Racal rejig streamlines defence businesses
Alex Mayhew-Smith Racal has reorganised its three defence radar and communications businesses into one organisation, Racal Defence Electronics. The changes were made to streamline the business in the face of a wider consolidation across the defence industry, said a spokesman. The company denied that the reorganisation was carried out in order to reduce costs but admitted it had recently made 35 people redundant from its radio division as part of manufacturing operation changes. Racal Defence Electronics will operate with three main divisions: Communications, Electronic Warfare/Radar and Command Information Systems. Richard Moon will become CEO of the business. Meanwhile, the firm said there could be a decision on the award of the delayed ?750m ASTOR contract later this month.
