Moog Australia has opened its expanded facility located in Heatherton. The multi-phase investment plan, set to take place over the next five years, aims at strengthening Moog’s Australian in-country capability and regional expansion.
The new facility can accommodate 40 additional engineering, technical and support employees. It will further develop local capabilities to design, build, and support through-life defence systems and solutions.
John O’Callaghan, Victorian Defence Advocate, officially opened the expansion.
“It is with excitement that we celebrate Moog’s continued growth and expansion in both Australia and the Indo-Pacific region," Bryan O’Connor, Managing Director, Moog Australia said. "The facility is dedicated to the support of the defence and aerospace markets, further developing capabilities to design and manufacture mission critical defence solutions from Australia, focused on weaponisation and precision motion control."
“This new facility also enhances Moog Australia’s ability to scale within the Indo-Pacific region,” Jim Riedel, Defence Sector Group Vice President for Moog, said.
“This announcement stimulates investment within the Defence industry sector, creating jobs growth and offers businesses a chance to export overseas,” Air Commodore Damien Keddie, Director General Joint Strike Fighter Branch, said. “This expansion enables Moog to enhance its support across the land, air and sea domains.”
