Company Overview

Established in 1989, PMB Defence is a global leader in naval energy storage systems consistently delivering the highest quality products with innovative manufacturing techniques.

We know that deep below the surface, just minutes of additional battery life can be the difference between mission success and failure. That’s why we design and build our submarine battery systems to the highest possible standard. Understanding the submarine domain and our customer needs through close collaboration is key to our success.

PMB’s new state of the art production facility has been designed from the ground up to manufacture the highest quality Main Storage Battery (MSB) systems and conduct leading-edge research and development. These new facilities represent a significant investment in submarine battery capability and capacity that will enable the next generation of systems to provide superior systems for our customers.

Products and Services

PMB provides design and manufacturing services for several leading navies. Optimised battery management, cell top ancillaries and monitoring maximise performance and reduce maintenance time and effort. Our objective is to provide superior battery performance under actual operating conditions – even small differences can be the difference between mission success and failure. The uniquely challenging Australian operating environment has helped provide PMB with a broad knowledge-base from which to design, manufacture and support needs of our customers.

PMB manufactures Lead-Acid systems for the Australian and multiple foreign navies. This reliable, well understood technology continues to develop through PMB design enhancements, manufacturing quality initiatives and various management and maintenance improvements.

PMB is engaged in developing next generation systems based on lithium-ion and Nickel-Zinc cell technologies for international customers over many years.


PMB Defence aims to ensure quality, safety, health and environmental (QSHE) compliant behaviour in its activities, whilst satisfying the needs of our Customers, our workforce and other stakeholders.

PMB Defence operates and maintains an Integrated Management System (IMS) in the areas of Quality, Environment and WHS. These systems are certified to ISO9001, ISO14001 and AS4801 respectively, through the renowned certification body SAI Global.

The IMS framework provides assurance to our clients that product is made to the highest level of quality, with the safest of work practices, whilst ensuring compliance with all aspects of environmental legislation.
