Our regular customers will be aware of how busy we have been during the last six months. The annual pre-Christmas rush has continued right through until Spring and is showing no sign of abating. This is superb news for us and we are grateful to our loyal customers who have been so patient whilst our lead-times have extended more than we would wish them to.
In an effort to increase our throughput and reduce our lead times, we have taken decisive action to expand our workspace and invest in additional machinery. Last week, managing director Tony, never one to let the grass grow under his feet, set about cutting through the back wall of the factory to make an opening into the adjoining workspace.
This "hole in the wall" will be professionally finished with a roller shutter door during the next couple of weeks. Once the extra workspace was created, we were all set to take delivery of two pieces of new machinery.
The Profimat 23E is a five-headed moulder which will be used for the manufacture of our increasing range of engineered hardwood flooring. The Wadkin profile grinder (on the right) will be used to grind any profile quickly and efficiently (further information to follow in future blogs).
Tony looks very pleased with his purchases, we'll have the extra machines up and running in no time, machining all your orders.
