Our production organisation

To provide all our customers with the best services, we have specialised our production, assembly and installation sites by channel: large-scale retail, small-scale retail and contract. The only exception is the highly-technological kitchen furniture site, which has been kept separate intentionally for strategic reasons. The entire process centres on the production and processing of edgebanded panelshistoric core business. In fact, the edgebanded panel production site is still the technological heart of the system and where approximately 5 million is spent every year in innovation.

To guarantee smooth production flows of the required quantities, the plants are organised into very large departments to process 100% environment-friendly sheets of Italian class E1 (low levels of formaldehyde) particleboard.

“The production capacity of a large corporation, the flexibility and creativity of an artisan workshop.”

The main processes of sawing, edgebanding, drilling and shaping (for curved items) are performed in every department. Naturally, every department implements specific process and product quality control procedures. Our plants are indeed highly specialised, enabling us to combine the production capacity expected of large manufacturers with the flexibility and creativity of a small business, with costs in line with industry norms. In addition to producing unfinished panels, IMAB Group’s in-house plants also include departments and technologies for coating panels with environmentally sustainable materials. In accordance with a product schedule updated daily, unfinished panels are sent to the fitting and assembly units. Here the panels are transformed into pieces of furniture based on product specifications set during the design and industrialisation stages. The products are then transferred and stored at the channel-specific logistics centres. The products are also either packaged with cardboard or heat shrink film, based on whether they are supplied completely or partially assembled. Many outgoing logistics phases are handled by warehouses employing automated order picking and sorting systems managed by specific software. This not only drastically reduces human error during picking and despatch (cutting overall procedure times), but also significantly shortens loading times for outgoing carriers, an important factor contributing to our impressively fast deliveries.
