ASC Pty Ltd
ASC is Australia’s sovereign submarine company, as the maintainer and design authority for the Collins Class submarine fleet, and Australia’s only builder of complex steel-hulled warships, as the shipbuilder for the Air Warfare Destroyer program.
ASC is Australia’s sovereign naval shipbuilding and submarine platform company.
ASC is critical to Australia’s most potent naval deterrents, the Collins Class submarine fleet and the Hobart Class Air Warfare Destroyers.
With 30 years of experience and expertise among our 2500 personnel across three shipyards in South Australia and Western Australia, ASC plays a significant role in supporting Australia’s sovereign shipbuilding and submarine endeavours.
ASC built and now sustains the Royal Australian Navy’s (RAN’s) Collins Class submarine fleet, providing maintenance, upgrades and enhancements to ensure the fleet remains regionally superior. ASC achieved international benchmark performance in submarine maintenance in 2017, as an active partner in the Australian Submarine Enterprise, which also includes the RAN, Defence Department and Raytheon Australia (combat system integrator).
As Australia’s only sovereign submarine platform capability, ASC supports the Defence Department and defence industry in growing Australia’s future submarine capability.
ASC Shipbuilding is Australia’s only builder of major steel-hulled warships, the Air Warfare Destroyers (AWD), the first of which, Hobart¸ was delivered by the AWD Alliance to the Defence Department in June 2017. ASC Shipbuilding has proposed shipbuilding solutions, with its partners, for the Australian Government’s Offshore Patrol Vessel (SEA1180) and Future Frigate (SEA5000) programs, among other future business opportunities.
ASC actively fosters diversity and inclusion in the workplace and is a leading Australian employer of engineers, naval architects, project managers, CAD technicians and expert tradespeople. It’s annual apprentice and graduate intakes are highly competitive.
