Townsend Systems is a well-established family business that works closely with suppliers, designers and manufacturers to provide innovative products and solutions predominantly within the furniture industry.

Challenge Townsend Systems Faced

Having been supplied from Holland for many years, in 2017, Townsend Systems had the chance to take production of their adjustable workbenches to the U.K.

As part of this move, they required a specialist full-service sheet metal fabricator to take on the components and assembly of their products.

Solution ADS Laser Cutting Provided

ADS visited Townsend Solutions warehouse in order to gain a better understanding of the company, what their products are used for and how they work in situ.

A dedicated member of ADS’s CAD team worked with them and produced some amendments to ensure the most appropriate and cost-effective manufacturing process was provided.

Following approval of the amended drawings, a first batch of benches was produced for Townsend Systems to carry out final testing and approval.

How This Proved to be the Best Solution for Townsend Systems

James Townsend, Partner, said:

“It has been a smooth process, from ordering single benches to pallets of three benches being delivered to our warehouse on a dedicated ADS truck. All in all, ADS are producing a high-quality product for us that is finished and ready to sell to our customers and as their team is always willing to help, we can tap into their experience to develop new products and discuss new ideas. We’re very happy!”

Benefits Arising from Solutions Provided

“By working alongside Townsend Systems and acting as part of their team we were able to thoroughly understand them as a business and understand the product itself. This allowed us to implement the best possible solution for their workbenches”, said Duncan Keates, Managing Director at ADS Laser Cutting.

“We have developed a brilliant working relationship with ADS,” James Townsend said, “with this highly positive relationship allowing ADS to act as an extension to our team on existing and new projects”.
