BMT has purchased niche submarine design, engineering and assurance firm, Effectiva.
Based in Australia, South Africa and France, Effectiva employs some of the best submarine experts in the industry. This acquisition is a statement of confidence by BMT in the continued development of Australia’s sovereign shipbuilding industry, significantly boosting the company’s local submarine expertise.
“BMT has a long-term commitment to Australia, one of the most exciting defence markets in the world, and this is an important strategic investment for the group. With this acquisition, we will now be even better placed to play an ever more predominant role in submarine design, engineering and assurance and meet the demands of a dynamic market. ” said Sarah Kenny, Chief Executive, BMT.
“The single greatest challenge in developing Australia’s national shipbuilding industry ambition is having the right people with the right skills and this is why we have brought Effectiva on board,” Peter Behrendt, Managing Director, BMT Defence and Security – Australia, said.
“Effectiva simply represents the best Australia has to offer in terms of submarine expertise,” Mr Behrendt said. “In particular, I would like to welcome Chelly Litster, Pat Donovan and Tim Fry – the main drivers of Effectiva – to the BMT stable,” he said.
The purchase of Effectiva is the latest move in BMT’s recent expansion of its Australia operations which now sees the company with a significant presence in most major Australian shipbuilding cities.
