Using BBs for research into whether you should invest in a company is totally foolhardy. You must appreciate there are those on here who have no interest in the company other than to denigrate long term investors for their choice in where they spend their hard earned, or berate directors for their management. For me, I have held Melrose for 10 years or more, made shed loads of money and more than happy to hold as part of my balanced portfolio You pays your money and takes your chances. Good luck, but don't believe everything you read on here.

GKN AEROSPACE DELIVERS THERMOPLASTIC COMPOSITE COMPONENTS FOR BELL V-280 Thermoplastic Ruddervators and Recycled Thermoplastic Access Panels save weight, costs and production lead time One of the first military aircraft with thermoplastic technology on board GKN Aerospace has delivered a pair of thermoplastic composite, induction welded Ruddervators, and two compression-moulded Access Panels manufactured from re-used thermoplastic waste material, to Bell Helicopter, a Textron Inc. (NYSE: TXT) company. Ruddervators are the control surfaces for an aircraft with a V-tail configuration. As partner on Bell’s Team Valor, GKN Aerospace has designed and manufactured the complete thermoset composite V-Tail for the Bell V-280 Valor. The Ruddervators and Access Panels are technology demonstrators and are planned for flight testing on the aircraft in 2019. This will make the V-280 one of the first military aircraft flying with thermoplastic components. GKN Aerospace is a technology leader in thermoplastic technology with thermoplastic rudders, elevators and fuselage panels flying on a wide range of business jets. Injection of this technology on a military platform opens opportunities for wider application in the defence market. Thermoplastics offer significant advantages in terms of weight, costs, production time and environmental impact. The two compression-moulded Access Panels have been manufactured from recycled thermoplastic waste material from the two Ruddervators and have been developed in a Dutch TPC-Cycle research program led by Saxion. GKN Aerospace is a partner in the research program. In parallel to the demonstrator program, the GKN Aerospace global design team supports Bell with further design optimization of the V-Tail. John Pritchard CEO GKN Aerospace ASEA says: ’’We are proud to be part of Team Valor and to be selected for the design of the V tail. It is very exciting that our cutting edge thermoplastic technology will be flight tested for the first time on the state-of-the-art V-280 Valor.’’

Led by GKN Automotive, a tier one electric vehicle driveline supplier, has joined up with Drive System Design and the University of Nottingham as part of the £8m project - doubled by the APC’s match-funding scheme. The project, called ACeDrive, intends to produce “the world’s lightest and most efficient electric vehicle powertrain suitable for the volume market”. GKN claims it will adopt “groundbreaking concepts in cooling and system integration” to reduce the size and cost by 25%, the weight by 20% and efficiency by 10% compared with current equivalent EV systems. The system will combine the electric motor, transmission and inverter in one compact unit. GKN claims development is currently in the simulation analysis phase, with the final design to be commenced later this year and prototype testing in 2020. The project is based in GKN’s Innovation Centre in Abingdon, Oxfordshire. Gordon Day, General Manager at GKN Hybrid Power Limited, said "we are developing a truly advanced eDrive system, more compact and cost-effective than other technologies on the horizon. Our ambition is to help the UK take the lead in electric powertrain design and manufacturing capability”.
