BAE Systems Completes Acquisition Of Tenix Toll Defence Logistics
ADELAIDE, South Australia - BAE Systems has completed its acquisition from Tenix Pty Limited (“Tenix”) of 100% of Tenix Toll Defence Logistics Pty Limited (TTDL), formerly a joint venture company of Tenix and Toll Holdings Limited, for A$24 million in cash, after receiving all required approvals.

In June 2008 BAE Systems completed the acquisition of Tenix Defence. This acquisition significantly enhanced the depth and breadth of the company’s capabilities in Australia and made BAE Systems Australia the largest in-country supplier to the ADF.
