Trend Terrazzo Invests in New Machine to Increase Cutting Capacity
Florida-based Terrazzo floor company brings in a major new tool to better meet high consumer demands.
The impressive machine measures 60 ft by 20 ft by 60 ft, and is horseshoe shaped. Each side is just over eight feet wide to provide plenty of workspace. When it is finally delivered to the Port of Miami, it will be stored in 15 separate 40-foot containers.
Trend Terrazo explains the investment by emphasizing the fact that the new machine is needed to keep up with consumer demands. Recently, the company had to organize different multiple shifts for cutting tiles to keep pace. The new machine will not only be able to cut tiles with a specific shape and bevel, but just two people are needed to operate it. Generally, the same projects would require six workers.
It might seem hard to imagine equipment of this size being installed and made ready for use right away, but the factory is already set for installation. Preparations for the concrete have already been made and even a recycling system for the water that the machine uses has been developed. That should drastically cut down the amount of time the business needs to spend waiting for the new tool to start paying off.
Trend Terrazo is looking forward to seeing how exactly the new customized, automatic machine will enhance their business. Hopefully, it will double their cutting capacity, reduce costs, and allow jobs to be completed quicker. That ability should make the big investment highly worthwhile.
