Upholstery Production Week 11
The second week of March was back to a more stable output without any major problems, although still the second highest output in terms of product quantity of the year. Due to the more stringent cleaning regimes within the factory due to Corona Virus, we should have been a little less productive but the teams are responding brilliantly. The large delivery of headboards cleared a bit of space in the factory ready for the next batch. Overall, a good week with another 100% OTIF performance.

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.
