Steelcase

Production flexibility for
designer furniture.

KPI:
600,000
chairs made every year
50%
increased productivity

The client.

Steelcase is a major player in the world of interior design. The plant makes various models of office chairs and armchairs. 

The target.

An ambitious drive to modernize the production system that also increases automation in an environment where flexibility and efficiency are watchwords. 

The solution.

STEELCASE aimed for repeatable quality, even without an operator constantly aboard the machine with automatic loading  

With E-TURN, the result was better than expected. There was a 50% increase in productivity compared to a 30% forecast made by BLM GROUP during the investment phase.
