Close to Customer

Local flexible manufacturing of green personalized furniture

CTC develops methods and innovative enabling technologies towards manufacturing of green and personalized products closer to the customer in terms of features offered, place of fabrication, time to deliver, and cost. The ultimate implementation envisions a “Mini-factory” model that, according to the most strict sustainability limits and with specific single applications, can create a customized furniture production in unusual context such as shopping mall.

The concept is the following:

  1. the client enters in a shopping mall, chooses a furniture, customize it and orders it
  2. the "Mini-factory" near the shopping mall machines the furniture
  3. the client recover his order few hours after
