Chief executive John Bridges said: "This new business award on the largest and fastest growing engine programme in the world is a significant win in its own right.  

"In addition, with the work being based in continental Europe this further enhances Velocity's growth into this territory, and will be a contributing programme for a new manufacturing site for Velocity in mainland Europe in due course.  

"Whilst the company determines the right time and location for this site to be established, the composite material kits will be supplied from Velocity's UK sites."

The stock rose 2.5p to 65p, but was still 20p below the price at which it was listed in May last year.

"The shares continue to trade at a discount to its IPO price and offer good value at these levels," said David Buxton, analyst at City broker finnCap.  

"Today’s announcement should be taken well. We continue to see strong growth opportunities and significant share price upside over the medium term."
