”Pacific Region of Significant Strategic Interest”
On 3 September, Vienna-based Schiebel announced the creation of Schiebel Pacific Pty Ltd in Shoalhaven, Australia (between Sydney and Canberra) to the Pacific region with a permanent and comprehensive programme, logistics and sales hub.
The company already has established defence contracts in the region and sees considerable further potential in Australia and the Pacific region at large. Schiebel also sees the new company as an essential step to supporting and contributing to local industry, in both civil and defence sectors, thereby bringing jobs and revenue to the region in the fast-growing robotics market.
“Establishing a permanent base in Australia, managed and run by Australians, is a logical next step for Schiebel as the Pacific region is of significant strategic interest to us,” observed Schiebel Group Chairman, Hans Georg Schiebel. “We already have a strong working relationship with customers in the area and are committed to growing our footprint, delivering outstanding support for our current contracts, providing end-to-end servicing to potential clients, and backing local value creation.”
