SMEs and the Defence Supply Chain

25 Jun 2019 8:30am

In 2018 SEMMA ran an event aimed at creating awareness of defence opportunities for manufacturers, attracting over 200 attendees and successfully inspiring some of our members to explore supplying defence and providing the opportunity to network with prime contractors.

SEMMA is collaborating again with member Robert Weller & Associates for this year’s defence event, specifically aimed at SME’s who are seeking to enter or already participate in the defence supply chain.

Hear from businesses big and small who have successfully navigated the supply chain, as well as notable industry organisations poised to support SME’s each step of the way.
