Defence and Commercial Marine
Our long and respected history servicing the Defence and Commercial Marine Industries has been established from our ability to work closely with Primes, the Department of Defence and naval defence contractors to meet tight deadlines and provide safe, high quality solutions to extend asset life.
Our work in the Defence sector includes long-term contracts such as the ASMD Capability Upgrade Programme and ANZAC Group Maintenance contracts and has seen us acknowledged for our ability to work in challenging environments and our vigilance towards safety and environmental considerations whilst working effectively with other contractors.
