On an even shorter week – 3 1/2 days – with a few holidays thrown in for good measure, the output quantity was low, but the OTIF was still 100%
Although it might seem that this should be easy with such a low output, when we have so many staff furloughed, this is still an excellent performance. The team is being incredibly flexible in how they are working and supporting each other.
As part of this week’s figures we shipped over 300 of our V2.0 Visors for our front line staff who are still having to work and visit sites to keep essential lifts and stairlifts operational.
Products Shipped – 1038
Number of different product types shipped – 34
OTIF – 100%
Our 20,000 square foot upholstery factory is designed into manufacturing cells with all our processes built to make our Upholstery Production with an efficient and effective use of resources. This allows our 50-strong shop floor team to produce large quantities of high-quality products in short lead times and deliver on time, every time.
Each cell includes CNC fabric cutting, adhesive spraying for foam, multiple sewing machines and machinists, multiple upholstery benches and quality inspection, packing and despatch benches.
Our team are multi-skilled and experienced so that one day we could be making 1500 identical theatre seats, the next we could make a single banquette seat. Our process is designed to adapt to whatever our customers need from us as we don’t make any of our own products – everything we make is for our business customers that need highly reliable deliveries of a range of products.
