Australian industry on an upward trajectory

In a recent Manufacturers Monthly article, DMTC CEO Mark Hodge, the Head of Australia’s Joint Strike Fighter Program AVM Gordon, and BAE Systems Australia’s Aerospace Director Steve Drury discussed the JSF Program opening opportunities for Australian industry.

With production volumes increasing and the F-35 Program’s Global Support System maturing, defence and industry will continue to work closely together to optimise Australian industry participation in the F-35 Program.

“There are some challenges ahead, which means Australian industry will have to stay internationally competitive by improving efficiency; driving innovation, supporting skills development and maintaining quality,” AVM Gordon said.

By looking at both domestic and export opportunities – within both the defence sector and other related sectors – programs such as the JSF are “absolutely critical to clarifying the global competitiveness benchmarks” if SMEs are going to thrive, according to the DMTC.

“It’s long been understood that companies from SMEs right through to primes need a diversified base to thrive,” Dr Hodge said.

“The Australian Government’s commitment to the defence sector is certainly very welcome and it’s now a case of the rubber hitting the road as all of the promises in the suite of White Paper, Industry Policy Statement and the Integrated Investment Program documents start to come to fruition.”
