SAGE Group has been named Manufacturer of the Year at the 2020 Australian Defence Industry Awards.
The award comes as recognition for the SAGE Group’s contribution to manufacturing for the defence industry, spanning a wide customer base across Australia.
The Defence Industry Awards ceremony was a mixture of both digital and in-person, with COVID-safe events in Canberra, Brisbane and Sydney also live streaming to those at home. The awards are designed to recognise professionals and businesses in the industry, rather than products and platforms.
“We are so proud to be recognised as Manufacturer of the Year in the Australian Defence Industry Awards. SAGE continues to build on its Industry 4.0 manufacturing capabilities to ensure our clients benefit from greater efficiency and a smooth collaboration,” said Adrian Fahey, SAGE Group Managing Director and CEO.
“Using our Industry 4.0 initiatives, such as the digital twin, also creates greater transparency in the manufacturing process for our clients, leading to a better user experience,” he said.
SAGE utilises a number of Industry 4.0 initiatives to produce greater volumes of work for the defence industry, enabling the manufacturing work to be completed faster with high accuracy and at a cost-competitive price point.
In 2020, SAGE completed defence manufacturing work for every single state – all from the company’s Advanced Manufacturing Facility in Tonsley.
