Manufacturing competitiveness embraces innovation, cutting edge technology, automation, new equipment design, superior machining processes, resource optimisation and a whole gamut of smart and value added solutions. Companies are constantly challenged in all spheres of their business in order to reduce costs through productivity improvement measures, sustain growth and remain competitive.
