Australian Suppliers Sought for Defence Tender

12th July 2019

The FKG Group is committed to helping grow and support the communities in which it operates. Sourcing local suppliers and subcontractors is integral to this process and the company is currently seeking Australian suppliers for a key Defence tender.

The tender, Australian Defence Force LND 08120PH1 Engineer Support Platforms Tender, seeks to provide a replacement capability for the Australian Defence Force’s earth moving and material handling equipment (MHE) engineer support platforms.

Cranes, excavators, front-end loaders and tractors are among the platforms sought for tasks in Australia and on deployment, including airfield and port construction and repair, humanitarian assistance and disaster relief.

FKG Group Tender Lead, Simon Gardner, said Australian capability and content was key to the tender.

“This is a major project operating out of Toowoomba and Brisbane and what we’re particularly seeking is local suppliers and contractors with the necessary capabilities,” he said.

“The FKG Group is dedicated to supporting local industry and we are keen to ensure maximum Australian involvement.”

The project is expected to commence in July 2020 for a six-year contract period and submissions to the FKG Group from local suppliers and subcontractors will close Friday, 19th July 2019.
