Boeing briefs industry at PACIFIC 2019
October 10, 2019
More than 80 Australian suppliers attended an industry briefing by Boeing Defence Australia at this year’s International Maritime Exposition, PACIFIC 2019 to hear about Boeing’s in-country capabilities and how to become part of the local supply chain.
The session was presented by Systems, Engineering, Integration and Test Director, Kathryn Burr and Supply Chain Director, Nick Gothard followed by one-on-one discussions between Boeing’s supply chain team and Australian small-to-medium enterprises (SMEs).
“PACIFIC 2019 offered an ideal opportunity for Boeing to engage with Australian suppliers face-to-face and introduce a number of initiatives we are implementing to gain a thorough understanding of Australian SME’s capability and, where possible, simplify the process of working with Boeing,” said Gothard.
Boeing is using the ICN Gateway to advertise for expressions of interest for work packages across its capabilities. Current opportunities include expressing interest to join the Boeing Rotorcraft Network - Australia which will provide sustainment and support services across Boeing’s rotorcraft programs in Australia.
