The DTC is a national member-based organisation that supports the Australian Defence industry to develop sovereign capability and increase its overall competitiveness among international Defence markets.
“Downer is pleased to join the ranks of the DTC’s Prime Supporters,” Downer’s Chief Operating Officer, Australian Operations, Sergio Cinerari, said.
“This is an exciting time for the defence industry. Australia has a very capable small-to-medium enterprise (SME) base that is keen to contribute their expertise to support the Australian Defence Force, and Downer is determined to play our part to assist them.
“Downer has been supporting Defence for the past 80 years and has worked with many SMEs during this time. We do this in a number of ways: we partner with them directly, as we are currently doing on the Muskito project; we directly place them into Defence projects, as we do through our Downer Defence Systems business and the Team Downer Major Service Provider consortium; and we support defence industry bodies such as the DTC and the Australian Industry Defence Network (AIDN).”
DTC members include prime defence contractors, small-to-medium enterprises, academic institutions and professional service providers that are involved in supplying and supporting Defence capability. The DTC engages in advocacy, training, marketing, communication and teaming.
