Fincantieri Australia has welcomed the Federal Government’s commitment to the future of Australia’s defence export industry, announced by the Prime Minister today.


“As one of the world’s largest shipbuilding companies Fincantieri very much welcomes the announcement by the Australian Government today.”


“Fincantieri’s proposal to build nine FREMM-A Frigates in Adelaide maximises the use of Australian industry and introduces these companies to our expansive shipbuilding network of 20 shipyards, 80,000 subcontractors, spread across four continents.”


“Already Australian industry has found success with Fincantieri. We are exporting mechanical equipment and cruise ship blocks made with Australian steel from Perth and Adelaide and we’re confident Australia offers significant defence export opportunities.”


“To bring more Australian companies to export and markets we propose a comprehensive program of technology transfer into Australian industry and to market this industry as Australians commit to listing our business in Australia on the Australian Stock Exchange.”
