VICTORIAN governor Linda Dessau has seen the high-tech sights of two of Bendigo’s largest employers.

Ms Dessau toured the two major defence manufacturers in Bendigo, Thales and Australian Defence Apparel, this week.

Along with husband Anthony Howard QC, Ms Dessau took the time to explore the North Bendigo Thales factory that has produced the Bushmaster and now Hawkei armoured vehicles.

The second stop on her journey through town was Australian Defence Apparel, meeting with employees on her tour of the facility.

Ms Dessau was also in town to participate in a discussion with community entrepreneurs and small business owners on how to make regional businesses more successful.

She also planned to meet with the mayor and councillors and host a reception for the community.
