Bisalloy and ADG Mobility extend co-operation agreement for supply of high-performance steel to South African markets
06 Jul 2020
Bisalloy Steels Australia and ADG Mobility (ADGM) South Africa have extended the co-operation agreement that sees both organisations continuing to working together to provide the South African market with high quality steel.
Bisalloy South Africa was formed in 2018 when the two companies identified strong opportunities for Bisalloy’s specialised defence grade materials in the wider southern African market.
ADG Mobility Ltd (ADGM) was formed in January 2017 by the founding members, senior management, and engineers of LMT to focus only on development and in-country production for international clients. Its aim is to focus on the design, development, and manufacturing of protected mobility solutions.
The focus of Bisalloy South Africa is to provide steel, and work with armoured vehicle manufacturers on a range of different vehicles produced in South Africa – not only for military use, but also for peace keeping, VIP protection, and cash-in-transit applications. Applications with Bisalloy’s range of BISALLOY® Armour and BISALLOY® Protection grades are ideally suited.
Bisalloy South Africa Project Manager, Kobus Griesel, said of the agreement extension: “Bisalloy offers an excellent product to the Southern African market, where options on high performance steels are historically very limited. Given South Africa’s rich history in armoured and landmine protected vehicles and equipment, the Bisalloy product offers great value to this ongoing industry. ADGM is excited and proud to bring this product to Southern Africa.”
Bisalloy Steel Group Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director Greg Albert said: “The team at ADG Mobility have a lot of experience in protected land solutions, and Bisalloy has the material to support these activities. We are pleased to continue our working relationship with ADG Mobility and grow and develop this strategic market.”
Bisalloy Steels is Australia’s only manufacturer of high strength and high hardness quenched and tempered steel plate used for armour, structural, protection and wear resistant applications.
Listed on the ASX and operating for 40 years, BISALLOY® Armour steel has become a leading product for defence applications in Australia and abroad and is specified for hulls in Armoured Personnel Carriers (APC), Light Armoured Vehicles (LAV), Collins Class submarines and the Bushmaster Infantry Mobility Vehicles in Australia, along with many APCs and LAVs worldwide.
