Made for Trade partnership with Emmegi reinforced by new CNC machine

korniche_factoryGrowing bi-folding door and conservatory roof supplier Made For Trade have seen their relationship with machinery specialist Emmegi strengthened after the purchase of a two new CNC saws to manufacture their upcoming Korniche lantern roof. Made For Trade, who operate over several factories in Teesside, now own four CNC machines by the brand, with Emmegi’s Sales Manager Martin Linnell describing the close partnership between the two firms as ‘genuine’. He said: “Over the past four years, Made for Trade have shown real loyalty to Emmegi and we have repaid that by delivering exemplary service all the way along.”

Martin added: “Since we first started talking to Bradley Gaunt (Made For Trade’s Managing Director) and his team about what he wanted for his business, we’ve supplied a whole raft of machines to match their ambitious expansion plans and have supported them all the way with quality products, reliable service and expert advice when required.” Prior to the arrival of the CNC machines, Made For Trade had been operating older profile saws, which restricted production when the business saw increased demand and expansion. Emmegi advised on the purchase of a Classic Twin electronic double mitre saw in 2013 which boasted of electronic angle positioning to allow for greater accuracy. Impressed with the service provided, Made For Trade ordered a second Phantomatic T3A and beadsaw in 2015 and two more saws were added this year to help meet demand, including a specifically tooled X4 four axis machine for the manufacture of the company’s new aluminium lantern roof.

Made For Trade’s Bradley Gaunt said: “When we decided new machinery was required during the expansion of the business, we felt that Emmegi were absolutely the right company to go to. They were able to deliver quality equipment that could cope with the high demands of our factories.” With the launch of their innovative aluminium lantern roof just around the corner, Made For Trade hope that the high tech machinery will not only help to accommodate an increase in sales on their existing range, but also allow for accurate and fast production of their new product.

Bradley explained: “With our loyal customer database increasing on a weekly basis and production on our Korniche lantern roof due to start soon, the CNC saws will allow us to increase productivity and become even more accurate and efficient.” About the Korniche lantern, Bradley added: “From the word go, the experience of taking delivery of the Korniche will be all about quality, style and ease of fitting for the installer. We can’t wait to start manufacturing and to show our customers the result of neatly two years of hard work in design and development to create a truly unique product.”
