The outcomes, and the way we’ve been able to maintain them over time, have definitely exceeded my expectations of what we might achieve. The project has already delivered savings of hundreds of thousands of dollars, with the potential to save millions of dollars in the long term. I would definitely recommend OE Partners and look forward to working with them again.
OE Partners’ valuable experience, strong work ethic and confidence generated a lot of respect from our staff. Personally, they gave me a fresh perspective on the business, encouraged me to revisit some good management theories. The work we did enabled us to bring about significant improvements in the business.
In just three months, the work with OE Partners has assisted us in lifting DIFOT from around 60% to more than 90%, sales volumes have increased, and we have reduced manpower by 20%. The business is now running very smoothly and we are extremely pleased with the overall outcomes.
OE Partners has the skills and the hands-on experience to really understand our problems and what could be done to address them. Their advice on how we could improve our operations was tailored, specific and very well informed. We’ve got much better structure and processes in place to handle our inventory, and we have much greater efficiency and effectiveness in our operations.
We were very happy with OE Partners and will work with them again on Lean manufacturing. The new Lean factory layout certainly allows for potential growth of 10 to 15% with our existing headcount. Our staff supported the major changes to production lines and they love the efficiency of the new common warehouse system.
I would recommend OE Partners because of their extensive experience and they’ve got a great ability to make things happen. We're learning more about a whole lot of skillsets, and they contributed to that learning. We’re excited about the journey we’re on together.
The biggest benefit we’ve had working with OE Partners is understanding areas of improvement, what the processes we need to work on first and making actual structural changes to our ERP system and warehouse. The improvements have allowed us to work faster and smarter.
I recommend OE Partners because what they gave us to start off with exceeded my expectations and they are a very talented team. The outcomes we’ve achieved have been fantastic
We certainly have a much more efficient, much more organized workplace.I really liked OE Partners’ ability to put it down on paper and to keep our belief in the process moving forward.
I liked their structured approach to organising workplaces.
Really happy with their efforts, communication of results to the team and suggested path to better productivity across all projects, don't hesitate.
I recommend OE Partners because we had a fabulous result with them. In terms of what our needs were and what we were able to achieve we had an outstanding result.
OE Partners helped us to better understand and implement improved processes in our daily warehouse operation and assisted us in our interview processes to identify and employ better our management
We've had a very positive experience with OE Partners, and we're still early on in our journey, but so far they've been true to their word. They've met our expectation and they've mapped out what we think is a great program of milestones for us to move the needle forward.
I recommended OE Partners because they been able to stick at this with us and they are helping us transform. So from that aspect, they have definitely have partnered with us more than just being consultants that come in, tell us what to do and then walk away, leaving us to try and do it ourselves. Thanks team.
OE Partners are very pragmatic, practical, and solid in terms of their knowledge, and they've got very good solutions. Highly recommended.
I would highly recommend engaging OE Partners to optimise and improve your operations and bottom line.

Orrcon Steel is a leading Australian manufacturer and distributor of steel, tube and pipe. On introducing an automated steel bar picking machine, the company quickly found bottlenecks and inefficiencies meant next-day deliveries were often not being met. OE Partners immediately delved into the brains of the equipment, and through data analysis identified the causes of bottlenecks and changed methods of operation to ensure next-day delivery of steel.
Like many successful startups, Incsub had grown organically and rapidly. But a lack of proper systems and processes led to client losses because of mistakes, duplications and staff confusion as to how to approach tasks. OE Partners outlined two business objectives; build foundations to facilitate scaling and achieve measurable improvement of business performance in customer retention and growth.
Bob Stewart has retail stores in Kew, Malvern and Mentone, but it was the pending move to a much larger new warehouse that prompted a call to OE Partners. We identified three areas of opportunity: new warehouse operations and layout review; embroidery process improvement; and supply, demand and planning review. It was agreed that the most pressing issue was optimising operations in the warehouse, and ensuring greater efficiencies were achieved.
MenuCorp is a leading designer and manufacturer of menu covers quality business products. It wanted to review its business processes, and bring in expert eyes to identify potential improvements. OE Partners carried out three key areas of analysis: product value and volume study, value stream mapping and team member focus interviews and workshops. Staff was then involved in reviewing the operation and pinpointing key areas for improvement.
Due to growing demand, Regent Caravans relocated from a 4,500 sq metre factory to new 10,000 sq metre premises. OE Partners was called in to create a Lean layout to maximise utilisation of space, reduce double and triple handling of stock, and cut wasted movement of staff and materials on its two production lines. OE Partners quickly saw opportunities to improve productivity and free up production capacity to meet the increased demand.
