DefendTex to build propellants and explosives facility at Dutson, Victoria

DefendTex is in the process of finalising a formal agreement with Defence to build a manufacturing and testing facility for propellants and explosives at the former Dutson Bombing Range.

Once approved, the site will become the base for DefendTex’s resonance acoustic mixing facility to support the development of rocket motors. It is expected to create 25 construction jobs initially, and 60 ongoing roles once the company moves to full production.
