Thales' investment at its Australian Lithgow Arms facility continues with a $1.8 million honing machine added to the site's rifle production line.

The new equipment brings Thales’s investment to more than $30 million in plant and equipment at Lithgow Arms since 2006.

The facility is home to Thales’ work to develop and manufacture Australian Defence Force next-generation soldier weapons systems, including the F90 assault rifle.

Thales is investing in world class manufacturing capabilities that can be integrated with digital technologies, including 3D printing, advanced optical and targeting equipment and secure digitally networked systems.
