Our business was born back in 1994 (formerly known as Mike's Woodshop) when we began manufacturing children’s furniture and toys from a skyline garage in Poroti, New Zealand.
After offering our local Whangarei primary schools the opportunity to purchase some painting easels, one of the local principals asked if we could custom make something similar to his specifications. We took up the challenge and have grown and diversified from a small range of educational furniture to a comprehensive catalogue of literally thousands of made to measure furniture items including tables, school desks, teacher podiums, whiteboard cabinets, storage systems and more.
Our furniture is designed and built to stand the test of time and can be customised to cater to all age groups including early childhood centres, primary and secondary schools and tertiary institutes.
Our product offering is not limited to the classroom either. We can supply a huge range of library furniture, excellent seating and office solutions for administration and waiting areas, staffroom furniture, custom cabinetry for kitchens and technology blocks and a huge range of storage systems to suit any space.
Much of the educational furniture we offer is manufactured in our custom built Whangarei based factory, which is fitted out with modern machinery that produces our product to a very high standard. We also have a range of New Zealand and international suppliers who produce furniture that complements our range, such as school chairs, stools and soft furnishings.
Over the years we have also developed an importing side to our business, whereby we bring in a range of quality furniture components to help keep our products competitive in the market. All our imported components and furniture have been very carefully selected, ensuring that they are of a higher specification than any locally made product we can source.
