A North Wales firm has won a six-year deal with Qioptiq to maintain battle equipment including night vision goggles and laser aimers for the Ministry of Defence. 

Qioptiq provides support for vital surveillance and targeting equipment across the UK Armed Forces from frontline infantry and Royal Marine soldiers, to military specialists such as bomb disposal experts, including infantry periscopes, laser aimers and target locating equipment.

Secretary of State for Wales Alun Cairns said: "This massive contract for Qioptiq underlines Wales’ reputation as a world leader in the defence technology sector, coming hot on the heels of the choice of DECA Sealand as the global repair hub for the F35 aircraft."
