All of the organization’s departments and services are integrated and efficiently controlled with the use of sophisticated management systems, including both an enterprise resourcing planning (ERP) and customer relationship management (CRM) system.
High added value
Central to the value proposition provided by MaCo is its value engineer consultation service. This process directly contributes to feasibility of a project, its functionally as well as the bottom line. It may also be particularly advantageous in terms of technical optimization of design projects before entering the implementation phase.
MaCo believes that its participation from the design phase helps not only to realize, but also optimize the vision of the architect or designer. Recommendations are directly applied to the manufacturing process, which in turn, boosts efficiency. Therefore, in addition to providing the customer with an added guarantee on the feasibility of the project in terms of budgets and deadlines, this support also contributes to the overall quality of the project.
MaCo has always viewed this process as being mutually beneficial, allowing it to become closer with its customers, whom it see as partners. Sharing technical knowledge with its partners allows both the client and MaCo to have a more in-depth understanding of the project, which results in a clear and efficient execution. Maco’s customer-focused attitude is one of the great added values of this organization, marking its professionalism and truly setting it apart.
A modern company with a fine touch
MaCo is a modern company utilizing advanced technologies to further its architectural millwork capabilities with the aim of ensuring accuracy, quality and speed of execution, while still retaining its fine touch and craftsmanship.
To ensure this high level of technical and operational performance, MaCo employs specialized systems for the design and assembly of parts (CAD) which works with numerically controlled machine tools (CNC).
MaCo, specializing in complex projects
On another level of expertise, the company enjoys an unparalleled reputation for its great capacity to meet the demands of complex projects whose designs fall outside of the norm.
This core strength is based on the knowledge and special attention that MaCo gives to design. That base enables the company to leverage its technological skills as well as its superior craftsmanship, allowing it to manufacture pieces outside of normal standards, such as curved and round units.
Corporate Social Responsibility
In its industry, MaCo is a great supporter of quality standards. More specifically, as an organization, it is actively involved in promoting the standards officially established by the AWS (American Woodwork Standards) for all of North America and implemented in Canada by the AWMAC (Architectural Woodwork Manufacturers Association of Canada). Working in collaboration with other members of the architectural millwork industry, MaCo aids in making sure its publics are aware and implementing these standards in their operations.
