“Fairmont Designs brings manufacturing back in-house”

Over the years Fairmont Designs have seen a complete transformation in the furniture manufacturing industry. Initially, all of the cutting was done by hand using perforated patterns and chalk. Today the patterns are photo-digitised and all of the cutting is done by a Pathfinder M-Series. “We rely on the cutter now’ said Fairmont Production Manager, Fabian Gonzalez. “Previously we relied on imports but the cutter allows us to do it all inhouse.

“The Pathfinder cutter has really helped our business. Our production has improved by 30%”
