Author: Kaitlin Ambrogio
The Australia Vistaprint team was honored to receive a Shingo Award from the Shingo Institute, part of the Jon M. Huntsman School of Business at Utah State University. The Shingo Institute recognizes companies for delivering world class results and demonstrating an ongoing commitment to leading and influencing a strong culture of operational excellence.
This is the first time a company has been recognized by the Shingo Institute for its capabilities in the printing industry. Having opened in 2010, Vistaprint’s Deer Park plant is also the first facility in Australia, and one of the youngest ever to receive this internationally recognized award.
“Right from launch, our plant in Australia established a clear vision – to become the best mass customization manufacturer in Australia,” said Robert Bruce, Managing Director & Vice President, Manufacturing and Supply Chain, Vistaprint. “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.”
The Deer Park facility is one of five global manufacturing plants. Each of these facilities is central to our ability to produce high quality and highly customized orders that still remain affordable for customers.
