Welcome to Quickstep

Quickstep is an Australian listed company ASX:QHL at the forefront of advanced composites manufacturing and technology development.

Quickstep is the largest independent aerospace-grade advanced composite manufacturer in Australia. We manufacture using both traditional autoclave and leading edge out-of-autoclave production technologies for aerospace and automotive. Alongside our manufacturing headquarters at Bankstown Aerodrome - New South Wales, Quickstep also has a manufacturing and R&D facility at Deakin University, Waurn Ponds, Geelong in Victoria and a Quickstep Process development facility in Europe.

We are currently partnering with some of the world’s largest aerospace/defence organisations, including the US Department of Defense, Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, Airbus, Thales, BAE and Ford.

We welcome enquiries from companies seeking advanced composites manufacturing solutions - including our patented out-of-autoclave Quickstep Process for aerospace and automotive as well as aerospace and defence build-to-specification or build-to-print contracts.

Quickstep has been participating in the AVALON Air Show (AVALON 2017) for years, either as a registered exhibitor or trade visitor.

This year was a little different; we were invited by Lockheed Martin to be part of their F-35 Expo tent, to display some of the parts that we manufacture for the F-35.  The F-35 Expo tent  included other JSF Industry Partners; HTA, Levett Engineering, Marand had an engine on display, BAE, RUAG, AW Bell, Ferra, Lovitt Technologies, TAE, Varley and Rockwell Collins.

Quickstep were honoured to spend time to LtGen Chris Bogdan the Program Executive Officer for the F-35 Lightning II Joint Program Office in Arlington, VA, as well as numerous other dignataries and stakeholders including the Prime Minster of Australia Malcolm Turnbull and the Minister for Defence, Senator the Honourable Marise Payne, both who showed great interest in Quickstep.

Deakin University also asked us to partner with them to display our new technology.

On the Deakin stand we displayed a number of the demonstrator parts being developed at our Waurn Ponds facility, including a carbon fibre front fender which we are working on for a European luxury car-maker, a composite seat back that we recently received a $1.45m grant to develop further, and the carbon fibre air intake duct that we produced at Waurn Ponds for the Ford XR6 Sprint performance vehicle.  Deakin produced and handed out to visitors a case study of our air intake duct project with Ford which you can see here.
