Development of an Australian sovereign capability in the welding of specialist defence steels will allow Australian Industry to maximise its participation in upcoming Defence procurements, such as the LAND 400 program, that will see the Australian Defence Force’s existing Australian Light Armoured Vehicle and M113 armoured personnel carrier (APC) fleets replaced with new vehicles that deliver improved levels of firepower, protection and mobility.

Bisalloy chief executive and managing director Greg Albert welcomed the signing of the MoU, saying, "Bisalloy have a long history of successfully collaborating with partner companies to develop new and innovative solutions in steels.

"Our capabilities extend far beyond product supply, it extends to technical and product development assistance. As such, we are committed to offering our customers everything they need for future success."
