As Australasia’s premier warship sustainment company, and a key participant in Australia’s submarine capability enterprise, Babcock‘s strategy is focused on boosting national capacity and resilience through a comprehensive, sustainable approach to sovereign maritime capability – in collective collaboration with its partners in government and industry.

Babcock’s investment in the acquisition of the Naval Ship Management (NSM) business reinforces Babcock’s commitment to supporting regional maritime security by further strengthening Babcock’s support to the maritime capability of the Australian Defence Force.

NSM’s responsibility as the Asset Class Prime Contractor for the Royal Australian Navy’s (RAN) largest vessels – the Landing Helicopter Dock ships HMAS Adelaide and Canberra – as well as its position in the Warship Asset Management Agreement (WAMA) – the alliance which maintains and upgrades the ANZAC Class Frigates for the RAN – means that NSM is a major player in sustaining Australia’s maritime security.

 “Plans for further growth in our region are centred on Babcock’s commitment to continuing the strengthening of the breadth of our maritime support capabilities in Australia, New Zealand and the broader Asia-Pacific region, and further investing in the trusted partnerships we have with our customers and suppliers,” says David Ruff, Babcock Australasia CEO.
