Australian cabling company Cablex and Australian Aerospace have signed a contract for Cablex to provide skilled labour to Australian Aerospace’s MRH 90 helicopter production facility at Brisbane Airport.
The agreement will see at least nine Cablex AMEs installing electrical harnesses on Australian Army and Navy MRH 90s alongside their Australian Aerospace colleagues.
“The strong relationship we have developed with Cablex is a reflection of Australian Aerospace’s commitment to support skills development and small to medium enterprises, while creating an industrial footprint in the country,” said Dr Jens Goennemann, CEO of Australian Aerospace. The parties are hoping to extend Cablex’s work to participate in the in-service support of all MRH 90s.
The ADF has ordered 46 MRH 90s for the Army and Navy, about six of which have been delivered to date and all but four of which will be built at Brisbane.
