Productivity Improvers were again featured in the February / March edition of AMT Magaine for the second year running. 

Australian Manufacturing Technology magazine is a bi-monthly magazine published by AMTIL and distributed to over 7000 people nationally.

It is a magazine by the industry, for the industry, with Tasmania highlighted under the 'State Spotlight' for this edition and we thank them for their interest in the SWE.   To read the full edition go to www.amtil.com.au/AMT-Magazine 

Productivity Improvers manage and run the operation of the Elphinstone SWE which requires 17 students and 5 facilitators to operate, and are keen to see more industry and Government departments using it to assist their staff to ‘See Waste’
Since the offical opening in March 2017 almost 400 participants from Tasmanian and mainland businesses including Hydro Tasmania, local government, Elphinstone Group businesses, and the Hobart based Nekon Group’s food speciality companies have used this training facility.

“Our goal for 2018 is to have a class of 17 students from across the Country, and from every sector, going through the SWE each week.” says Director Michael Bonney. “It’s going to be a big ask of the team leaders and administrators but increasing the volume of people exposed to Lean principals in this fabulous facility, is the only way to achieve the productivity that is needed to be globally competitive."
