CAE Expands Australian Facility (Nov. 26)

MONTREAL --- CAE’s Military Simulation and Training operation in Australia has moved to new facilities to support the company’s growing business in Australia.

The new Australian headquarters for CAE, located at Slough Business Park in Sydney, was officially opened this week in ceremonies attended by Australian Defence Minister Robert Hill and Donald W. Campbell, CAE’s group president for military simulation and training.

“CAE established a defence simulation business in Australia 10 years ago and considers Australia one of its most important markets,” said Alan Johnson, general manager of CAE’s military simulation and training operation in Australia. “We have been focused on delivering on-time and on-budget to the Australian Defence Forces and expect this good performance will continue to provide us with growth opportunities in Australia and the region.”

CAE currently has more than 80 employees in Australia. Last year, the company signed a long-term agreement to provide flight training support services for all three armed services of the Australian Defence Force (ADF).

CAE is a leading provider of simulation and modelling technologies and integrated training services for commercial and business aviation, and defence customers worldwide. The company has annual revenues of approximately C$1 billion, with operations and training facilities in 17 countries on five continents.
