The Operations department first appears on an organisational chart from January 1981. The area was previously known as Production. Operations represents the factory floor of Pigment Manufacturers of Australia Limited. It was in this area that the actual manufacturing process occurred.
At the head of the Operations department was the Operations Manager, Simon Balfour-Browne, who reported directly to the General Manager of the company.
The Operations department retained the same essential purpose, structure and scale as its predecessor the Production department. See the provenance entry for Production - PMA Ltd for further details.
Operations staff whose records appear in this collection include Simon Balfour-Browne, Laszlo Horvath, John H. Owens, T. Jones, Rob Thomas and Kerry Hewitt.
