Ford Australia world leaders

Congrats to Ford Australia for your efforts! Well Done.

Ford Australia has received recognition for operating leading-edge plants in the Ford world. Ford Broadmeadows assembly operations, Geelong Stamping and Geelong Powertrain have been rated in the top four plants for manufacturing excellence in the Ford world with only Valencia Engine Plant rating higher. Ford Broadmeadows received the accolade as the best assembly plant operation worldwide. The plants received the ratings for implementation of the Ford Production System, which is designed to improve competitiveness by producing the highest quality vehicles at the lowest cost with the shortest lead times. FPS measures such things as leadership, training, manufacturing engineering, work groups, efficient use of materials, environmental impact and safety standards. Assessment was undertaken by local and international FPS specialists in October this year. "This is an outstanding result by everyone given we are working towards a successful new Falcon launch," said Ford Australia's Vice President of Manufacturing, Rita Bateman. "FPS is providing us with the tools and systems to grow our business and compete in the global marketplace by using our cost advantages and team approach." Ford received special mention from the FPS assessors for its system of natural work groups, leadership quality, and training programs.
