Thales announced Wednesday the opening of its new facility in Townsville, Queensland to support Australian Defense Forces.

Major General Paul McLachlan, Head of Land Systems at the Defense Materiel Organisation, officially opened the facility in a ceremony also attended by Townsville MP Scott Stewart, representing the Premier of Queensland, plus Thales Australia CEO Chris Jenkins and other employees.

The team in Townsville will primarily support the ADF’s life-saving Bushmaster vehicles, which have proven so effective in protecting Australian troops on operations.

The Townsville facility will supplement the company’s main Bushmaster support centre at Eagle Farm, Queensland, and also the protected vehicles manufacturing facility in Bendigo, Victoria.
