CTPM was created as The
Centre for TPM (Australasia) as an outcome of the first conference dedicated to
Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) in Australasia held in Sydney in 1995. During the conference, there
was a call from the delegates to establish a much-needed Institute for TPM to
support industry, academia and government similar to those already present in Japan, USA
Responding to this call the Centre was established in January 1996 as a membership-based organisation to promote networking and the sharing of learning.
The Centre's initial charter was to develop, promote and advance the knowledge and practice of Total Productive Maintenance in Australasia.
Recognising Total Productive Maintenance and Lean Production are interwoven methodologies, in 2006 we streamlined our business name to CTPM Australasia and expanded our charter to develop, promote and advance the knowledge and practice of TPM & Lean in Australasia while assisting companies to develop their in-house capability.
In May 2007, CTPM gained official status as a Registered Training Organisation (RTO) for the nationally accredited qualification of Competitive Systems and Practices (Cert III and Cert IV).
CTPM's head office is located in Wollongong NSW plus we have an experienced team of On-going Improvement specialists we call Navigators, located and servicing clients throughout Australia, New Zealand, Indonesia, Thailand and China. They provide on-site training, navigation, facilitation and knowledge transfer support until your in-house resources are capable to progress your improvement journey to Operations Excellence through TPM & Lean with minimal external support.
