The grant will be used by Supacat to further develop its capabilities in ICT security infrastructure, design lifecycle management and supply chain integration with particular focus on enhancing its integration with Rheinmetall on the LAND400 program and growing its presence within the Rheinmetall global supply chains.
Michael Halloran, Managing Director Asia Pacific said, “We are delighted with yesterday’s announcement and grateful for the funding received from Defence and the government. Along with a significant investment by Supacat, this grant improves our ability to integrate with partner companies to develop capability in Australia and increases our opportunities to enter the global supply chains of Primes and OEMs.”
Since commencing operations in Australia in 2012, Supacat has delivered a number of acquisition and export programs, established through life support capabilities around the region and supported the LAND400 program as a Tier 1 supplier. In doing so, it has established itself as a significant contributor to the Land Combat Vehicle Sovereign Industrial Capability in Australia.
This grant will enhance Supacat’s ability to continue to develop capability for Defence in Australia and to develop future export opportunities.
