Queensland and India sign on for future technologies

Ferra Engineering is set to strengthen its relationship with Dynamatic Technologies, signing a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) which will see the two companies enhance scale and capabilities in strategic aerospace manufacturing.

Dynamatic Technologies is a global contributor to the aerospace industry and has strong links with defence and aerospace Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) in India and around the world.

Queensland Treasurer and Minister for Trade and Investment, Cameron Dick said expanding Ferra’s capabilites in India fortifies the company’s manufacturing base in support of Australian programs which are delivered from their homebase in Queensland.

The Minister was present to witness the MoU signing in Ferra’s Bengalaru operations during his India Trade Mission.

Mr Dick recently visited Ferra’s headquarters in Brisbane to inspect the company’s progress manufacturing components for Boeing’s autonomous MQ-28A Ghost Bat aircraft.

“I commend Ferra for securing partnerships with prestigious customers in India like Dynamatic Technologies,” he said.

“Partnerships with global defence giants like Boeing and Dynamatic Technologies strengthen Queensland’s advanced manufacturing capabilities.

“Supporting companies like Ferra further diversifies Queensland’s economy and builds on our existing skills base.”

Group Chief Executive Ferra Engineering Australia, David Rogers said the support of the Queensland Government was helping to further boost defence manufacturing capabilities for a range of upcoming projects.

“Succeeding in these opportunities allows for strengthening of our industrial base within our Indian subsidiary and expanding out to the wider Ferra Group.”

“With its increased manufacturing capability, in-house engineering services and assembly setup, Ferra India is now equipped to support more end-to-end services to its global customers.

“Trade and Investment Queensland relationship with Ferra is well established having assisted the company to achieve several export outcomes in markets like the UK,” Mr Rogers said.

Ferra was founded in 1992 with its headquarters in Brisbane and offices in the United States and India. Ferra India was established in 2011 to build a strategic presence in Asia.

Ferra specialises in the design, manufacture, and maintenance of complex electromechanical subsystems and structures primarily for defence, commercial and military aviation, and other industries.
