Flexibility is a natural foundation for the furniture producer HOWE. Not just when delivering stackable- and foldable chairs and tables, but also in the work processes needed to produce the attractive furniture. Linimatic is cooperation partner and in addition to the production of end caps with wheel and height adjustments, Linimatic also assembles products for HOWE. It gives HOWE flexibility and quality assurance to place the work at a supplier, who has the full responsibility for the entire process.
Linimatic as cooperation partner
Linimatic has since 2002 among others delivered end caps for the Tempest table support structure and the hinge system, that makes it possible to fully fold the supports of the Simpla table. Today Linimatic has become cooperation partner and is responsible also for the assembly, which gives HOWE advantages.
Henrik Olssom, VP Supply Chain, HOWE has no doubt about the advantages: "It means, that we are able to spot potential errors earlier in the process. The deliverytime is improved as we can get the deliveries out on time. And the use of cooperation partners is an important step towards increased growth for HOWE. We wish to grow, but within the existing facilities, and outsourcing is one of the keys to achieve this goal. What we are good at others must do - what we are great at we shall do."
