The Manufacturing Productivity Technology Centre (MPTC) is an annual event hosted in Singapore by renowned philanthropist, technology buff, and inventor Carl Freer. The yearly occasion was created an effort to establish awareness for the productivity enhancements by local entreprises. These advancements deal with many aspects of business, including technology innovation, development, and more.
This year, Freer’s 2015 conference brought much to the table. He discussed many points and garnered an immense amount of attention, and specifically spoke thoroughly about lean enterprises and their impact on the various industries operating in Singapore. During the discussion, Carl suggested that businesses could transform themselves into a “lean enterprise” by creating a seamless system for production, automation, design, manufacturing, and more. The Manufacturing Productivity Technology Centre presentation was a success in it’s entirely, and as the conference has shown, we expect nothing but bigger things from Freer on next years’ go around.
Freer’s other accomplishments outside of his annual conference span from philanthropy to medical device innovation. Carl Freer is the Chairman of the Freer Family Tree Foundation, which is a non-profit business that uses crowdsourcing to raise money that benefits poverty stricken children in need. The foundation is set up in a way that allows donors to pledge money to an array of different causes. Some of the current projects include building an orphanage in Cambodia, creating a child development center in India, providing aid to the children’s burn foundation organization, establishing a children’s trust for the impoverished youth, helping refugees from Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, and Sudan, and more. It is Freer’s hope that a donor looking to assist with any of these programs will provide funds to the cause that connects with them the most on a personal level.

In addition to his calling as a generous philanthropist, Carl Freer is also focused on his medical device company, Aluminaid. Aluminaid deals specifically with the treatment of first and second degree burn victims, and is headquartered in Singapore, a place where Freer is stationed often. Aluminaid offers an abundance of pain relieving bandages in its current line thus far, and has plans to unveil more offerings as its healing technology becomes integrated into the development of other burn treatment products. The current line utilizes both natural and synthetic elements, which allows the Aluminaid bandages to create the high level of heat dissipation that is needed to most efficiently treat thermal burns of all types.
As Carl Freer continues his mission to create new disruptive technology and ideas that revolutionize the way that our world operates, we hope to learn more about his endeavors at the 2016 Manufacturing Productivity Technology Centre (MPTC) Conference.
