Our work in Defence

We have developed a range of solutions for use in the defence segment and have worked closely with prime contractors, other SMEs and directly with the Commonwealth of Australia on a range of projects.

We have worked on AIR5428, LAND121 and LAND400. Our solutions include maintenance and access platforms for the Bushmaster, Hawkei, Abrams M1A1 tank and Medium/Heavy Vehicles. In the air space, we’ve developed maintenance stands and other Ground Support Equipment for the Pilatus PC-9 and PC-21.

No Bolt has joined with ecogroup to expand our combined offering.  Like No Bolt, Ecogroup is an Australian owned SME based in Dandenong South, Victoria.  By combining our offering and expertise, we are better positioned to service a broader range of projects.
