The defence hub to be built at Fishermans Bend will be the biggest of its type in the nation and is where the Company plans to manufacture the Australian Army’s Armed Combat Reconnaissance vehicles.
BAE Systems Australia will build a world class defence hub in Victoria, consolidating the company’s Victorian Maritime, Aerospace and Land businesses into a single facility that will foster collaboration and innovation, delivering sustainable jobs over multiple projects for decades to come.
BAE Systems Australia CEO Glynn Phillips said:
“The creation of this new defence hub will provide sustainable, long-term, highly skilled work for Australians and further develop and grow the nation’s Sovereign Industry Capability.“I am delighted that we can be part of Victoria’s ambition to develop a defence industry that is globally focused, supporting the transition to a stronger and more diversified economy that will benefit all Australians.”
BAE Systems has committed to creating a national supply chain to support its Land 400 operations and recently committed to $200 million worth of work to eight Victorian companies and will make additional announcements in coming weeks.
