What We Do

Manufacturing Optimisation

VWG Consulting assists manufacturing and industrial organisations of all sizes to reduce costs, improve productivity and reduce their environmental footprint. Our business has three primary areas of focus: Operational Excellence, Resource Efficiency,  and Process Engineering.

Operational Excellence refers to the sustainable achievement of goals with respect to cost, product quality, safety, plant reliability , plant flexibility and throughput.

Resource Efficiency refers to the achievement of goals with respect to energy efficiency, water use efficiency, material usage and waste management.

Our Process Engineering work involves optimisation and supporting clients across the full life cycle of capital projects, from concept to commissioning.

Our philosophy is to consider these three areas in an integrated way, incorporating best practice. VWG delivers value through consulting services, training and technology supply.
