Thales Australia opens new Bushmaster armored vehicles support center
Thales Australia has strengthened its support to the Australian Defence Force with the opening of a new facility in Townsville, Queensland. Major General Paul McLachlan, Head of Land Systems at the Defence 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.

Kevin Wall, Thales Australia’s Protected Vehicles Vice President, said: “We are committed to providing the best support for the Bushmaster fleet around the country, and our investment in this new facility will deliver convenient services close to a major Army base.”

The Bushmaster Protected Mobility Vehicle or Infantry Mobility Vehicle is an Australian-built four wheeled, all-wheel drive armoured vehicle. More than 1,000 Bushmaster infantry protected mobility vehicles are in service in Australian Army.
