INVESTMENT IN NEW MACHINERY – MAY/JUNE 2019 .
Greetings to all of our friends and followers . We hope everyone is enjoying the lovely crisp winter days with blue skies that we have in Bulawayo .
We have had a busy time recently . Production has been good . No power cuts in May at all .
In spite of the challenging times our orders have been steadily increasing . Thank you Customers !!!
Net result is that we decided to invest in some “ New Machinery” .
Now to be clear , the machinery in new to us , although it is actually second hand but in good condition .
We have fine technical guys to maintain and commission these wonderful old machines . They range in age from fifty years to three years .
The photies are posted below . For those who are technically minded there are four new machines .
An Italian made “ thicknesser planer” – a fine machine in beautiful condition .
A “spindler” made in England many years ago .
A Taiwanese “ planer”
And finally an East German ( Remember them?) “ router” .
This investment in machinery was made for several reasons . To increase production capacity , to improve quality and delivery times . Also to provide redundancy in case other machines have breakdowns .
Importantly better production gives us the chance of passing on the benefits of lower lowered prices . That is the aim .
We are all very excited about this . It is good for morale and confidence . It has been a few years since we had new machines .
Orders in the last two months have been along these lines
Painted Pine 8%
Production for June is on stream to be our best month in several years . We are praying for no or few powercuts . We do have back up generators but ZESA is best .
