New 5M Cut Length Investment for Cormar


Updated. 30.August.2012

5mWide Cutting Machine at Cormar Carpets

Leading UK tufted carpet manufacturer Cormar Carpets invests in top of the range 5m wide cutting machine.

Leading UK tufted carpet manufacturer Cormar Carpets has completed the final phase of a three year programme of investment with the installation of a second top of the range, 5m wide cutting machine within its cut lengths department.

 

“The project has provided several benefits for the business and customers,” said Cormar’s MD, David Judge. “Specifically the second 5m cutting machine will be faster and more efficient, which in turn increases our capacity to service customer’s needs.”

 

“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.”

 

The last phase follows on from the installation of a new conveyor system between the warehouse and cutting tables that increased cutting rate and capacity, along with the purchase of four new ‘compact boom trucks’ to service the updated system back in 2009. The sortation system was upgraded in 2008, which maximised Cormar’s ability to cut, load and ship carpet to tight deadlines.

 

Over the past year, Cormar has demonstrated a continuous policy of inward investment both in terms of plant, machinery, delivery fleet and people - including a brand new advanced logistics system and investment in five new vehicles for its truck fleet of 49 vehicles.

 

It is this commitment to ongoing investment that has seen Cormar Carpets become one of the UK’s most successful independent carpet companies with some one million people a year buying a Cormar carpet.
