Operational excellence for manufacturing professionals

Central to the vision of the Geelong Manufacturing Council is the promotion of a favourable operating environment for manufacturing in Geelong. This is done by encouraging operational excellence.

At the Geelong Manufacturing Council, we see operational excellence as a philosophy in the workplace where problem-solving, teamwork and leadership results in ongoing improvement in an organisation. The process involves focusing on the customers’ needs, keeping the employees positive and empowered, and continually improving the current activities in the workplace.

The Geelong Manufacturing Council ensure that our members are exposed to programs that can help them and their organisation achieve best practice. In programs such as Best Practice Benchmarking, a range of tools and methodologies are presented to help companies pursue best practice. Australian and international keynote speakers and experts are engaged to present to local industry members on topics such as improving manufacturing plant performance, reducing waste in the process and demonstration of a range of tools which may be used to measure and improve performance.

Improve your manufacturing business and become involved in promoting the region with the Geelong Manufacturing Council, by attending events, becoming a member, sponsor, or developing your skills through our various programs.
