The Association of British Columbia Marine Industries (ABCMI) is pleased to announce that it will be hosting the AJISS West Coast Supplier Engagement Day in partnership with Thales Canada. Thales Canada will be joined by representatives from the Royal Canadian Navy (RCN) and the Department of National Defence (DND) in presenting and speaking on the in-service support contract for the Arctic Offshore Patrol Ship (AOPS) and the Joint Support Ship (JSS) – the contract known collectively as AJISS. A number of these new vessels will be based and operate on Canada’s west coast and will be supported by Thales Canada and the AJISS contract.
The intent of the AJISS West Coast Supplier Engagement Day is not only to inform industry and other stakeholders on the AJISS contract but also to start identifying suppliers and build a supply chain that will enable Thales Canada to carry out the activities of the AJISS contract on Canada’s west coast. If you are a business that sees your products and services being of relevance to supporting these new RCN vessels, and you want to ensure that Thales Canada knows about your business as it prepares for the conduct of its activities in AJISS, then be sure to take part in this event! The AJISS West Coast Supplier Engagement Day is the first important step in establishing your contact and communications to the AJISS Prime Contractor and creating a significant business opportunity for your company. A don’t miss event!
