One of the points we regularly make here at Zubak & Associates is that any industry can be transformed through innovation and technology. And that includes the manufacturing sector, which has continued to innovate to remain competitive against the offshore markets.
John Zubak visits closet manufacturer Imagine the Room and talks with owner Tanner Sherwood about how a second-generation family business keeps itself current and relevant for its current and future customers.
In this video you will see many examples of innovation and implementation of technology including:
(a) bringing customers greater choices in finishes, innovative design and storage systems while reducing manufacturing times,
(b) manufacturing cost savings through initiatives such as material optimization with the use of CNC routers and computer enhanced layouts
(c) and adapting to COVID by using video conferencing to view and measure customers’ rooms without having to go into a home and then bringing customers into their showroom virtually.
On top of these points, this video shows that being proactive in sourcing and testing new solutions, equipment, and processes continuously is the secret to delivering what your customers need now as well as tomorrow.
Tanner also looks into his “crystal ball” to share where he sees augmented and virtual reality playing a future role in how consumers plan their living spaces.
Here at Zubak & Associates, we embrace innovation in all forms and apply it safely and in a user-friendly, profitable way.
