Capacity and technology developments
Are you looking to scale-up your business? Digital manufacturing processes open a world of advantages without the resourcing issues normally associated with expansion.
The range of processes and materials related to digital manufacturing is rapidly growing, offering exciting advantages in terms of aesthetic appeal and structural integrity. We're here to simplify the wealth of information, to focus on what could benefit you.
Our specialist workshops house a range of equipment, technology and the expertise to support it. Our Digital Manufacturing Consultancy Service team can bridge knowledge gaps with unbiased information, giving you a no-pressure insight into the range of possibilities that different machinery and processes offer.
“Being in the business of bespoke joinery and cabinet making, and with my business growing fast, I wanted to understand more about how I could speed up some time-consuming processes, especially in the production of complex parts and templates for each commission. In a few short consultations, a member of the team outlined and demonstrated CNC routing machinery and potential software that was within my budget and scope of needs. I am now seeing the benefits and am planning incremental changes in my workflow and business.“
Ian Jones, Sherwood Wood, Nottingham.
