Opportunities for Australian defence businesses to better engage with Rolls-Royce’s global supply chain have inched closer to realisation.

Opportunities for Australian defence businesses to better engage with Rolls-Royce’s global supply chain have inched closer to realisation.

The Minister for Defence Industry Christopher Pyne yesterday met with key Rolls-Royce executives in Bristol, UK with the view to firm the relationship with the manufacturing giant and seek proactive ways to grow the company’s footprint in Australia.

Pyne drew reference to Australia’s naval building capabilities and the existing relationships Rolls-Royce shares with leading global navies in the provision of powerful engines for naval vessels.

In particular, he acknowledged the partnership Rolls-Royce shares with contractor KBR in delivering whole-of-ship support services for the Royal Australian Navy’s Landing Helicopter Dock and replenishment vessels at Garden Island in Sydney, NSW.

“Australia’s continuous naval shipbuilding program is the most ambitious investment in our recent history,” he said. “My priority is to ensure the Australian shipbuilding industry is able to deliver and sustain our continuous build program.”

The minister stressed to Rolls-Royce’s executives the capability of Australian businesses and opportunities to connect with the company’s global supply chain.

Under the Centre for Defence Industry Capability, eligible Australian SMEs seeking to enter global value chains, or to export their products and services, are provided with a comprehensive package of defence export advice, export development and promotion, supply chain facilitation and business development.
