John Lewis | A Case Study


The elimination of errors and solving the customers problems.

John Lewis wanted to offer their customer a premium curtain track and pole product for made to measure and bay windows.  John Lewis were looking for:

  • Products that were made to measure offsite ready for their installers/customers to fit.
  • Zero errors in production.
  • Guarantee that bay window products would be correct, even if the information and measurements supplied were incorrect.
  • A lead-time in under 7 days to fit with their express service.
  • A range to cover hand drawn, corded and electric tracks & poles in a range of colour options.
  • Simplified ordering process.


Bradbury Tracks were able to solve these problems for John Lewis and:

  • Recommend a range that was perfectly placed for their customers producing over £2,000,000 of sales each year (and growing)
  • Guarantee a correct first-time method of bending curtain tracks.
  • Provide bay window software that checks customers or professional’s measurements ensuring they are correct.
  • Implement lean efficiencies to reduce lead-times to an average of 3.9 days
  • Process orders electronically including the bay window diagrams to simplify ordering.
  • Automated the process to eliminate human errors.
