Based in Clacton-on Sea, Evigol Ltd, a bespoke, luxury kitchen design and build company recently selected Homag as its preferred supplier to upgrade its wood processing machinery.
Established in 2017, Evigol which trades under its brand name OOSI, has completed over 100 major kitchen refurbishment projects. The company has seen a significant increase in demand for its products and services following its investment in four Homag wood processing machines.
The technologically advanced, high-performance machinery which Evigol purchased comprises of a Drillteq V-200 vertical CNC processing centre, an Edgeteq S-240 edge banding machine, a Sawteq B-130 panel dividing saw and an Edgeteq T-200 shaped part edge banding post-processing machine.

Commenting on the selection process for the new equipment, Igor Profir, managing director at Evigol said: “From the reviews we had read we knew that Homag offered one of the best ranges of wood processing equipment on the market.
“To confirm our belief, we visited the Homag showroom in Castle Donington, Derby. At the showroom, our area sales manager, Charles Smith, guided us on the exact product specifications to suit our particular needs. His specialist knowledge gave us the added confidence that we were selecting the right equipment supplier.
“We had originally planned to purchase only one Homag machine but after reviewing our specific manufacturing requirements and capabilities with Charles, we confidently opted to purchase four machines instead.
“We were impressed with the manner in which our enquiries were handled and the outstanding treatment that we were given at the Derby showroom.
“The support and help Charles and the Homag aftersales support team have provided us with has been exceptional. When for instance we had a software issue with one of the machines, the Homag engineers resolved it quickly.”

Enhanced efficiency, competencies and customer acquisitions
Commenting on the productivity of the Homag machinery Igor went on to say, “The Homag equipment has automated a lot of our wood processing procedures, and improved our manufacturing efficiency and competencies.
“We are now able to complete big build projects ten times faster than we did previously. This additional production capacity ensures the timely delivery of our projects and has enhanced our ability to attract new customers with larger build projects.
“The Homag equipment has also reduced production errors and wastage by 10% As the machines’ software does all of the calculations for our wood processing, it has removed the human errors that we previously encountered.
“With the upturn in demand for our services, we’re planning to buy another Homag machine soon to supplement our range and further strengthen our manufacturing capabilities and efficiencies.”
