LAST CALL FOR Sunshine Coast businesses to register for LAND 400 Roadshow

06 February 2020

Registrations are closing soon for an Australia-wide roadshow which will visit the Sunshine Coast to give local businesses the chance to be a part of Army’s biggest project.

Member for Fairfax, said the LAND 400 Phase 3 Mounted Close Combat Capability Roadshow is a huge opportunity for local industry to pitch their capabilities to shortlisted tenderers.

“Land 400 Phase 3 will acquire and support up to 450 Infantry Fighting Vehicles to replace the M113 Armoured Personnel Carriers and up to 17 Manoeuvre Support Vehicles,” said Mr O’Brien.

“I’d urge local companies not to miss out on the chance to speak directly to Defence and the Land 400 Phase 3 tenderers about how they can support the project.”  

Defence will conduct the Roadshow in March and April 2020 with the two shortlisted tenderers, Hanwha Defense Australia and Rheinmetall Defence Australia, to facilitate opportunities for Australian industry involvement in the project.

“This is the time to highlight to Hanwha and Rheinmetall some of the fantastic small businesses we have here on the Sunshine Coast.”

Registrations to participate in the Roadshow close on 21 February 2020. For more information and to register, please visit:
