“Dalzavod” was the first in the Far East to master the production of ship furniture
JSC “Dalzavod” Ship Repair Center” is creating a ship furniture manufacturing shop. Woodworking shop No. 7 has started to make the first samples with a “Far Eastern registration” – previously, there were no enterprises producing ship furniture in the Far Eastern Federal District.
Special equipment was ordered for the new production. New machines, delivered to “Dalzavod”, will allow the enterprise to develop a new production line. Marine furniture is in demand by the enterprises of the shipbuilding and ship repair industry in connection with intensification of this activity in the region: the range and scope of work are large. The main criteria for the material, from which the ship furniture is made, are corrosion resistance, moisture resistance, fire safety and the absence of toxic components.
The production shop was opened on the basis of the woodworking shop No. 7 of “Dalzavod”, whose task is to fill the internal space of ships and vessels with pieces of furniture and interior design. New design specialists were hired for the workshop, allowing the plant not only to manufacture furniture according to ready-made drawings, but also to develop it from scratch.
Thanks to the new equipment, “Dalzavod” will be able to expand its competencies and manufacture any furniture (except metallic), as well as increase the speed and quality of the performed work. Thus, the enterprise will be able to fulfill orders not only of the Pacific Navy without restrictions, but also to develop the civilian direction, working with the “Zvezda” SBC. As a pilot project of cooperation, equipping the marine supply vessels with furniture is considered. The new capacities of the woodworking department of “Dalzavod” will allow to cover the need in ship furniture for all orders of the “Zvezda” SBC and become the only supplier of these works.
“Dalzavod” plans to produce furniture for a wide range of customers. Among the competitive advantages is the location of the workshop in close proximity to the main potential consumers, ease of transportation and assembly of furniture. In the future, based on the production of ship furniture, it is possible to organize production of furniture for the population.
