LMAC’s team have a pedigree and experience in manufacturing second to none. Our consultants are professional engineers who have spent their careers in both technical and senior leadership roles around the world. Since 2005, we have been supporting this industry across New Zealand in a wide range of disciplines. In fact, there are very few manufacturing or processing technologies that we’re unfamiliar with. Our clients are both large and small. In either case, we’re able to unlock significant production capacity and reduce costs.
Many of our clients are experienced Lean practitioners looking for the next big lift in productivity. In many cases, on-shore operations depend upon it. As a team, we pride ourselves on remaining at the cutting edge of global manufacturing best practice. We invest heavily in continuous learning and self-development via overseas study tours using our extensive international networks. Following 14 years of serving New Zealand manufacturing, we know what approaches are the most suitable for a relatively low volume, high product mix environment.
Dave Armin (LMAC) has 30 years’ experience with automation and robotics. Here, supporting Furnware (specialised furniture manufacturing), a 27% lift in output was achieved in a matter of days.
As with all of our programs, we have a clear focus upon rapid ROI for the client. Many large international organisations are pouring money into Industry 4.0, the scale of which is beyond most NZ enterprises. We are watching international progress closely, and learning from their success and, their mistakes. NZ SME’s can and should start on their Industry 4.0 journey. We can show you techniques now that will lift your productivity and prepare you for the future.

Make New Zealand Great
There’s a growing recognition amongst economists and industry leaders that the off-shore manufacturing model has peaked and is in decline. A new generation of consumers wants customised products with shorter lead times and they’re also more socially and environmentally aware about their purchasing decisions.
THE MATRIX AND THE FUTURE OF NZ MANUFACTURINGProductivity fixes and fads come and go. In recent years, one trend to rule them all has emerged:
“Why are we still manufacturing onshore?”
