Why AFL?

Our capabilities in Defence are built on many years of experience in understanding the requirements of key Defence projects across all services and headquarters operations.
Innovative product development is the core of our business. We constantly seek to improve and enhance our product range and never stop looking for ways to give our customers better solutions.

We operate our own high tech manufacturing facility in Melbourne. This means we can respond quickly to our customer needs and keep lead times to a minimum. More than two decades of experience and peerless technical knowledge means we get the job done right – on time, the first time.
