Buying direct from the manufacturer – Strata Panels

Helen Heath, Queens’ College’s Head of Housekeeping, wanted a local furniture manufacturer to come up with a solution of making bespoke contract furniture that would fit in with the historic feel and dark timbers of the 1911 built Queens’ College Dokett building, as well as a more modern looking style Queens’ College Cripps Court built during the 1970s. Strata Panels based a short distance along the A14 just north of Huntingdon responded to the challenge having made student furniture for over 15 years. “Strata’s Mark Garrood listened to the brief and produced sample pieces of furniture that met our exact criteria and at competitive prices.” - Helen Both designs were made using European Oak veneered MDF, the furniture for the Queens’ College Dokett building had oak crafted edges that were machined to give the detail a period look and were stained dark brown to match the exposed timbers and wall panelling which gives the building its character. Handles were sourced from India that complemented the furniture’s appearance and completed the antique look. The furniture for Queens’ College Cripps Court had 26mm thick oak veneered carcasses and was finished in a clear lacquer.

Joinery Company demonstrates UK Manufacturing cuts cost and reduces Carbon Output

A Cambridgeshire based Joinery Company, Strata Panels UK, has secured a second order with Tigi Hair Care confirming that UK manufacturing cuts cost and reduces carbon output. Tigi Hair Care, now owned by the Unilever group, have ordered over 2000 product display units from Strata Panels UK. The display units were originally manufactured in the US and were ‘value engineered’ by Strata Panels to reduce overall weight. Display shelves were changed from acrylic to metal making the units easier to handle by salon staff. Strata Panels UK MD Carl Jenkin stated; ‘We were originally tasked with manufacturing the units at the same cost as the US. Transport costs were high; it quickly became clear that lighter units and reduced freight costs had a significant impact on the delivered price.’ ‘We are starting to see clients spreading manufacturing quantities; moving away from Chinese production because of high transport costs, long lead times and inventory levels. One of the advantages of smaller UK manufacturers is that we can take on lower volume orders and still remain competitive.’ The news comes at a time when the UK has set the most ambitious target of any developing country in pledging to halve carbon emissions by 2025. With more than a quarter of the UK’s carbon emissions coming from industry it is vital that the carbon output of finished products is reduced.
