Pinewood “The benefit it brings is not just using that data itself but linking it everywhere in the business.
What comes out is not just a drawing - it's all the information we need to run our business.
It can help us order, track costs, and be so much more than people imagine a drawing can be.”
Nick Worboys, Quality Manager, Pinewood Structures
Mactaggart “Working without Framing software would be challenging and largely unfeasible. We can process much
more design output using the software than we could do on a drawing board – plus, manual
designs issued to the factory could not program our machinery. It would be hugely inefficient,
and there is always the potential for human error.”
Colin Alexander, Design Manager, Mactaggart & Mickel Timber Systems Ltd
