The sky's the limit when it comes to aerospace, and ASX-listed Quickstep taking that literally. I spoke with Mark Burgess, MD and CEO, about the stellar growth the company has had in recent years, growing from a staff of 12 to 265 just on one manufacturing site alone.
The company has diversified from being primarily focused on the international military market and now includes commercial transport, including sophisticated commercial drones.
We discussed the hard recruitment and employment decisions Mark had to make to turn the company around when he took the helm some six years ago.
It was a fascinating interview that will leave you in no doubt that Australia is at the leading edge of this important industry.
