Customers with a wide variety of tastes, from luxury hotels to government institutions, have relied on U.K.-based Ellis Furniture for their high-quality furniture needs for over a century. Due to the company’s ongoing high standard for quality customized furniture and continued dedication to new and innovative technology, the Autodesk Manufacturing community has recognized Ellis as the 2012 Inventor of the Year.
Ellis was chosen the 2012 Inventor of the Year after a month-long voting process throughout February. The competition, which set the record this year for the highest number of participating votes, included all 2012 Autodesk Inventor of the Month recipients — each of which rose to the challenge to develop the most innovative design and engineering advancements with standout products that achieved a practical need.
The Autodesk Inventor of the Month program identifies the most innovative among hundreds of thousands of designers and engineers that invent with Autodesk Digital Prototyping tools. Last year’s recipients leveraged a variety of Autodesk solutions, including Autodesk Product Design Suite, Autodesk Factory Design Suite, the Autodesk Simulation software portfolio and Autodesk PLM 360.
Ellis, Autodesk’s August 2012 Inventor of the Month, uses Autodesk Inventor software as part of Autodesk Product Design Suite to offer customers greater levels of product customization and to cut time from the company’s manufacturing process by 80 percent. This time-savings and increased design speed enables Ellis to rapidly explore a number of options for its customers, creating quality custom furniture that fits each customer’s precise needs and is built to last a lifetime.
