Moog has had a relationship with the UK since 1958, when Bill Moog licenced George Dowty to manufacture Moog Servo Valves in Gloucestershire. Since 2015 Moog has provided both UK and global support from a new purpose built production facility. This includes the all-electric retractable roofs at Wimbledon, test systems for aero, auto and energy applications as well as the service of actuators found in steam and gas turbines.
Moog has been at the forefront of miniature actuation systems in motorsport since 1982, initially supplying active ride height equipment to Team Lotus for use on their Lotus 92 Formula 1 car. Over the intervening years, Moog has continuously developed a range of products and systems for actuation in many types of motorsport including Formula 1, World Rally Championship (WRC), Moto GP, Touring Cars, and Le Mans prototypes, as well as other high performance applications such as marine and robotics, which are built in Class 100,000 Clean Rooms.
