Integrated furniture manufacturing & design technologies

Using the technology in order to create value for our customers

The manufacturing of home & office furniture is our mean to transform our ideas into real-life solutions. The quality of the Bestar products is driven by choice of materials, process optimization, training and management models.

To do this we use the best integrated manufacturing technologies that allow us to be flexible, agile and diversified in the production of both small and large-volume batches, regardless of the complexity of the product. The creation process, furniture design and computer-assisted production (which facilitates prototyping and quick fixes), allow us to place the people at the heart of our strategy. At Bestar, our first order of business is to answer the customer’s needs.

Our commitment does not end with manufacturing. Indeed, the technology used at Bestar, such as the information systems for managing internal processes and the automated ordering & delivery via EDI, is the key enabler for rapid-response manufacturing, without sacrificing quality or cost.

We are proud of our work and products. We accept only one level of quality: your satisfaction.

Design

Office and home furniture design

At Bestar, furniture design and creation processes are based on consumer’s tastes. The preferences and trends identified consistently guide the development of our products. The design of Bestar’s office furniture stands out by its form, function and aesthetics. Through advanced IT tools, several steps are eliminated and the creation of value and our productivity are optimized.

Bestar’s home furniture design considers the various current trends in North America. The compact dimensions of today’s homes have contributed to the development of various pieces of furniture, such as wall beds and small desks.

Technology

Information technologies – integrated sales & production management

Through information technology, our production equipment is closely linked to our work units, which gives us the flexibility and ability to quickly produce an impressive variety of furniture. Information technologies are also being used to integrate sales and production, which helps us customize our approach and keep the customer at the heart of the company’s strategy.

Our integrated sales management systems ensure a quality response to customer enquiries, account requests, inventory or real-time synchronization requests, online orders via EDI, etc. The value chain is thus optimized, and efficiency and effectiveness are increased due to faster delivery.

Our integrated production management systems also optimize service through improved just-in-time inventory management and the ability to track shipments using a system linked with our transport partners: FedEx and UPS. Design and computer-assisted production, which facilitate prototyping and quick fixes, allow us to place the people at the heart of our strategy. At Bestar, our first order of business is to answer the customer’s needs.

Our commitment does not end with manufacturing. Indeed, the technology used at Bestar, such as the information systems for managing internal processes and the automated ordering & delivery via EDI, is the key enabler for rapid-response manufacturing, without sacrificing quality or cost.
