Robots or Craftsmen – who will win?
It’s the old ‘man or machine?’ question, but we need both. In our industry, there haven’t been that many technological advances. Making the timber components calls for state of the art machinery and sophisticated software to optimise batch sizes and material yields but all the soft components we need – foam, fibre and fabric – mean skilled craftsmen will always have a place at QFC.
Our well-trained sewing machinists, upholsterers and skilful product developers are essential. Truly, it’s the combination of man and technology which lets us make handmade upholstery on a large scale. Collaboration beats individualism every time.
