  • Supply chain management, warehousing and delivery
  • Training technology and infrastructure

Canada’s leading submarine experts

Earning trust in delivering on Canada's largest and most complex in-service support program
Unparalleled naval in-service support expertise
A flexible process- and platform-agnostic approach
A network of over 400 specialist suppliers, a large majority of whom are Canadian

How we do it

The complexity and critical nature of a submarine and its systems requires an approach that is highly collaborative. We work closely with our partners, and with our customers and stakeholders in the Royal Canadian Navy, the Department of National Defence, and Public Services & Procurement Canada to understand and adapt to Canada’s platform and capability needs and the Class program schedule and cost constraints.

An approach that makes Babcock and our customers better

Together, we are delivering, and together we are learning, improving, and growing a truly Canadian, world class submarine experience and capability.
