The federal government is calling for Australian defence industry businesses to lodge their applications for inclusion in the 2022 Australian Defence Sales Catalogue.
With numbers of companies in the catalogue increasing every year, defence industry minister Melissa Price highlighted the benefits of inclusion.
Price said: “The catalogue is a powerful reference for Australian defence businesses to demonstrate their innovative products and services to prospective customers around the world.
“The Defence Sales Catalogue has been a major success for Australian businesses, with companies like South Australian REDARC Electronics securing a number of enquiries and contracts from overseas governments.”
Now in its sixth edition, the catalogue has featured a number of companies which are enjoying export success including:
- Matrix Composites and Engineering, manufacturer and supplier of specialist composite syntactic buoyancy systems from Henderson, Western Australia
- Victorian-based Supacat, specialising in high mobility all-terrain vehicles
- And ship and shipyard sustainment company Norship, based in Cairns, Queensland.
Supacat exported its first product from its Australian operation in 2018 – Special Operations Vehicles (pictured) – to the New Zealand Ministry of Defence.
The catalogue is distributed by internationally-based Australian Defence Attachés worldwide.
“I encourage all Australian defence industry businesses to register their interest in participating in the 2022 Australian Defence Sales Catalogue.”
