Manufacturing is not dead!

CPT's familiarity with Lean Manufacturing, TQM, Just in Time and all those other proprietary manufacturing and maintenance philosophies was first established interpreting for a consultant from JIPM back in the 90s. Under his guidance Dandenong based Nissan Casting became the first recipient of the TPM Excellence Award in the Southern Hemisphere.

The surprising thing is that while manufacturers - including volt-hungry aluminium smelters - seem to be deserting Australia, Nissan Casting has not just weathered the storm, but is rapidly expanding to supply new projects such as the Nissan Leaf.
