Moog in Wolverhampton contributes its world-leading flight control technologies to global aircraft programmes including Boeing's 787 and China's COMAC C919 as well as several military aircraft.

Moog moved into the new facilities from its previous location, the nearby -- and Second World War era - former Boulton Paul/ Dowty/ Smiths Aerospace/ GE Aviation factory. The £20m investment represent a strong commitment to the Midlands and the current workforce of 430 as Moog Aircraft Group reorganises product engineering and manufacturing of both civil and defence work at the global scale across its sites in the USA, UK and Philippines.
