Watkins Steel has been named a finalist in the ISPT Award for Digital Adoption Strategy. This award is one of 10 categories in the 2017 Lord Mayor’s Business Awards (LMBA), which acknowledges businesses that have made outstanding contributions to the continued growth of the Brisbane economy.
Watkins Steel has been shortlisted for this award by demonstrating innovation and competitiveness in the Australian steel manufacturing industry through continued investment in technology, which is creating significant advancements in the business.
We believe we have embraced digital technology by introducing the use of mixed reality (virtual/augmented reality) into the steel manufacturing and installation process, as well as improving upon our existing processes through the commissioning of our second line of automated robotics, which links all three of our machines into a single line – to our knowledge a first in Australia!
