Letter from the Executive General Manager
Welcome to the eleventh edition of ‘insight’!
insignia recently participated at AUSPACK, Australia's premier trade event for the packaging and processing industry. In addition to showcasing our own technologies and solutions, we were proud to share our exhibition stand with our sister company Signet, and collectively celebrate our 50th anniversary with Australian industry.
For us, AUSPACK presents a great opportunity to connect both with our customers, and with stakeholders across the broader manufacturing industry. Key industry trends like Industry 4.0, track and trace technology, and smart packaging are quickly gaining traction and contributing to positive changes within the supply chain. With outcomes for businesses including real-time machine diagnostics, increased traceability, remote monitoring and fleet visibility, it's clear the technology associated with the 'factory of the future' is providing Australian manufacturers with genuine bottom line improvements today.
