Since the lockdown restrictions were lifted, Masterwood has seen an increased amount of interest from new and existing customers wishing to visit its Gatwick showroom for CNC demonstrations.
“Our showroom currently features: a Project 385L, the latest five-axis CNC; a Speedy II, Masterwood’s newly released fixed-specification drilling machine; and an entry-level flat-bed CNC,” says MD Dave Kennard.
“We can offer a range of demonstrations such as: solid core doors and frames; windows using the latest Whitehill profile tooling; cabinets and panel work; and full stairs – bespoke product demos can also be arranged.
“As well as seeing our machines in action, we have dedicated software packages for stairs, windows, cabinets, doors, furniture and 3D, all available to view during the demonstrations.
“To keep with the current social distancing guidelines, we are limiting visitors to one company at a time and a maximum of two people per company, to ensure the safety of both our staff and customers,” explains Dave. “We shall invite you to wash your hands or use hand sanitiser when you arrive and, if you wish, when you leave. All relevant areas are cleaned between customers’ visits.
“Our Gatwick and Glasgow offices are now operating as normal with social distancing kept in place. Both locations have a large stock of tooling including Whitehill products and spare parts for your CNC. Although some parts coming in from the Masterwood factory in Italy may take longer than before, our office staff and technicians will do everything possible to get machines up and running in the fastest time possible in the case of a breakdown.
“Materwood GB will always be pleased to assist customers who have obtained secondhand Masterwood machines elsewhere. With more space available at its showroom, the company is able to deal directly with second-hand Masterwood machines.
“This enables us to bring machines in,” says Dave, “and give them a full service by one of our skilled technicians, ready for resale. This also allows us to take in old machines in part exchange when buying a new CNC.”
Those interested in seeing any of Masterwood’s CNC and software demonstrations, or wishing to know more about new and secondhand machines, should contact the company directly.
