Continued UK investment

In our upholstery factory we’ve used C-Gex machines for the upholstery of chair seats and backs, which use the drawstring method on a heated bed filled with glass beads, which allowing for the covers to be glued and fitted neatly. And they are so good that we’ve just taken delivery of another C-Gex machine as look to reduce our lead times on made-to-order task chairs.

During April we’ve also welcomed not 1, but 2 new machines into the wood mill. The brand new Homag Drilltec D-500 has two tasks - drilling and dowelling - so it can drill panels, inject glue and then insert dowels for improved efficiency. And secondly we have the Baz 722, also from Homag, and this machine specialises in routing and edging two completely different wood panels, both at the same time!
