AECOM, an infrastructure consulting firm, announced it is teaming up with the Australian Defence Force and defence industry in an infrastructure partnership with Australian Missile Corporation (AMC). AECOM is one of the largest providers of advisory and design services to the Australian Department of Defence and Australian Defence industry. AMC owner NIOA is the largest privately-owned Australian supplier of defence systems and munitions to the Australian Defence Force. Both organisations support the growth of Australian sovereign defence industrial capability.
“It is a privilege to work alongside the AMC, NIOA and other defence industry partners to develop innovative infrastructure solutions to support Australia’s Defence capabilities,” said AECOM Defence & Security Technical Director Malcolm Catchpole.
“AECOM’s Defence team is excited to be a part of Australia’s developing sovereign capability. This partnership allows us to expand on our long-term commitment to defence and local defence industry” said Andrew McDougall, AECOM’s Defence Industry director.
Robert Nioa, CEO of NIOA and the AMC, welcomed the support. “The consortium we are building will allow us to provide best-in-class technologies and in-country support services and we believe AECOM will provide invaluable industry knowledge and infrastructure experience,” he said.
