Australian Maritime Technologies - The Management Buyout of tkMSA

The management of thyssenkrupp Marine Systems Australia (tkMSA) are very pleased to advise the closing of a management buyout in relation to thyssenkrupp Marine Systems Australia. With immediate effect, the ownership of thyssenkrupp Marine Systems Australia has been transferred to its management team. The thyssenkrupp Marine Systems naval spare parts agency that had been managed by tkMSA has been transferred to now be managed by thyssenkrupp Industrial Solutions (Australia) Pty Ltd.

The company name has now changed to Australian Maritime Technologies Pty Ltd (AMT) which will be familiar to many in the Australian defence industry, as AMT is the name by which the company was previously known.

AMT was formed 30 years ago to provide a home for technology transferred to Australia as part of the ANZAC Frigate Project. Since then, AMT has continuously provided naval ship design and related engineering and project management services in Australia and internationally. AMTís depth of skills and breadth of experience is now available to the full range of Australian naval and related projects.

As an independent and wholly Australian owned business, AMT has a long and proud heritage of providing the highest quality professional support to naval and related projects. As it rediscovers its independence, AMT looks forward to expanding its role as a designer and adviser to the industry.

A full website is under development and will follow in due course.
