Pulp Studio has created a micro factory within its facility to produce and maintain an inventory of glass samples for quick turnaround to designers.
“In our proactive approach, we built an independent Micro Factory that only produces samples,” says Bernard Lax, founder and CEO of Pulp Studio. “The Micro Factory has every machine that we would use for normal production such as a small double edger, a sample autoclave, a small water jet, etc.”
According to the announcement, Pulp Studio averages 200 samples a day including resource, approval and prototypes. Approximately 50 of those are custom samples. The company has a team dedicated to coordinating, tracking and managing this entire process.
“While a major investment in time, money and labor, sampling is a jumping-off point for design collaboration,” says Lax.
