Obviously a short week last week with the VE Day Bank Holiday. The output was solid as ever and our OTIF remains at 100%. While it might seem that we would expect that with lower output, obviously we have furloughed staff so the output is matched by capacity. The range of products we need to deliver is still just as high so the challenge is exactly the same as it was previously. The OTIF performance is still excellent.

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.
