The Mako Story

Inspired by the Kiwi DIY spirit and not having to pay for what you can do yourself, Mako Enterprises was first established in 1995 by the Simpkin brothers, as Compac Furniture. 

We began manufacturing flat-pack and soon saw a niche in the ready-made furniture market too, now supplying retailers nationwide. Over the years we added an in-house panel laminating line called Paneltec Industries that gave us more versatility in manufacture. And recently, Enhance Accommodation Furniture, supplying commercial furniture fit-outs throughout NZ and Australia.
