jbcdv foundation client SAGE has joined forces with a leading German engineering firm to help make Australian manufacturers more globally competitive, delivering bankable intelligence.
SAGE and Project Engineering have formed Prozess – a joint venture to generate “bankable process improvements” for manufacturers across industry sectors including mining, fmcg, building materials, food and beverage, agriculture processing.
jbcdv was asked to create a high impact presentation using Apple Keynote software to heighten the visual impact of the launch.
We worked closely with Rachael Oates, Communication and Marketing Officer, SAGE CEO Andrew Downs and Project Engineering’s Managing Director Eduard Schroeder on a tight timeline.
Prozess joint Director Garry Williams said the company met a market need for a more forensic approach to manufacturing process optimisation.
“The market is already flooded with so-called solution providers,” Mr Williams said.
“Providing a solution to a client brief is just one part of the puzzle. To truly add value to a business you must first identify the core problem.
In many cases it’s the problem that the client is unaware of that is really restricting their growth or competitiveness.”
Before its official market launch this month, Prozess has already worked alongside some of the nation’s best known companies across mining, building materials, food & beverage, agriculture processing and automotive.
They include Adelaide Brighton Cement, SMR, Drake Foodmarkets, Golden North, Balco and SPC.
Prozess joint Director Eduard Schroeder said the firm was already generating returns of investment for manufacturers measured in months not years.
“In the current business climate manufacturers are chasing productivity improvements like never before,” Mr Schroeder said.
“Remaining globally competitive requires a sharper focus on efficiency and effectiveness – not just on the production line but across the whole business.
“It comes down to continually asking why and thinking beyond the conveyor belt to the ultimate marketplace of the manufacturer.
The key is to deliver bankable process improvement in line with the current market and in a sustainable way,” he said.
As part of the joint venture, Prozess has developed a network of collaboration partners with experience and expertise across all areas of manufacturing.
“We bring a global approach to the table uniting German quality and precision with Australian entrepreneurial spirit and experience while our approach is based on the proven Japanese methodology of lean manufacturing,” Mr Williams said.
