History

The Cambridge, Epsom and Ascot Collections are manufactured exclusively for The Warehouse Ltd by Compac Furniture. Compac Furniture is a 100% New Zealand owned and operated company located in the Northland town of Dargaville. Inspired by the kiwi D.I.Y spirit and the idea of not having to pay for what you can do you yourself, brothers Mervyn and Ken Simpkin established the Compac brand in 1995: Compac = Components Packed. Compac Furniture has been manufacturing flat-pack furniture for The Warehouse Ltd since 1994.

Compac is a progressive company, continually investing in new plant, new processes and working with our customers and suppliers to improve our service and products. Today Compac Furniture has close to 20 years’ experience of furniture manufacturing and the factory now covering 6000 square metres making it one of New Zealand’s leading furniture manufacturers.

Compac Furniture has established a long standing reputation for providing quality furniture at excellent prices with a prompt delivery service.






Productivity

Productivity Matters...

When you want value – productivity matters. This has been one of the key points in Compac’s success in the competitive, low to mid-price range New Zealand furniture market. Compac has a long history of upgrading equipment and developing innovative solutions to reduce processing times and save costs. Substantial investments have been made not only on high speed CNC processing technology but also extensive material handling and conveying systems.






Quality

When you invest in furniture - quality matters. Low prices are no use if the things you buy don’t last. Compac Furniture has understood this since the very first shipment in 1995. Compac Furniture follows strict in-house quality checking procedures and is able to trace every finished product back to the raw materials used to make it. Compac backs all this with our 5 year guarantee.

All materials are carefully scrutinised before they are processed to ensure that they meet our strict quality and environmental standards.

Board products are made from 100% NZ pine fibre and are manufactured to the highest quality standards in the industry. Compac Furniture only uses full density MDF to ensure maximum screw holding ability.

All hardware items are thoroughly tested by our product development team before being accepted for production.

Laminates are imported from a number of leading suppliers in Germany, Spain and Taiwan and are subjected to exhaustive testing to ensure durability standards such as the rigorous IKEA R4 standards are met.

It’s all about bringing Quality and Value together.






Design

Good design considers functionality, appearance, price and the environment. At Compac Furniture our design team does just that. Every item, in every range is designed with you in mind. By listening to and analysing what our customers want, then designing the item to make maximum use of materials we not only reduce wastage but we can produce furniture which is attractive, functional and truly value for money - both for you and the environment.






Environment

We believe that good function, design and quality shouldn’t cost the earth. That goes for the environment too.

Compac Furniture is committed to reducing our impact on the world around us.
All wood based products come from sustainable managed plantation pine forests - a material that’s biodegradable, recyclable and renewable.

Formaldehyde in MDF? All living things produce formaldehyde. It’s the concentration and exposure to high levels of it which is suspected of being harmful. At Compac we use only E1 or E0 rated wood panels. These are the lowest formaldehyde emission ratings in any wood based panel products – even lower than natural pine. This means you can have full confidence that our products are a safe investment for home and also for the environment.
