Austal Philippines commenced operations in February 2012 as part of a competitive strategy by Austal to regionalize its manufacturing base for commercial vessels. The shipyard began with 30 employees and now boasts a workforce of over 300.

The Austal Philippines facility was acquired in November 2011 and is established in Balamban, Cebu in the Philippines.

As Austal’s global centre for commercial vessel design, development and construction, Austal Philippines is strategically positioned to cater to global market demands for high speed ferries, work boats, fast crew transfer boats and other commercial vessels; as well as defence vessels such as patrol boats and theatre support vessels.

In November 2014, the Austal Philippines facility was accredited with the ISO 9001:2008 Quality Assurance certification applicable to the Quality Management System for design and manufacture of aluminium commercial vessels and components.
