Australian-owned and operated Aquaterro has officially opened its purpose-built Global Headquarters Facility, a premier ultra-high-security facility in south-eastern Melbourne, marking a critical investment in the nation’s high-quality, high-tech sovereign defence industry capability.
The new 5,000 square metre facility will also be the new and compartmented home to Broad Arrow Forge. Broad Arrow Forge represents the armament and EO engineering, armourer, service, and secure facilities division and skillsets of the Bulte Group.
The company leverages the 25-year experience of the group in providing unique survival, protective and equipment for people, as well as armaments and ammunition; Broad Arrow Forge was spun off from the product group to better and separately support Australasian customers seeking high-level engineering services in the defence and LE sector.
Group CEO and founder, Graeme Bulte, said, “We firmly believe in the future of Australian-owned defence capability in Australia. This significant investment of many millions of dollars of our own money in specialist infrastructure and technology capability. It shows our belief in Defence and law enforcement opportunities going forward.”
