Week four of February saw another great OTIF performance in our Upholstery Production although a slightly lower total product count. This is due to a set of larger products going through the factory taking a longer time per item and this was also visible in the different product types that were shipped being considerably lower too. We shipped to 8 different customers this week, with a few new ones coming online too.
Products Shipped – 1813
Number of different product types shipped – 66
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.
