5m investment for Cormar
Carpet manufacturer Cormar Carpets has completed a three year programme upgrading its cut lengths department.
The company has spent £350,000 installing a second 5m cutting machine.
'The project has several benefits for the business and customers,' says David Judge, Cormar md. 'The second 5m cutting machine will be faster and more efficient which in turn increases our capacity.
'Having two 5m cutting machines also provides us with ongoing back-up and as the second machine features the latest technology; it helps to future-proof the cut lengths department.'
Previous investments included the installation of a conveyor system between the warehouse and cutting table that increased cutting rate and capacity, the purchase of four compact boom trucks to service the updated system and upgrading the sortation system.
