A good choice for Cobham

We were recently acquired by defence technology giant, Cobham plc, and it got me thinking about why they picked Axell and what made us an attractive proposition to them.

As Cobham themselves state “the Cobham brand is one of the oldest and most respected in the defence and aerospace market, with an unbroken pedigree reaching back to the 1930s.” The firm has been going for almost 80 years and with a legacy like that it makes sense that they look to acquire companies that reflect that innovative spirit and brand integrity.

I suppose these are some of the reasons they chose Axell as an acquisition to help accelerate its focus on the commercial marketplace.

With a 40 year history ourselves, this makes complete sense. If you want to learn a little more about the Axell heritage and how we worked to become one of the global market leaders in cellular and public safety coverage, watch our video…
