Manufacturship is an agile consulting practice that mentors, trains and advises senior and emerging leaders in production based businesses to create rapid and sustainable performance improvements.
Jason’s driving passion is to see organisations execute projects and production on or ahead of time, every time, all of the time to become world class manufacturers. To this end he is the co-author of the recently released book ‘Manufacturing Money – How CEOs rapidly lift profits in Manufacturing’. His background is in leading complex engineering change management and improvement programs with cross-organisational project teams.
Jason started his career at Holden in the late 1980’s. He led turnaround programs in a number of roles within Holden, including running the largest grey iron foundry in the southern hemisphere. A team of 400 people produced over 3000 engine blocks a day and set new records in productivity, quality, and on time delivery.
Jason’s major achievement at Holden was leading the building of their current $200m engine plant with a consortium of Japanese companies, the US product designers and the local Australian team.
Prior to starting Manufacturship he was the General Manager of the $247m Electrolux Refrigeration Factory in Orange. The business employs 600 people producing over 320,000 fridges a year for Australian and overseas markets.
In this role Jason oversaw Manufacturing, Raw Material Purchasing, Quality Improvements, Safety, Inventory Management, Maintenance, and New Model Introductions.
