Gympie based, Nestlé, the world’s largest food and beverage company, opened their doors for a chance to review the robotics and digitalisation of the workplace which have revolutionized their processes.

Member for Nicklin Rob Skelton said the iconic Gympie business played host to a behind-the-scenes tour showcasing the new design and innovative technologies, processes and practices which are transforming the manufacturing sector.

“As part of the Palaszczuk Government’s COVID-19 Economic Recovery Plan, we’re working with our manufacturers to identify opportunities, embrace innovation, create a skilled workforce, and adopt world best practices,” Mr Skelton said.

“It was so exciting to see the practical application of the new technologies such as advanced robotics by one of our region’s biggest manufacturers."

“Right across Queensland, leading advanced manufacturers have opened their doors to other local firms to share the tactics and technologies which have transformed their business and made them more productive and internationally competitive,” he said.

Minister for Regional Development and Manufacturing, Glenn Butcher said Inside Advanced Manufacturing said Inside Advanced Manufacturing is celebrating some of our best in the sector right across Queensland and is part of the drive for it to become Australia’s leading manufacturing state.

“I commend our manufacturers for sharing their knowledge and expertise with others, as we accelerate the momentum of Queensland becoming Australia’s leading manufacturing state.”

“The information and insight they will share is invaluable for those manufacturers who are commencing their technological transformation and this initiative demonstrates the commitment the Queensland Government has to our manufacturers having the resources they need to grow locally and extend their reach globally,” Minister Butcher said.

Twenty leading Queensland manufacturers are welcoming fellow manufacturers into their facilities to showcase their advanced technology and share exactly how they adopted and adapted to Industry 4.0 process and practice.
