Bombardier (TSX:BBD.A) is growing its presence in The Land Down Under with a new Bombardier Defense office in Adelaide, Australia.

The expansion into the country’s fifth-most populous city will allow the company to offer an “enhanced level of service to its special mission customers in this important market,” according to Tuesday’s news release, including easier access to team members and the company’s Challenger and Global aircraft, which can be produced to suit civilian, military and hybrid missions.

Bombardier Defense provides a suite of specialized aircraft platforms backed by decades of experience working with more than 160 special mission operators and mission systems integrators. The subsidiary is already active in Australia with an in-service fleet of medical evacuation and search and rescue aircraft.

In addition to the new office, parent company Bombardier’s Asia-Pacific presence includes its Melbourne service centre opened in September 2022, a customer response centre in Singapore, a parts depot in Hong Kong and a service centre in Tianjin, China.
