VEEM Limited (ASX: VEE) (‘VEEM’ or ‘the Company’), is pleased to announce that it has received orders for approximately $9 million from the Australian Submarine Corporation (ASC) for certain specialised parts as part of the maintenance program for the Collins class submarines.
Work will commence immediately at VEEM’s specialised engineering facility in Canning Vale, Western Australia, with deliveries expected to occur over 15 months from July 2020.
This order follows a long history of work successfully completed by VEEM for the ASC and highlights the Company’s ability to consistently deliver highly-specialised engineering that meets the stringent standards required for defence contracts.
VEEM Managing Director, Mr Mark Miocevich, commented: “The new contract with ASC is further demonstration of our reputation for precision engineering to the exacting defence standards. This work will positively impact our profitability in the current and next financial years.
