Boeing and the Commonwealth of Australia have agreed to extend and expand the company’s critical support for Australian aerospace suppliers with new contract bid opportunities.

Boeing and the Commonwealth of Australia have agreed to extend and expand the company’s critical support for Australian aerospace suppliers with new contract bid opportunities.

Building upon a past agreement that placed significant work packages with Australian industry, the new two-year contract with the Defence Strategic Policy and Intelligence Group will continue to grow the nation’s aerospace support capabilities and ensure Australian innovation remains a valuable component of the global aerospace supply chain.

Through Boeing’s Office of Australian Industry Capability, Australian companies have won more than $350 million in supplier contracts since 2007.

Those contracts primarily supported Boeing’s commercial and defence programs.

Based on business requirements, new contract bid opportunities for Australian suppliers could also include research and development programs, training and support, and work packages from Boeing’s non-Australian suppliers.

“It is especially gratifying as the first OEM to participate in Defence’s Global Supply Chain Program that we are able to renew this important agreement during our centenary year,” said Syd Blocher, vice president of Boeing Defense, Space & Security global sales and marketing for Australia and south-east Asia.

“The suppliers we work with across Australia have proven they have what it takes to compete for and win new business in our highly complex industry, and we hope to bring even more Australian companies into our global supply chain.”

In addition to contractual work, Australian companies will continue to benefit from Boeing expertise in lean manufacturing, program management, proposal writing and marketing, as part of the company’s commitment to mentor and grow small and medium-sized enterprises.

With more than 3,000 employees, Boeing in Australia has a broad portfolio of aerospace capabilities across the country, including advanced manufacturing of commercial aircraft components, complex defence systems design and production, research and development, training and sustainment services, and unmanned systems.
