According to a statement from the two companies, the event highlights the Commonwealth’s RMP East (Regional Maintenance Provider East) opportunity and provides a pathway for local industry to collaborate with maritime solutions from Babcock and A&P Australia.

The event will be held both online and in person, with the in-person event providing networking opportunities with representatives from business, supply chain and industry groups.

Babcock’s head of customer solutions, Craig Schwartz, explained that combining the individual company’s supply chains will help ensure the success of the future maritime support model.

“Babcock and A&P are proud to host an important event that connects a range of industry players, given the major current and anticipated developments in the maritime defense sector,” he said.

“Our current supply chain and future solution providers are central to providing a truly national capability for the sustainment of Royal Australian Navy (RAN) warships.

“Thanks to your contributions and support, we can provide a superior and highly competitive solution through RMP East to build sovereign capability, helping SMEs and prime contractors continue their service for RAN.”

The event was touted as an opportunity to provide feedback to both companies, with A&P Australia managing director Scott Willey noting that suppliers will have a dedicated time to ask questions of the company.

“We want to engage with current vendors and future solution providers to deepen our understanding of their offerings and how we can improve collaboration to improve value to the Navy and CASG,” he said.

“Babcock and A&P are proud to include local suppliers to deliver for the Navy and we are committed to providing suppliers with growth opportunities as we grow.”

According to a press release from the companies, an industry questionnaire will be released at the end of the event to allow attendees to communicate their views and how companies can support them in delivering the future maritime support model.
