World News – AU – Shadow Secretary of Defense Richard Marles visits DECO Australia


. .

Deputy Opposition Leader and Shadow Secretary of Defense Richard Marles visited DECO Australia at its manufacturing facility in Minto, NSW. Marles toured DECO’s facility to see firsthand its extensive defense capabilities, including surface finishing, protective coatings and non-flammable aluminum construction products.

DECO founder and director Ross Doonan met with the deputy opposition leader to discuss defense procurement policies and to encourage greater involvement of local small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in defense contracts.

« Australia has an abundance of local suppliers that would be beneficial to the defense industry, » said DECO Director Ross Doonan. “Yet they are underestimated and often overlooked by the Australian Defense and the prime contractors they work with. Getting involved is difficult – often SMBs aren’t even sure where to start. It is critical that these innovative, creative companies are given greater opportunities to enter defense contracts and make the valuable contribution they are able to make. ”

Key points of discussion included the importance of recognizing Australian manufacturers on key defense projects, the important need for the government to help SMEs overcome barriers to trade with prime contractors, such as creating ways to help them gain accreditation Support Primes and review Australia’s Industry Capability Program to increase its benefits to SMEs. It also discussed the urgency of strengthening the intellectual property protection of Australian companies in order to prevent our country’s unique inventions from being plagiarized by overseas suppliers and lower quality alternatives from taking advantage of quality Australian products.

With the COVID-19 crisis emerging this year, the Australian Defense has realized the importance of increasing the ability of the sovereign industry rather than relying on overseas suppliers. Marles and Doonan discussed the need to strengthen local supply chains and support the defense to support the skills and solutions that Australian SMEs can provide.

Mr Marles’ visit to DECO enabled him to see up close the benefits of a high quality Australian surface finish for a wide range of defense applications, from weapon and machine parts to infrastructure applications such as defense barrack buildings, signposts and much more.

« DECO Australia is a prime example of quality, customer focus and innovation, demonstrating how local businesses can not only contribute to, but strengthen defense supply chains, » said Doonan. “Our custom finishing processes and in-house testing facilities show how eager we are to develop unparalleled, creative, and compliant solutions to meet the needs of defense projects. Companies like us may be the answer many defense projects are looking for – we just need more credit and a chance to get directly involved. ”
