2017 was an unprecedented year for FPS, with the culmination of our long-term planning coming to fruition in November. The arrival of new, state-of-the-art equipment and associated relocation to a new factory address at 10 Southlink Street, Parkinson reflects our ongoing commitment to our customers; who continue to support us as a high quality, Australian manufacturer of flexible packaging. Our new address, provides us with a brand new space from which we can continue to grow, innovate, and deliver quality flexible packaging.
Penny, our Continuous Improvement Manager, said, “I started with FPS when the move planning and much of the design for the Southlink site had already been completed by the team at FPS. My experience to date reminds me of a quote from David Bowie, “I don’t know where I’m going from here but I promise it won’t be boring”. To move forward, you have to take a step, embark on a change, go with the vision you set, overcome barriers or challenges and make the success you strive for. I am sure that 2017 was the biggest physical change our team will face for a long time. The team at FPS know we need to face further challenges to remain competitive in our market and are constantly looking at how best to progress. Knowing our business and industry, managing risk, planning, consulting, implementing reasoned strategies, critically analysing our activities, and more planning makes me confident we will succeed. Future proofing a business is a challenge we embrace.“
Our new factory layout and equipment profile allows us to increase print quality, whilst maintaining and improving our ability to supply short run products with quick delivery times. If you would like a tour of the new facility, please contact our sales team.
