After several months of trials we have elected to partner with UPS for our UK deliveries.
The UPS service offers some real efficiencies we are glad to pass on to our customers, chief of which is that we can now accept orders for next day delivery up to 3.00pm.
"After trialling several companies we've gone for UPS because of their exceptional service and network" Scott Stevens, Sugatsunes Operations Manager explained
Earlier delivery times
Another benefit is that thanks to their large efficient UK network UPS often delivers before lunch. This has been a boon to distributors like Wixroyd who can ship out on the same day they receive the goods.
Better track and trace visibility
The UPS website is easy to use and allows tracking and tracing with great precision. So you'll always be able to know where your package is and how soon you'll have it.
Timed deliveries to suit you
UPS also has more timed delivery options for particularly important deliveries.
We hope you notice the improved service we can now offer you
Modula Joinery pioneer LIN-X parallel opening door systems
Modula Joinery are a forward looking manufacturer of kitchens and bathrooms who love integrating the latest innovations for their customers.
A city whizz kid living in an ultra modernised victorian cottage in Wanstead is using Modula to create his kitchen. The home has been enlarged with the kitchen area in the back extension widened and connected with the front receptions to provide an extensive living area flooded with natural light. Grey slate floors are continued out into the garden to further add to the feeling of space and with huge glazed patio doors open to create a great indoors/outdoors space.
Contrasting the clean flush surfaces of the kitchen is a rumpled leather chesterfield sofa pointing meaningfully at a large flat screen. What was required was a media cabinet that fitted with the flush look of the kitchen with doors that would'nt get in the way of the families toddlers.
The LIN-X proved to be quick and easy to install - Modula had given themselves plenty of time on site (being old pros) but as it turned out they didn't need it. The city whizz kid was happy and liked the soft closing feature and the way the unit looks neat open or closed. It also looks as if he'll be able to offer guidance to the wife as she toils in the kitchen whilst he keeps an important eye on the football!
How to give your cabinetry the superyacht touch
At the recent Southampton Boat Show a new feature appeared in super yacht interiors. Yacht builders including Sunseeker
have led the way in incorporating a new soft close mechanism into their vanity units. Typically vanity unit lids are flush with their counter top and lift open to reveal the mirror and the contents. The Sugatsune range of soft close hinges offer an elegant solution by combining a discreet hinge with an integral “Soft Close” damper. Easy to install, the hinges are part of Sugatsunes pioneering range of “Lapcon” damper technology products.
“Luxury yacht interior designers are under pressure to create progressively more innovative interiors.” says Mike Rogers of Sugatsune, “luxury refinements such as soft closing vanity units can be a deciding factor as to which boat customers go for. They may not know the relative merits of the yachts composite construction, but the majority will make a decision on features they can relate to”.
Sugatsunes HG-JHM16 range of damper hinges are not simply restricted to vanity units, they can also be incorporated into chart tables, galley range and sink covers, cubby boxes and numerous other stowage applications. Their plastic construction and stainless steel bodied dampers make them suitable for interior and exterior use. The units also have optional cover plates in black or white.
uses established LAPCON technology from Sugatsune - pioneers in damped and technical door systems, which no doubt gives companies like Sunseeker the confidence to specify them.
We'll be showing the HGJHM16 and other innovative marine solutions at the upcoming METS show in Amsterdam
