SCM has announced that they will be partnering with Gautier, a French producer of custom-design furniture, in the latter’s new project of batch one production.

According to SCM, Gautier has selected a high-automation line for batch one machining at its new and third plant in Saint-Prouant, Nantes, France, in the department of Vendée, with a Smart&Human Factory supplied by SCM.

The production line by SCM extends for 100m and includes cells for nesting, edgebanding and drilling, aided by flexstore automatic storages, industrial robots and handling systems for loading and unloading panels. This investment will ensure that custom-designed furniture production becomes more flexible and efficient.

“We chose SCM because the company’s offer met our specifications most closely, providing relevant and innovative custom solutions. Moreover, we knew the reliability and quality of the SCM Group from previous investments,” commented Olivier Hulot, industrial director of Gautier.
