Fridge Tooling Industry Assessment & Strategic Plan for the Development of an Internationally Competitive Tooling Industry in South Africa
FRIDGE report located on the Nedlac website. The South African Tool, Die and Mould (TDM) Industry is in a process of re-inventing itself to take advantage of growth in the industry globally and domestically. The FRIDGE has commissioned this study in order to thoroughly assess the nature of the TDM industry in South Africa and globally, and, based on this evidence, to develop a strategic action plan for the industry .
The research has found that the South African TDM industry is not currently well positioned to take advantage of the growth opportunities available to it but that it has the possibility of adapting efficiently and effectively if an Industry Master Plan is adopted by all stakeholders and implemented thoroughly over the next ten years.
