A greater number of products moved last week with the longer week, but still obviously low while we’re in the midst of the furlough. The range of products was also quite high.
The team is still working hard and have even managed to do some development work for our design agency blackswan.
As ever, despite furlough, we are still maintaining 100% OTIF and customer enquiries are picking back up, albeit slowly. We are even seeing enquiries from new customers, which is encouraging and testament to our reliability in these difficult times. We’ve received a lot of good feedback and gratitude by supporting existing customers with new products at short notice because their current supplier is shut down.
Products Shipped – 1675
Number of different product types shipped – 60
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.
