Trusted, innovative and collaborative, Babcock Australasia is continuing its growth as a defence, aviation and critical services company, providing agile, reliable and responsive end-to-end solutions for customers throughout Australia and New Zealand.
Employing more than 1,300 talented people across the region, Babcock brings extensive experience in asset acquisition, management and sustainment to Australia’s emergency services sector.
Babcock is the trusted manager of critical and complex asset fleets to the emergency services and the military across the globe, drawing on a global pedigree that has worked in partnership with customers for more than a century.
Babcock Australasia’s Program Manager – Asset Management, Peter Flowers, said Babcock has a well-defined, agile approach to asset management.
‘Babcock partners with customers to provide high-quality, dependable servicing and maintenance of fleet and critical assets,’ Mr Flowers said. ‘Babcock provides asset management services for more than 110 emergency services vehicles, most of which are fitted with specialist hydraulic equipment that require mandated servicing and maintenance.
‘Our proven systems and experienced engineering team are capable of developing bespoke maintenance strategies that ensure these critical assets are operational when required.
‘We optimise processes to deliver efficiencies and cost savings without compromising performance or safety, enabling our customers to continue protecting the Australian public.’
Central to Babcock’s methodology is a commitment to remaining technology agnostic, meaning that platforms are chosen in accordance with rigorous evaluation processes that always put the customer and final user’s needs first.
This distinguishes Babcock’s approach from Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) who are necessarily tied to the selection of their own products, lacking freedom and flexibility.
Babcock’s approach to asset management generates cost-effectiveness, increased availability and ultimately value for money. The company works extensively with emergency services organisations to manage their complex combination of assets, support equipment and training needs.
Babcock’s Managing Director – Aviation & Critical Services, Darren Moncrieff, said across Australia Babcock holds more than 30 years’ experience providing emergency and mission-critical services for a diverse range of clients.
‘Emergency services and government agencies trust us to provide the hardware, technical know-how and personnel to support critical operations which save lives and keep the nation secure,’ Mr Moncrieff said. ‘We have a fleet of ambulance-configured helicopters, supporting emergency medical situations in rural and remote regions, where it is difficult to use other means of transport. These include traffic accidents, remote aeromedical evacuation, rescues and emergency transport between hospitals. Babcock is trusted by government, commercial and not-for profit customers to deliver these critical services.
‘We continue to focus on customer outcomes, leveraging best practice from our local supply chain partners, combined with our own evolved processes, to create value through tailored solutions and sustainable client relationships.’
