MORE JOBS CREATED AS BMT AUSTRALIA OPENS NEW ADELAIDE OFFICE

In yet another sign of the growing local defence industry, BMT Australia has opened its doors in Adelaide.

Minister for Defence Industry, the Hon Christopher Pyne MP, today formally opened the company’s Adelaide office.

BMT Australia, a subsidiary of BMT Group, is a maritime engineering, science and technology consultancy which has key roles in many major naval defence projects.

Minister Pyne said it’s great to have a company such as BMT setting up shop in Adelaide.

“It is fantastic to see BMT Australia expanding its footprint after operating in Australia since 2005,” Minister Pyne said.

“BMT Australia yet another organisation expanding their offices and workforce because of the Turnbull Government’s huge investment in the country’s defence capability.”

“The new Adelaide premises will house a submarine engineering capability and members of the senior leadership team including the Managing Director and Chief Financial Officer.”

“By July the company is set to double their staff in Adelaide to almost 20.”

“This proves yet again South Australia is one of the real hubs of naval shipbuilding in Australia, in fact BMT has indicated they are creating more jobs within their company than ever before.”

The company has been supporting major defence projects for years including the Air Warfare Destroyers and Landing Helicopter Docks.
