CAD Design to Production In Interior Design Shop Fitting
Van Keulen Interieurbouw is a family company with a long history. It was founded in 1944 by carpenter Lammert van Keulen. After more than 75 years of growth and development, Van Keulen Interieurbouw is now a leading and respected player in the Dutch interior design and shop fitting sector – and they are still a family business.
Van Keulen Interieurbouw is the absolute specialist in the Netherlands when it comes to interior design for the retail and project market. They offer clients the optimal interior solution for any situation. Custom work is standard. Everything they do has one objective: to achieve all their customers’ requirements, down to the very last detail.
They have extensive manufacturing facilities for processing wood, metal, and plastic. This means that they can manufacture and customize virtually any interior element to meet the customer requirements.
In order to maintain leadership, they need to supply the custom CAD design work fast with lead-times that are always short. This is a key focus of the company even going to the point to state if they need to deliver the next day, they will deliver the next day!
To deliver to that expectation, they needed to have CAD design systems that could drastically increase their productivity and would integrate into their ERP system to facilitate the planning, manufacturing, and delivery. This design system also had to fit into the future growth and planning of the company as they are always looking into the future to stay ahead of the competition.
Not only do they use IronCAD in the design department to achieve over 20% productivity gains over previous systems, but they also leverage IronCAD in the sales department to communicate 3D concepts to the customer that can quickly convert to designed products and then be leveraged in the production department for clear processing instructions.
Flexibility is key to custom design work, together with Van Keulen Interieurbouw, IronCAD’s flexibility is producing a better manufacturing process with short lead times and custom quality products.
