Registrations are closing soon for an Australia-wide roadshow which will give small businesses in capital cities and selected regional locations the chance to be a part of Army’s biggest project.
Minister for Defence Industry, the Hon Melissa Price MP, said the LAND 400 Phase 3 Mounted Close Combat Capability Roadshow is a huge opportunity for Australian industry to pitch their capabilities to shortlisted tenderers.
“Land 400 Phase 3 will acquire and support up to 450 Infantry Fighting Vehicles to replace the M113 Armoured Personnel Carriers and up to 17 Manoeuvre Support Vehicles,” Minister Price said.
“Australian industry will be absolutely critical to the success of this project.”
Defence will conduct the Roadshow in March and April 2020 with the two shortlisted tenderers, Hanwha Defense Australia and Rheinmetall Defence Australia, to facilitate opportunities for Australian industry involvement in the project.
“This is the time to highlight to Hanwha and Rheinmetall the strength and diversity of the Australian defence industry.”
Registrations to participate in the Roadshow close on 21 February 2020. For more information and to register, please visit: www.defence.gov.au/CASG/EquippingDefence/Land%20400.asp
