Australian companies are being given the chance to win work on the multi-billion dollar LAND 400 Phase 2 armoured vehicle program during a series of workshops to be held nationwide.

The workshops were launched in Melbourne today by Minister for Defence Industry Christopher Pyne and aim to give local businesses an opportunity to showcase themselves and join the significant supply chain.

Minister Pyne said maximising Australian defence industry involvement to create and sustain jobs and spur economic growth is at the centre of the government’s plans for the groundbreaking project.

“LAND 400 gives us the opportunity to modernise our military and boost domestic manufacturing, which will create and sustain jobs in Australia,” Minister Pyne said.

“We have actively encouraged Australian industry participation – particularly in assembly, systems design, integration, testing and evaluation, as well as sustainment.

“More than 400 eligible Australian companies have registered to present their capabilities to BAE Systems Australia and Rheinmetall, the two companies shortlisted to participate in the next stage of the tender evaluation process.

“This is the chance for suppliers to get their slice of a very big pie.”

The workshops will travel to all Australian states and territories, finishing in Hobart.
