Tasmanian Defence supplier CBG Systems and Spanish group Ghenova touched down in the South Australian Defence and Space Landing Pad at Lot Fourteen earlier this year, strengthening the state’s defence industry capability and bringing a promise to invest in economic and employment growth.
Operating out of Hobart for the past 45 years, advanced manufacturing company CBG Systems offers three capabilities: supplying and installing fire, thermal and acoustic marine insulation; specialist antenna systems; and mobile camouflage system solutions – thermal, infrared reduction camouflage for defence assets including army vehicles. The company has clients across Australia, Europe and the US, and now has a new base in Adelaide.

“With the momentum the defence industry is gaining in Australia and the world, it is beneficial for CBG Systems and our customers to be closer to each other,” says Javier Herbon, CBG Systems managing director. “We identified that South Australia is the Defence State, and the majority of our Australian Defence customers have offices or are based in South Australia.”
