At the turn of the century, our family business undergoes several big changes. Son Miha joins the company and brings along youthful energy and new knowledge.
The same year, an R&D department is established and it immediately starts using CAD (computer-aided design) software for product development. Improvements are also made to the production process. The purchase of the first CNC machine, supported by CAM (computer-aided manufacturing) software, immensely increases our production capacity. »This was a big investment for our company, but we knew we had to do it, « remembers Apolonija Novak.
The company makes great strides using the newly acquired technologies. The production time shortens, productivity increases, and the new machines allow the company to combine functionality and great design by producing new forms and shapes. Progress and growth are inevitable. The company moves to a new building with offices for accounting, sales and R&D departments, along with a sleek and spacious showroom. Kovinska galanterija becomes Novak M d.o.o. and is now producing solely its own branded products. Novak M begins focusing on medical equipment in response to the needs of medical staff and their patients during examinations, treatments and therapies.
Novak M develops and presents Table M, a new product with a different construction and design. It provides greater stability, increased range of height adjustment and, for the first time ever, electric height control. This means that the table offers better support for patients and eases the job of medical personnel.
