In 2014, Capital Veneering conducted a review of their setout processes and replaced their old CAD/CAM software with TopSolid'Wood. Capital Veneering were thorough in their approach and were able to identify that productivity improvements of 25% were possible with TopSolid'Wood over their current solution.

"TopSolid'Wood has been a great addition to the manufacturing processes we have at Capital Veneering. With the detailed and sometimes complex projects we work on a smart, user modifiable software solution was required. The tight lead times we work with also meant that we needed to reduce drawing revision and pre-production times. TopSolid'Wood has allowed this to happen.
My team are very happy that we changed over to TopSolid'Wood from our old software and are able to produce more work for the factory with less overtime.
The team at Integrated Joinery Solutions have been a big part in the implementation of TopSolid'Wood at Capital Veneering and have always been there for us to assist and guide, even when I have made the error."
Andy Mann, Pre-Production Manager, Capital Veneering
"We are always looking for new and innovative ways to improve our business. We had invested in our machinery and workshop processes and this resulted in increased production capacity. In looking at how we could feed our increased production capability, our attention turned to the setout department, which was where a bottleneck now existed.
There were two obvious paths to increase productivity in the setout area;
- increase staff and maintain the current processes OR
- review the current tools and processes used in the setout area
We opted to conduct a full review of the processes and tools used in the setout area and this lead us to selecting TopSolid'Wood as our new CAD/CAM software solution. We understood that implementing a new software solution would not be the easy option, but the easy option is not always the best option for the business long term. There have been some short term challenges for the business as we transition from our old software solution. But we were committed to the change, and we knew that the challenges in the short term would be worth it in the long term.
As we start to see the productivity gains that we knew could be made by moving to TopSolid'Wood, we are confident that we have made the best decision for the future of our business."
