Australian advanced manufacturer Corvus Technology Solutions (CTS) has appointed Nick Williams as general manager as the business moves into its next stage of development.

Williams has an extensive leadership experience across aerospace, electronics, power generation, aviation, and venture capital industries, Corvus stated in a press release.

He also possesses a diverse skill set encompassing strategic planning, profit and loss management, business development, complex project management, process engineering, contract negotiation and international sales.

The Melbourne-based manufacturer said Williams’ addition to the team will be a key step in the ongoing partnership with Hanwha Defense Australia (HDA), which is one of the two final bidders on the Australian Government’s Land 400 Phase 3 contract to build Infantry Fighting Vehicles.

Martin Ripple, CTS CEO, noted  Williams’ proven track record of driving successful growth strategies in the engineering and technology sectors, notably within the Australian Defence Industry, will be a key driver in the company’s next phase of growth.

“We are delighted to have someone of Nick’s calibre join the team. His leadership skills and industry expertise will be invaluable as we propel Corvus to new heights,” Ripple said.

CTS said his appointment comes at a crucial time for the Australian manufacturing industry, with the federal government pledging $15 billion to the National Reconstruction Fund (NRF), one of the most significant investments in the sector’s history.

Mr Williams has already hit the ground running and sees the government’s commitment, coupled with the recently announced, and long-awaited Strategic Defence Review (SDR), as an important step forward for the industry.

Commenting on the appointment, Williams said he is honoured to assume the general manager post at Corvus, adding that he looks forward to teaming up with customers, the government, and industry stakeholders.

“The Australian manufacturing industry is a vital component of our nation’s economy, generating substantial revenue and supporting thousands of jobs,” he said.

Corvus is an Australian-owned and run company that specialises in manufacturing high-quality precision-made products, with nearly five decades of expertise in original equipment manufacturing and research solutions.
