Event Description

WA Works Sundowner – BAE Systems

Join us for informal drinks, networking and the opportunity to hear from Nigel Stewart, Managing Director SEA 5000, BAE Systems.

With over 3,500 staff across the nation, BAE Systems is Australia’s largest defence industry company, with a proven track record of growing Australian Industry Capability as a trusted partner to a local supply chain of over 1,600 Australian companies.

For over 60 years BAE Systems has built and sustained complex naval platforms including Naval Frigates, Landing Helicopter Dock ships, patrol boats and minor war vessels for the Royal Australian Navy in shipyards around the country.

In August 2017, the company submitted its bid to design and build nine Anti-Submarine Warfare Frigates for the Australian Navy for the nation’s SEA 5000 Future Frigate program.

BAE Systems is offering the Global Combat Ship-Australia, a variant of its Type 26 Global Combat Ship which commenced manufacture for the UK’s Royal Navy in July 2017.

If successful, BAE Systems will give Australian businesses access to Batch 2 of the UK Type 26 program, as well as full access to its annual global supply expenditure of over $18bn.

By maximising opportunities for Australian industry at home and abroad, BAE Systems will create a sustainable shipbuilding industry that is both enduring and world class.
