TTNA/Composites Autumn Briefing & Factory Tour in May
14
Apr '09
This joint industry briefing has been funded by the federal government's Enterprise Connect program and coincides with the NSW State Government's West Sydney Manufacturing Week.

This combined Composites Australia/TTNA industry briefing and factory tour is placed perfectly on the calendar during West Sydney Manufacturing Week when Australian manufacturing is in decline. It is also physically placed well in the western Sydney region which is populated with small and medium enterprises which are meeting ever-changing business restructures. The factory tour will demonstrate the innovative capabilities of the combined composites/technical textiles industries and the skills required to work on the factory floor of such a manufacturer.

Date: Thursday 21st May 2009
Time: Factory tour at 4pm; presentations from 5pm; drinks and networking from 6pm
Venue: Colan Australia - 6 Woods Close, Huntingwood, NSW, 2148 (Sydways Map Ref 250 B9)

Colan is an Australian-based, internationally recognised manufacturer of high quality engineered industrial textiles for use in composite reinforcement, thermal & insulation and safety & protective apparel. This is a rare opportunity to tour the plant and learn about Colan's processes and products!

Speakers:
Mr Grant Pearce – Managing Director, Exel Composites
In these tough economic times, what can a manufacturing company do to protect itself? What business strategies should you look at and what operational and personnel management decisions can help avert a crisis? Striking the right balance between safety and speculation depends on many factors. Some of these and how to evaluate what's best for you and your company will be discussed.

Shane Canavan - National Sales & Marketing Manager, Colan Australia
Colan Australia prides itself on being strong, innovative and adaptable. Learn how Colan can provide production to suit customer needs with prompt delivery. The capabilities and production processes Colan has to offer the Australia market will be presented.

Enterprise Connect
The Australian Government has committed $250 million over five years for the Enterprise Connect initiative. The program's manufacturing network supports Australian small and medium enterprises (SMEs) facing a rapidly changing business environment. Manufacturing SMEs need new skills, technologies and strategies to remain competitive, innovative and efficient.
