Austal has been awarded the 2008 Advanced Manufacturer of the Year at the inaugural AMTIL Advanced Manufacturing Awards, held in recently.

The Advanced Manufacturing Awards recognize Australian companies that incorporate leading edge practices, technologies and organizational cultures to sustain global competitiveness in manufacturing industries.

Having demonstrated excellence in international trade and export, innovation and skills, training and staff development, AMTIL Chief Executive Officer Shane Infanti said Austal was a deserving winner of the award.

 

Over the past two years Austal has introduced Advanced Shipbuilding (ASB) techniques into its four Australian shipyards, improving production efficiency, energy consumption and creating an improved working environment for Austal’s 1500-strong local workforce.

Austal also incorporates the latest in advanced manufacturing technology, such as its state-of-the-art routers which cut all the shipbuilder’s aluminum plate and achieve a cutting distance of more than 20km per week and 1000 tons per year.
