Contracts from MBDA to MESKO S.A. were signed last Friday (6th September) at MSPO 2019 in Kielce, Poland.

The scope of work includes components within multiple missiles including the CAMM air defence missile family and the Brimstone strike missile.

Warren Devine, MBDA Head of Industrial Co-Operation Poland, said: “These contracts validate our assessment that MESKO can provide quality missile components to MBDA’s exacting standards whilst enhancing our global competitiveness.  MESKO will become a valuable part of MBDAs supply chain and a strong partner for deep cooperation.”

Gabriel Nowina-Konopka, Vice CEO of Mesko S.A. said: “Today's agreement confirms our capabilities in manufacturing and delivering advanced missile systems. We are now included in the supply chain of components for one of the largest global manufacturers, and we are working on expanding this partnership on other ambitious projects.”

The contracts between MBDA and MESKO S.A., a PGZ company, follow on from the signing of a strategic co-operation agreement between MBDA and PGZ on missiles in February 2017. Since then, detailed assessments have been undertaken between both parties, which recognise the benefits and strengths of co-operation between each other.

CAMM and Brimstone are also offered to Poland for the Narew and Tank Destroyer programmes.  In addition to global supply chain opportunities, MBDA’s co-operation with PGZ involves unprecedented depth of missile technology and know-how transfer to Polish industry.
