Tour of Austal and CIVMEC

January 29, 2016
I had the opportunity to tour CIVMEC and Austal, located at the Australian Marine Complex, south of Perth. The future of Australia’s advanced manufacturing base looks strong when you see first-hand the tremendous success CIVMEC and Austal are having competing with our international competitors. When thinking about the future of Australia’s ship building capability we need to think in terms of national capacity and the fact there is expected to be more work than any one State can handle, and that the modular construction methodology allows for geographically disbursed construction.
