2013 System Up Grades

Phoenix Millwork is pleased to announce several upgrades to our systems both in production and Engineering.

In the area of production the arrival of our second, Holzer computer numeric controlled router (CNC) and new SCMI edgebander. These two pieces of equipment will not only act as a backup but double the overall capacity of our current machining and edge banding. With these two acquisitions we will now have the capability to better service the needs of our customer base by running two separate production lines, minimizing down time from maintenance and repairs and manufacturing a more precise product processing fewer parts by hand and more on the CNCs.

Our stone shop has added a new wet saw that can cut mitered cuts which gives us additional capabilities as well at doubling our capacity to handle the production needs of our customer base.

Over the last 9 months we have doubled our engineering/drafting department by promoting personnel with shop experience and sending them to school, hiring experienced drafting personnel from other companies, and bringing in fresh personnel out of drafting school. These improvements should help us with getting submittals out in a timely manners and getting more detail into them to improve the overall experience.

We are excited to be positioned well, for what we see as the gradual upturn in the economy, and look forward to fulfilling the needs of those our loyal customers who have helped sustain us in the economic downturn of the last few years.

Thank you for your support,

Mark Hamilton
