Even though only the highest quality equipment and supplies are being used, Arto Martha treasures its staff as one of its biggest assets. We currently employ four full time personnel supplemented by contractors. Although all permanent personnel are utilized in the administrative capacity of a formal company frame work, all staff is well trained and very capable of producing high quality products.
Martha is a founding member and currently tasked with looking after the well being of the company in the capacity of general manager. As the person with the vision for this company she is also tasked with pricing structures and is part of the quality assurance team.
Martha possesses a diploma in arts and was previously employed as an inventory manager.
Although of a technical education Dirk has a history in the financial and marketing sector but more recently in business analysis and project management. He is currently tasked with governing the direction of Arto Martha as well as financial planning.
All contractors are hand picked and work on site under permanent staff’s supervision. We have the ability to outsource tasks like glass and backboard cutting to selected suppliers who are involved in the framing industry and are currently used as suppliers to Arto Martha.
Due to our emphasis on quality, a cut off point for daily production by permanent staff was set at twenty five canvases, A2 on average, thirty certificate sized frames with matt and thirty five desktop sized picture frames. This can easily doubled by the use of our contractors in case of larger orders. More personalized framing with regards to boxing, i.e. rugby shirts etc, requires more time and is set at average of four per day.
As we have working agreements related to framing services i.e. engraving, restoration printing, etc all is seamlessly integrated into our offerings with a single point of access.
Even though all suppliers claim to sell high quality products we accept the responsibility to ensure that every purchase is quality assured before allowing it in to our stock. We do not purchase from the emerging eastern or the so called “cheap” market. Only manufacturers with a proven record of quality are used. All matt board is acid free and our glass is ultraviolet resistant.
With a variety in excess of 2000 frames and 1000 matt types we are convinced that we will be able to serve your needs.
