Coulson Group CEO Wayne Coulson said the company continues to invest in Australia, where it operated for more than 19 years.
In a further signal of its intention to remain in Australia, Coulson Aviation has moved its Australian headquarters from Melbourne to Bankstown. The move means Coulson can leave the Sikorsky S-61 firebombing helicopter fleet in Australia year-round to support operational needs as they arise.
“We are pleased to be expanding our partnership with RFS, providing them with our long history of operational excellence and a safety-first focus,” Wayne Coulson said.
Foster Coulson added: “Coulson Aviation has more than 36 years in aerial fire suppression across the globe, and we are proud to continue supporting NSW RFS with essential services during bushfire seasons.
“Australia had a fierce fire season this past summer and as New South Wales marks the end of the most devastating bushfire season in this State’s history, our teams are committed to continue to protect community members.”
