WFEL welcomed Brigadier Ed Smeaton, the Director General Land Manoeuvre Systems of the Australian Department of Defence, to their defence manufacturing facilities.

Brigadier Smeaton’s organisation, which is part of the Capability Acquisition and Sustainment Group, is responsible for the acquisition and through-life support of a wide range of land-based capabilities required by the Australian Defence Force (ADF), including bridging.

The Brigadier was shown around WFEL’s production facility, which is currently supplying a number of its Dry Support Bridges (DSB) and Medium Girder Bridges (MGB) to the ADF under the Land 155 Phase 1 Enhanced Gap Crossing Capability project.

As a long-standing user of WFEL’s MGB bridges since the 1970’s, the ADF has recently taken delivery of their first new sets of WFEL’s rapidly-deployable bridging systems, and the Brigadier was keen to observe the technical operations behind the manufacture of these bridges.

Brigadier Smeaton, said: “My visit today was extremely informative and your team were both passionate and engaging. It was a particularly good opportunity to understand the design and complexity that goes into the manufacturing of your bridging products.  As a customer and user, it was reassuring to see the level of testing and quality assurance completed at each stage in the process.”
