£0.5m lighting equipment order for Victoria Line upgrade

LPA Group plc (“LPA”), the AIM-quoted manufacturer and distributor of electronic and electro-mechanical systems and components, is pleased to announce that its subsidiary, LPA Excil Electronics Limited (“LPA Excil”), has received an order worth £0.5m to supply electronic Fluorescent Lamp Driver Units for the new Victoria Line Upgrade (“VLU”) trains’ main passenger saloon lighting.     


This follows four earlier contracts won by LPA companies to supply VLU components: LPA Excil is supplying Light Emitting Diode (LED) based, step-lights, which illuminate the threshold between train and platform, LPA Niphan is supplying inter-car jumpers and standby power supply rafts, and LPA Channel Electric is supplying relays to the new VLU trains. 


Delivery of this latest order will commence immediately and run through to 2012.


Peter Pollock, LPA Chief Executive, comments:


“We are delighted to have won this latest order, which brings the total value of LPA Group supply on VLU to approximately £3.0m. We have been enjoying a good run of orders at present which is building the order book for delivery over the next three years and beyond. There remain further excellent opportunities for the group which the team are working hard to secure.”
