COVID-19 has shone a light on just how critical sovereign industry and manufacturing is to Australia’s national security.
On this episode of the Defence Connect Podcast, host Phil Tarrant is joined by Robert Nioa, managing director of NIOA, Australia’s largest privately-owned supplier of small arms and ammunition to the sports shooter, law enforcement and military markets.
Nioa shares the lessons learned through the evolution of the business since its establishment in 1973 and how those lessons can inform lessons for a resurgent Australian manufacturing capacity in the post-COVID world.
