Description

OERt Site Tour | Lithgow Arms - Thales


ThalesLithgow Arms


Since 1912, Lithgow has proudly supported Australia’s soldiers on battlefields around the world. From Gallipoli, Fromelles and Pozières to North Africa, Borneo and Kokoda, and from Korea, Malaya and Vietnam to East Timor, Iraq and Afghanistan, Australian troops have carried weapons made in Lithgow.

Originally conceived as a factory to make and support weapons created elsewhere, over recent years Lithgow has evolved into a true small arms designer and manufacturer.

The Lithgow Arms team includes local experts plus people with international experience from some of the world’s most renowned arms manufacturers, as well as former military personnel.

Thales have been on their lean journey for seven years and have made significant improvements along the way. Their innovative approach has resulted in a sustained culture change and significant payback for the site. Bruce Hutton, the Manufacturing Operations Manager will present on their lean journey followed by a site tour/Gemba walk.

Come and hear about their journey and how well this has been implemented into their manufacturing process.
