Cimpress ( formerly Vistaprint ) was the first printing company in the world, the first company in Australia and the youngest company ever to win the global Shingo prize for manufacturing excellence.
Vistaprint is an internet facing print company producing business cards, mugs, t-shirts etc. Vistaprint has grown at over 40% per annum and has become a billion dollar enterprise in 10 years.
The enterprise benefited by the acquisition of senior staff who were trained in lean systems in automotive enterprises. The plant installed and improved the very successful Autoliv production system.
“Right from launch, our plant in Australia established a clear vision – to become the best mass customization manufacturer in Australia. The keys to our success have been establishing a clear and long term vision, assembling an amazingly talented and dedicated team here in Melbourne, setting the bar high from day one; and providing continual encouragement and support to the team in order to bring our vision to life.” Robert Bruce, Past Managing Director & Vice President, Manufacturing and Supply Chain.
WHAT YOU WILL SEE & LEARN
