“Defence is making it clear to all the primes, local and international, that they do need to engage local industry and to engage them in meaningful work, not just superficial type work. And as a result, they’re all knocking on the doors of SMEs and trying to establish partnerships in areas to work together.”
This week on the Defence Connect Podcast, president of AIDN NSW and Milspec Manufacturing business development manager Medhat Wassef joins us to discuss the future of small to medium sized businesses in the defence industry and how Australia can create a successful defence export industry by emulating the US and UK models.
Wassef takes us through the history of Milspec Manufacturing, his three decades of experience in defence and now the defence industry, and offers his advice to SMEs looking to make it in the defence space.
