Heads Up acquires cabin lighting expert STG
Thursday, 18 August 2022
STG Aerospace's concept-to-certification capability and extensive intellectual property are expected to provide a valuable boost for Heads Up Technologies' portfolio of lighting innovations.

Heads Up Technologies, a manufacturer of lighting systems, cabin management systems, and flight deck safety products, has acquired STG Aerospace, a manufacturer of proprietary aircraft cabin lighting products based in Cwmbran, UK and Miami, FL.

Established in the UK in 1995 with the vision of making flying safer and more cost-effective, STG Aerospace designed the first photoluminescent emergency guidance systems for aircraft, and in 2011 pioneered the LED mood lighting system, liTeMood. The company is well known in the commercial aviation market for its high-performing photoluminescent floor path marketing system, Saf-T-Glo.

“We are thrilled to welcome the STG Aerospace team to Heads Up Technologies to leverage our collective lighting solutions to meet critical OEM and operator needs across the entire aviation market,” says Robert Harshaw, president and ceo, Heads Up Technologies. “STG Aerospace's concept-to-certification capability and extensive intellectual property are excellent complements to Heads Up Technologies' portfolio of lighting innovations.”

“Designing high-quality emergency and cabin lighting components and systems that utilise our deep expertise and proprietary technology to create innovative solutions is our goal. Combining the expertise and products of both Heads Up Technologies and STG Aerospace makes an exciting solution set,” comments Grant Bennett, ceo, STG Aerospace.

This is the first acquisition by Heads Up Technologies since partnering with JLL Partners in 2019. Texas-based Heads Up designs, engineers and manufactures complex, proprietary cockpit, cabin and aircraft electrical components and systems to the business and commercial aviation markets. Heads Up has established itself as a trusted partner in the business aviation segment through longstanding relationships throughout the aviation supply chain.
