Kwaliteit, snelheid en service zijn al sinds 2005 de pijlers waarop Sunconfex gebouwd is. Bovendien zet Sunconfex in op innovatie en met twee patenten op zak steeg de groei aanzienlijk in de laatste drie jaar. Om de drie pijlers staande te houden, ook in tijden van vlugge groei waarin ze weleens onder druk komen te staan, zocht Sunconfex het advies- en consultancybureau Moore Belgium aan om een audit door te voeren van de huidige operationele processen, van orderintake tot levering.
We already explained how we achieve our production speed and our delivery reliability score of 96% in June and July in our previous news release. Another important pillar of our company philosophy is quality. Here too we make a sustained effort. The processing of our screens is done with minute attention to detail. We have very detailed instructions for this, which every team member must know and apply with great care. And finally, we test the screens one last time before delivery. We have set out the main points for attention below.
We are proud to announce that we achieved a delivery reliability score of 96% in June and July for our screens. This is substantially better than ever before, in the high season too. So please forgive us for blowing our own trumpet: we owe this amazing performance to the entire team. Obviously, there is reason why we were able to achieve such a high score. We make our customers three promises, about quality, service and reliability. And we work hard to deliver on all three of our promises.
Thanks to innovations like Improved Zip Technology, Zipfix and ClickOn 2 Sunconfex lives up to its goal of bringing the sleekest, most streamlined awnings to the market. Our urge for innovation compels us to remain the prominent player in the European made-up sun protection textile sector we are today.
Work hard, play hard! From March 2020 we will not only start a third production line where six new employees will work. At the same time we are installing a new social space in which around 60 production operators can take a break, eat, relax and enjoy themselves for a while. With its sunny balcony a really inviting hotspot for an after-work drink!
Are you already familiar with the principles of lean manufacturing? It is a management philosophy that seeks to maximize productivity while minimizing waste. This benefits the end customer, who, as a consequence, does not have to pay for unnecessary costs. It is a philosophy that originated in the manufacturing halls of Japanese car manufacturer Toyota, which relied on scientific arguments. In the nineteen nineties, the approach was adopted around the world. It’s all about optimizing production workflow by striving for a strong visual-logical work set-up whereby the employees have good knowledge of the priorities, while at the same time limiting the margin of error.
Sunconfex is continuously investing in research and development, resulting in major innovations which make our exterior screens the flattest and tightest on the market. In our pursuit of an 'improved screen' – a screen that in all circumstances has a tight fit to the window at the top, bottom and sides – we also developed the ClickOn2 click piping and the ZipFix mounting profile. What is the concrete added value of these advanced fabric attachment systems for you as a consumer, installer or manufacturer?
Traditional systems for attaching the fabric to the fabric tube lead to typical horizontal wrinkles because of the thickening at the point where the fabric is fastened to the roll. Do you think that such wrinkles are inelegant on your premises and do you want your screen to be really tight? The ZipFix mounting profile definitively eliminates annoying wrinkles and impression lines.
