Smiths Group wins Doha contract

Technology firm Smiths Group has won a €100m contract to provide airport security detection machines to Doha Airport, as the Qatari hub renews its systems ahead of the football World Cup in 2022. The deal, announced yesterday, is the biggest single-airport contract that Smiths’ detection arm has ever won, and will see the company supply hi-tech scanners to the New Doha International Airport, which is due to be completed early next year.
