We’re happy to recommend Biesse and regularly act as a reference site for their potential customers.
The company's modern production and state of the art CNC technology confirms their commitment to manufacturing and the production of quality furniture components.
Why did Innova choose Biesse for all their machinery requirements? Innova's Founder and Managing Director Pete Smith explains: "In terms of an investment, Biesse's Total Care package was perhaps the main reason why we initially chose their machines. It was a question of signing the paperwork then just sitting back with complete peace of mind. We were previously spending £12,000 a year in maintenance on one machine alone, so to have 5 years servicing included in the deal was a significant factor." Total Care comes as standard with every Biesse machine and commences as soon as the order's signed. Total Care includes: site survey, off-loading, siting, installation, commissioning, training, 5 years planned maintenance and a full 5 year (or 10,000 hour) warranty.
"We started with a Rover A and built up from there. We now have the total capability to use any process in the manufacture of our furniture, which ensures flexibility in meeting our customer's requirements. Software is compatible on all machines and we now have 'screen to machine ability', which saves an inordinate amount of time. We now have a Rover AG FT nesting cell, Sektor 440 beamsaw, Rover A Edge, Skipper 130 through feed drilling machine with dowel insertion and an Akron 426".
"It lifted everyone's ambitions. We've increased production by 500% and have managed to win some very prestigious contracts as a result of our investment. One contract in particular is for a global brand, which we won on the strength of our capabilities. We are now much more competitive, not only in terms of cost but more importantly in terms of our overall capability and skill levels." "We now tend to 'get it right first time', quality has improved and efficiencies in terms of materials and time are obvious benefits".
