In our new series, we will start to report on our factory performance each week, including our output volume and our On Time In Full Performance. To catch us up to date, this is our Upholstery Production performance for January (weeks 1-5). Obviously Week 1 of January was a very short week, containing only 1 and 1/2 days (as our factory closes for maintenance and cleaning on Friday afternoons.)
Total products shipped – 9576
Number of different product types shipped – 113
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 s 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.
