IFPL announces acquisition of Cobalt Aerospace

IFPL has announced the acquisition of specialist aerospace design and manufacturing company Cobalt Aerospace Group Limited.

“We have known the Cobalt Aerospace team since the company’s formation in 2013 and have watched with interest as they have successfully brought several innovative solutions to market,” Read a IFPL statement.

“We are confident that by combining the considerable skills and expertise within both businesses, we will be able to significantly broaden and strengthen our offering to our customers”

The acquisition will add several new aircraft cabin technologies to IFPL’s product portfolio including: Cobalt Spectrum, a drop-in LED mood lighting system; Cobalt Unplugged, a range of wireless chargers that can be integrated into arm rests and other cabin surfaces; and GLS-7 photoluminescent emergency floor path markings.

Cobalt Aerospace will also bring their specialist certification knowledge and status as a UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) Part 21J Design Organisation to the IFPL Group. This means we will be able to support customers with classifying and approving aircraft changes across a variety of areas including avionics, cabin interiors, and electrical systems.
