Scotts of Thrapston has made a major investment of around £500,000 in new machinery which will allow the business to increase orders and improve productivity.  Scott has taken delivery of a new CNC Router promoting a new factory layout that will help future-proof the business.

Managing Director James Scott said: “This investment will need to continue so we can service the industry and our customers to the quality we have produced throughout the previous 100 years.  A company must always invest to match demand and the competition. Scotts is future proofing the business for its employees so it can trade for another 100 years.”

O T Dare Joinery Consultants, SCM machinery, Kosmosoft and Logical Bridge worked with Scotts to provide and set up the new CNC Router.  The machine was installed within four days, with five days of trials for the operation and software testing. The machine can be used straight away for all bespoke elements, although it will not be fully operational until staff training is completed by September.

The old CNC Router needed modernising as the software had become outdated. The factory was at capacity with the current set up, and the investment in the new machine will allow an increase in productivity.

The CNC is very flexible and will mainly be used for windows and doors, summerhouse doors, feature trusses, porches, gates and any other projects that tooling allows.
