Companies in Australia are turning to the Industrial Internet of Things to streamline production and reduce costs to remain globally competitive.
South Australian business Dematec Automation has been helping companies streamline their operations for almost three decades. Its core business for many years was working with manufacturers but a downturn in that industry has seen it diversify into defence, food and beverage, water and agriculture.
“The key drivers of what we do are to make our clients more productive, more efficient and give them the capability to do things they couldn’t do before, or to be more compliant or safe,” Dematec CEO David Hart said.
“Because we operate in a global economy, if you can’t be as efficient or as flexible in what you do then people are going to buy lower cost items from Asia or they will go for premium products from Europe or America.
