The long-term opportunities coming out of the AUKUS agreement will be many and fruitful, Axiom Precision general manager Craig Maynard, said.
The challenge for local companies will be identifying and capitalising on the short and medium-term opportunities and using those to pave the way for the boom time that’s coming.
He said the more immediate benefits for Axiom, which makes everything from parts for the F-35 aircraft to weapons components, might not come from subs but from related military opportunities such as missiles.
And once the contracts start to land, he said, it will be very good news for young South Australians looking for work.
“We have an apprentice training program in-house where we employ nine apprentices at the moment,” he said. “We’re aiming to get that up to 20 … on the back of defence projects.’’
