Earlier this year, Axalta Coating Systems’ head office in Sydney, had the opportunity to host Rheinmetall Defence Australia, to learn more about the company’s plans to establish a national military vehicle industry in Australia that included a hands-on demonstration of their Boxer CRV.
Axalta’s customers plus a network of local suppliers were briefed on the importance of establishing strong military business partnerships in Australia and the opportunities it presents to the economy, local businesses, manufacturing and job growth.
Rheinmetall also delivered the Boxer Combat Reconnaissance Vehicle (Boxer CRV) to Axalta’s Riverstone facility, acknowledging the three-year partnership between both companies. This journey began with Axalta providing Rheinmetall MAN Military Vehicles Australia (RMMVA) coating products for Australian military logistic vehicles being produced as part of the Australian government’s LAND 121 Phase 3B Defence Programme. Rheinmetall is one of the world’s leading suppliers of defence technology, including wheeled and tracked military vehicles, weapons, ammunition, simulation solutions, command and control technology, force protection systems and sensors.
