Manual Shop to CNC Saw Production

Time for a new voyage

Dave and Audrey became owners of Standerfer Stoneworks in 2016. After using a manual saw for a few years, they knew it was time to find a solution to help cut back their lead time and increase efficiency. The VOYAGER™ XP was the machine they had their eye on to accomplish this. However, unsure times (Covid) made them hesitant about purchasing the machine so they hit the pause button in 2020. In 2021, they called their Park Industries sales consultant Dale and were ready to voyage to the new machine.  

Soon after, the VOYAGER™ XP CNC Saw was installed. Dave was blown away with the installation process. He explains, “The machine installer provided loads of technical advice and took his time answering any questions we had. He shared tips on things I never would have thought of! We are thankful for how willing each person from Park is willing to work with us, from beginning to end.” From their experiences in Soldotna, it is hard to find companies that can promise timely, strong support, but Park Industries has delivered just that. 

 

Why Park

A True Partnership

Dave first heard about Park Industries® through a local shop owner who talked very highly of Park. Dave and Audrey connected with Dale from Park Industries® in 2019, soon after hearing even more positive reviews from others. 

Dave and Audrey have experience with a different manufacturer and have found a stark difference with the customer service. Dave shares, “We have little interaction with the non-Park manufacturer – we’ve never seen anyone from that company in person. Park Industries® has a team that is very hands-on, personable, and ready to assist. The team at Park truly wants to help our company succeed and after feeling that with every interaction throughout the entire process, we know we made the right choice in choosing to partner with Park.” 

VOYAGER™ XP

Game Changer

Dave shares on his new saw, “The VOYAGER™ XP has been a total game changer. Previously we steered customers away from miters because they came off of our manual saw needing lots of additional work. Now, our miters are razor-sharp right away. The speed of the VOYAGER XP™ has been amazing.” 

The fact that they no longer need an employee to use a tape measure for every little cut has been felt incredible to Standerfer Stoneworks. The VOYAGER™ XP cuts better and cuts faster for the Standerfers. 

Results

Depending on Strong Service 

Audrey voices her extra appreciation of Park’s service, “We thank Park for the excellent service and support. Our production schedule depends on it. Our business depends on it.” Dave and Audrey spoke with numerous shop owners in the SFA, and local fabricators before partnering with Park. Dave shares, “Everyone who I’ve talked to with Park Industries® equipment raves about Park. We wanted American made equipment with a service team that will pick up the phone when we call. And that is definitely Park.”

Taking on More Jobs

The VOYAGER™ XP has allowed Dave and Audrey to take on more jobs than ever before. Dave shares, “We are able to get significantly more square footage out the door each week. The VOYAGER™ XP has definitely helped our bottom-line. We are producing a higher quality product with a much quicker lead time.”  

With their new saw, Dave foresees they will need to hire more installers – a good problem to have. In addition to increasing production, the VOYAGER™ XP has opened doors for Dave and Audrey to sell more custom capabilities to their customers as well. High quality miters and vein-matching are possible without increasing lead times. 

Dave shares his recommendation, “It is a no brainer to get the VOYAGER™ XP. I would not want to be without this saw – it changes everything for us.”
