Bisalloy hosts Hanwha for site tour and talks
16 Mar 2021
Bisalloy Steels recently hosted representatives from Hanwha Defense Australia for discussions on the latter’s bid for LAND400 Phase 3.
Bisalloy and Hanwha have formed a close working relationship following the rapid development and qualification of steel manufactured by Bisalloy used to construct the Redback vehicles for the Risk Mitigation Activities now underway.
“It was a great opportunity to tour the Bisalloy facility and see first-hand where their world-class steel is made,” said Millie Keating, Head of Industrial Development Unit and AIC Lead at Hanwha Defense Australia. “We also had some productive discussions in relation to our ADF programs and have come away impressed and excited by their customer focus, deep technical understanding and the growing opportunities for Bisalloy and their key supply chain partners to continue their involvement in our vehicle programs.”
Glenn Cooper, Bisalloy Group CEO and MD commented: “Over the years we’ve worked hard to adapt to market needs and have developed a range of products that are extremely well regarded and trusted by our customers across a range of industries. Working with Hanwha for their armour steel requirements is a further example of the agility and flexibility Bisalloy can offer.”
Following talks, Bisalloy provided the Hanwha team a tour of Bisalloy’s manufacturing facility. Speaking of the discussions and tour, Bisalloy’s Business Manager – Armour and Protection steels, Justin Suwart, commented: “Bisalloy is glad to continue engagement with global defence prime contractors like Hanwha on their steel requirements. Bisalloy services extend beyond product supply to technical specification and product assistance, and we are committed to offering our customers everything they need for future success. Hanwha is a dynamic company, and we welcome their engagement.”
