Together Ahead in Australasia Since its acquisition of Melbourne-headquartered company Rosebank Engineering in late 2012 and the subsequent evolution to RUAG Australia, Swiss technology group RUAG has seen a doubling of its revenue in Australia and now aspires to further local success by strengthening its aviation MRO and manufacturing businesses through the further development of strategic partnerships, realisation of secured opportunities and assured best value offerings to customers.
Whilst aviation remains RUAG's core in Australia, RUAG has many additional technologies, capabilities and services that could benefit the Australian customer, especially in support of Defence needs, and which would complement existing Australian industry capability and provide a further basis for strategic partnerships.
RUAG is strongly committed to ongoing success in Australia and the near region. To this end, a change to local organisation has been effected to deliver the necessary focus and concentration of effort to realise RUAG’s aspirations.
John Teager is appointed to a new position of VP Strategic Partnerships & Growth - Australasia and will continue to be RUAG’s principal representative in Australia. Terry Miles, currently Head of Quality and Business Services, is appointed as General Manager Operations Australia and will lead RUAG’s production capabilities across Australia to ensure ongoing delivery of high value, high quality and cost effective products and services in line with the needs of a dynamic and evolving customer base.
