Six years ago we realised that we could not continue as we were and grow our business. We reseached and investigated various computerised cutting machines. In our opinion Pathfinder came out streets ahead of anything else.

CUSTOMER STORY: Flight Interiors soars to new heights with Pathfinder

Auckland (NZ) based business Flight Interiors, has been supplying premium aircraft interior cabin upholstery and furnishing for over 25 years.

The company has an outstanding reputation for innovation, integrity and quality and over the years has created and stored thousands of patterns for all types of aircraft.

Previously, these patterns were made from cardboard and stored or achived in a pattern room. When required, they would retrieve them – if they had been filed properly. Then the templates would be traced and the material cut by hand.

When management realised that they could not continue to grow the business on analog skills,they reseached and investigated various computerised cutting machines. After intensive research Pathfinder came out streets ahead of anything else.

When we are asked about the investment we made and how long it has taken to recover costs, our answer is very simple – ‘we got a return on the machine as soon as we committed to purchasing it as there was no way we could have carried on as we were’.          Read the full article
