Lockheed Martin Australia’s Sikorsky operations to be consolidated in existing facility in Nowra

Brisbane facility to close with future operations continuing alongside Australian defence
customer facility at HMAS Albatross.

BRISBANE, Thursday August 29: Sikorsky Australia, a Lockheed Martin company, today
announced it will close its Brisbane operations by 31 January 2020 and consolidate all
activities to Nowra, adjacent to the Australian defence customer facility at HMAS Albatross.
This move will strengthen focus on the delivery of core defence business across the
Company’s broad portfolio for the Australian Defence Force including the MH60 Romeo

This will impact the Brisbane workforce and Lockheed Martin Australia is committed to
supporting employees through this consolidation process, including redeployment within
Sikorsky Australia and the wider operations and programs of Lockheed Martin Australia.
“Lockheed Martin Australia is engaged in the integration and sustainment of advanced
technology systems, products and services across space, air, land, sea and cyber domains in every mainland state and territory,” said Lockheed Martin Australia Interim Chief Executive, Scott Thompson.

“Our diverse programs form a critical backbone for Australia’s current and future defence
capabilities including Rotary Wing Systems and sustainment, next generation pilot training,
combat systems integration and surveillance across air, sea, land and space domains,” added Mr Thompson.

“We have significant opportunities for growth across all of our Australian business and we will continue to deliver exceptional program performance and leading innovation for Australia.”

During this period of consolidation, Lockheed Martin Australia will continue to work with
employees, customers, suppliers to ensure a smooth transition to ensure continued program performance across our portfolio.
