"P&G has been a Tier 1 member of ARTC since January 2018, and an Anchor member as of June 2019. During our membership here, we have made tremendous progress on both core and dedicated projects. We have successfully leveraged the Singapore ecosystem, enabling faster and more collaborative innovation. The Industry 4.0 Workshop across Asia was well-received and opened more opportunities to solve business problems, particularly in advanced robotics and smart manufacturing.
The partnership accelerates open innovation for P&G, enabling us to apply advanced manufacturing's best practices across industries into fast moving consumer goods (FMCG). This is more efficient and cost-effective than doing in-house innovation. With the quickened pace of innovation, growing demands of consumers, and the competitive landscape in Asia, the innovation ecosystem and the public-private consortium are critical in accelerating the development and adoption of disruptive technologies in manufacturing.
The partnership with ARTC allows us to serve our customers and consumers faster and more efficiently. It concretes our vision to become a "Manufacturer of the Future", strengthening our foothold as a leader in our industry and accelerating the Industry 4.0 transformation of the FMCG sector as part of Singapore's Smart Nation blueprint."
- Mr Long Quan, Associate Director, Product Supply Engineering, P&G Singapore
