Case story

Woodbase Joiners Ltd, United Kingdom

Woodbase Joiners Ltd. is a traditional joinery business, which has successfully blended craft knowledge with modern technology to gain business benefits and drive its growth.


Managing Director, Simon Bartlett, and co-founder, Richard Blackman, invested for the future a decade ago. After much deliberation, and significant research, they chose a Maka PE70 5-axis CNC router and Staircon software from Elecosoft. Today, this combination keeps the company busy constantly, delivering top quality, bespoke staircases for customers that include architects, interior designers, developers, and private clients.

Woodbase Joiners invested in its digital capability before the last recession kicked in, and has never regretted it. Choosing the right machine was important, but selecting the right software was key to making the new processes work.
