AME Visits PACCAR Australia
On August 24 2017, 22 AME Members and Colleagues attended an exclusive Workplace Insights Tour at PACCAR Australia in Bayswater North, Victoria. The visit to the Kenworth plant focused on Safety, Quality, and Employee Engagement systems.
Bart Hoemann, Operations Director and Andrew Hadjikakou, Managing Director, welcomed the guests and provided a detailed overview of PACCAR and Kenworth Operations. Attendees then broke up into smaller groups and visited the Kenworth Factory, Kenworth Warehouse and PACCAR Parts Warehouse.
Feedback from the event was excellent.
