Staverton has improved its production capabilities, capacity and lead times significantly after becoming a 100% Homag manufacturing facility.
We’ve invested in five new pieces of Homag equipment in response to a growing post-pandemic shift from single workstations to larger collaborative work settings.
Ian Samuel, Operations Director at Staverton said: “Whilst many manufacturers looked to take cost out of their operations, we decided to be more bullish and invest in our factory to give us more capability and capacity. We believe this positive approach will provide a better proposition to take to the market in the post-COVID, post-Brexit period.”
Now fully operational at our Rotherham manufacturing facility, we have a five-axis CENTATEQ E-310 which is suited to making curved parts and can increase throughput, provide flexibility and improve production capabilities. Drilling and inserting capacity have been improved with the DRILLTEQ V-200 and the edgebanding process has been enhanced with the EDGETEQ S-300, the LOOPTEQ 0-300 automotive return system and the XES 200 glue station.
Ian concluded: “The new machines have improved every aspect of our manufacturing processes and increased our throughput by more than 40%.”
Building further on a 20-year relationship with Homag, the new equipment will be pivotal to our continued growth as a British office furniture manufacturer and will help us maintain our hard-earned reputation as a furniture innovator.
Paul Edward, Managing Director of Staverton said: “We’ve been solving client’s office furniture challenges for decades. To be able to respond to clients’ specific challenges without compromise, we not only need the best people and practices, but the best equipment too. This investment is an investment in the future of Staverton and our ability to innovate. It will allow us to keep doing what we do best.”
