Babcock – the Aerospace, Defence and Security company – is preparing to showcase the breadth and depth of its in-service naval support at MADEX 2021 – 9-12 June, Republic of Korea. Babcock continues to enhance its market presence with its facility in the large port city of Busan. Babcock will exhibit in Hall 1, stand F201. BEXCO Exhibition Center, Busan Korea.
The show is co-hosted by the Republic of Korea Navy, Busan Metropolitan City and the Korea International Trade Association offering attendees the opportunity to gain insights about naval-related products and technologies.
Babcock is employing local talent, building local partnerships and growing its supply chain in South Korea through the development of its assembly and MRO facility in Busan, where the company is a supplier for the ROKN Jangbogo-III submarine programme. Babcock’s seven-year contract supports the submarine programme until 2024.
MADEX 2021 provides the perfect platform for Babcock to engage with international delegates about its long-standing experience and innovation in equipment supply, platform design and build, training, consultancy services, naval facility management and in service support.
As well as exhibiting, Babcock delegates will also present across a number of topics at the conference and exhibition. This will include Digital Transformation and the Digitally Enabled Ship – where Neil Young, Engineering and Technology Director of Babcock’s Marine Sector will outline Babcock’s integration of digital technologies into naval shipbuilding and transforming data into decision making.
Babcock will also join UK Industry and the Department for International Trade as part of a UK Pavilion at the show.

“Establishing our Busan base provides us with great access and insight into the South Korean market and the wider region. Our team will be available on-stand to discuss our extensive range of support capability for vessels both above and below the waterline. We look forward to meeting delegates at the show.”
