An award-winning Fareham manufacturing firm has passed the one million mark in sales of engineering products worldwide.

Family-owned Barnbrook Systems Ltd has reached the milestone as it celebrates its 40th anniversary this year.

The 35-strong company has sold a wide range of products including fire suppression actuators, relays, contactors and switches to private, commercial and public sector clients across the UK, Europe, India and Africa.

Managing director Tony Barnett said: “Our products are used in a vast array of assets worldwide from fighter aircraft and helicopters to engines and fire extinguishers.

“Our core products, such as actuators, have generated significant revenue streams, which have helped us to grow Barnbrook Systems into the company it is today.

“Passing the one million sales mark is a tremendous achievement and credit must go to our experienced, skilled and long-serving staff.

“It is another milestone as we celebrate our 40th anniversary this year, which will include our 12th consecutive appearance at Farnborough International Airshow.”

Award-winning Barnbrook designs, manufactures and supplies a range of electro-mechanical, solid state switching devices and systems.

Its products include relays, contactors, pressure transducers, data loggers, engine control units, circuit breakers, solenoids, brake controllers and flight engine controllers.

Barnbrook, based in Fareham Park Road, serves sectors including rail, aviation, aerospace, defence, maritime and commercial industries.

Patented technology for active detection in its actuators is built into the mechanism at the top of extinguishers and fire suppression cylinders and systems to trigger a spray or foam.

Actuators are activated automatically and can be activated manually to allow the release of fire suppressant materials when a blaze breaks out or is detected.

Barnbrook signed a six-figure deal with aerospace giant Leonardo for a fuel switch on Italian military aircraft at the last Farnborough International Airshow in 2016.

The company is a former winner of the National Passenger Safety title at UK Rail Industry Awards, Supplier of the Year at Light Rail Industry Awards, Innovation of the Year at the Solent Business Awards and Best Use of Technology at the South Coast Business Awards.
