Leidos Australia has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with J3Seven, an Australian small business specialising in chemical, biological, radiological, exploitation and screening products. The company also has the ability to conduct training and maintenance of the products in Australia.
With locations across the Australia and backed by over 75 years of experience, J3Seven supplies world-class solutions to the military and first responder agencies. The MoU will provide increased collaboration and delivery opportunities for both companies by jointly identifying and developing new technologies and solutions for the Australian Defence Force and related industries.
As part of the MoU, Leidos Australia will work to integrate J3Seven into their global supply chain, provide support on future projects and enable manufacturing opportunities in Australia.
"We welcome the opportunity to work with Leidos Australia going forward. The ability to leverage the network of a global defence contractor will bring significant benefit to our business. We look forward to sharing our expertise in the development of new and innovative solutions for the Australia defence industry," said Gareth Molnar, director of J3Seven.
J3Seven is part of Leidos Australia’s larger strategy to support Australian SMEs with their growth agendas in order to improve the country’s defence capability.
