Australian Paper

The Australian Paper Mill in Maryvale is a significant site that produces wood pulp and its paper machines use this pulp to produce paper products, from corrugated cardboard and thick paper sacks, to photocopying and writing paper. The plant has been upgraded periodically over the years to improve efficiency and environmental performance, and responding to customer needs with continuous product improvement.

About SIRF Rt Common Interest Work Groups

All SIRF Rt events are designed to provide a safe environment for open discussion with peers on the topic of interest they are working on, in and around. There will be no vendor companies in attendance at this meeting. SIRF Rt Common Interest Work Groups (CWIG’s) provide the best forum for peer-to-peer learning and sharing of knowledge and expertise. Participants are asked to bring something for ‘show and tell’ about the topic of the day as it applies at their organisation – a mini presentation (2 slides maximum), something that you can present in 5min maximum. It could comprise a few photos, a brief descriptions of the current efforts/learnings, a couple of charts or graphs – anything that will help improve the discussion or share knowledge or expertise. After each company shares the deeper discussion follows, guided by our practiced facilitators.
