WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. – E.F. San Juan Inc. has a well-earned reputation of creating stunning architectural moulding, millwork and cabinetry. The third-generation family-owned business specializes in custom residential, historic restoration and commercial projects throughout Florida and the Southeast, as well as across the United States.
Over the years, the Youngstown, Fla.-based company has evolved from its reliance on a Craftsman table saw and shaper to having a cadre of advanced woodworking equipment including three CNC routers and three CNC moulders.
E.F. San Juan’s resilience was tested in 2018 when its plant was destroyed by Hurricane Michael. The San Juan family’s response was to rebuild the facility, invest in more productive equipment and implement best practices for improved workflow.
At the full-day Wood Pro Conference scheduled for April 12, the father and son team of Edward San Juan, president,
and Eddie San Juan, operations manager, will discuss how they have integrated CNC technology into their third-generation company’s production operations. They will cover key considerations that go into adopting and succeeding with CNC equipment.
Their presentation, “Considerations for Adapting CNC Equipment,” will also include an interactive conversation with the audience that will address CNC benefits and pitfalls.
Other presentations of the Wood Pro Conference include:
- Opening Keynote: State of the Industry & Economic Overview, presented by Chris Kuehl, Managing Director / Co-FounderArmada Corporate Intelligence;
- Woodworking’s New Workforce, presented by Marc Sanderson, president, Wilkie Sanderson; and
- Path to Professionalism, presented by Will Sampson, Editorial Director, FDMC.
The conference will be capped by a tour of Closet Lifestyle's factory and showroom.
