German to English translations [PRO] Marketing - Furniture / Household Appliances
German term or phrase:Manufakturfertigung
The customer is a master craftsman who makes kitchen furniture and uses the following phrase:-
das Wertschema für Qualität, Balance und Manufakturfertigung.
I`m considering \"factory production\" but I don`t like it because his products are made by hand. Any ideas out there ? Thanks in advance
The big question: is the furniture handmade or does the man run a factory? I guess he wants to stress "hand-made" quality.
What's wrong with "manufacture"? That word allows nearly as many
interpretations as the German "Manufakturfertigung".

Explanation: True, bespoke is usually used in connection with made to measure clothing - but it need not be restricted to clothing. In a wider sense it can mean `personal´ or `specific´.
