 21 June.
Oxley developed its range of Anti Collision lights for UAVs, military helicopters and fast jet aircraft. Designed to replace conventional strobe based lighting, Oxley is confident that they are superior to strobes in all areas being smaller, lighter, brighter, more robust and are more reliable.
The Oxley range includes the Tri-mode Anti-collision Light (TMAC) and the ROTOX as well as a new variant light developed for use by Saab and Airbus. Oxley’s anti-collision light customers include many of the world’s major aerospace platforms such as the Saab Gripen, the CH-53, the C-295, the Sea King, the Super Puma, the UH-1N, the Black Hawk, and many others.
Said marketing manager Jayne Moorby: “This is fantastic news and a real testament to all of the team, particularly those who design and build these products. Thanks everyone and well done! Achievements like this really raise the Oxley profile and this in turn continues to contribute to our success.”
Oxley Group has also won Best Community Involvement Award for their Bright Stars project, which has supported 300 children to develop business insight and employability skills.
The scheme is just one of several supported by Oxley to help develop a local interest in STEM and aerospace careers and to provide positive role modelling for young women. So far Oxley’s corporate social responsibility activities have benefited more than 10,000 young people.
