Crafting Australian Made furniture fit for any workplace setting

For over 100 years, Workspace Commercial Furniture has transformed workplaces with its emphasis on local design and manufacturing excellence.

Crafting Australian Made furniture fit for any workplace setting

It has taken a pandemic to trigger some deeper thought on how Australia can stand on its own with concerns over our reliance on global supply chains and brands. The many benefits of buying Australian Made have been brought into sharp focus as consumers adapt to a changing economic landscape and a new era of uncertainty.

A leader in Australian manufacturing and design for over 110 years, Workspace Commercial Furniture has been championing the virtues of Australian Made products since its inception. The proudly Australian owned and operated brand specialises in project-based furniture solutions for commercial, office, education, hospitality, health, aged care and accommodation environments, with a complete end-to-end service that truly sets it apart.

Offering an unparalleled customer experience, Workspace’s services encompass everything from product design and development through to planning, manufacture, despatch, freight and installation. Crafting a wide range of furniture solutions, including chairs, tables, filing cabinets and ottomans, Workspace leverages its inhouse design, research and development teams, and local manufacturing capabilities to ensure each product maintains its reputation for quality and innovation.

“Manufacturing our products in Australia ensures our clients are receiving quality products, made from quality materials. It also allows us to have complete control over the entire design and manufacturing process,” says Tom Clark, Chief Executive of Workspace. “We are proud to offer an extensive range of tested and certified products with proven strength, durability, stability and function.”

Workspace offers a range of 1200 standard products with the ability to customise all products to suit any client requirement. Many of their projects consist of large workstation and office station fit outs, with the most popular products being their workstation ranges and range of task and executive chairs.

Not only is the company Australia’s largest diversified commercial furniture manufacturer, but they are also proud to offer products that are Australian Made certified, bearing the familiar green and gold kangaroo logo.

“Purchasing products sporting the iconic Australian Made logo helps consumers understand the broader implications of their purchase,” explains Clark. “Not only are they supporting our individual

business, their purchase is also supporting our network of local suppliers and local employees, which in turn positively impacts the overall Australian manufacturing industry.”

Workspace’s commitment to Australian manufacturing and local employment is evident in their 12,500m2 manufacturing facility in South Australia, which allows the company to undertake projects of varying size both nationally and internationally. Workspace has over 160 employees around the country and also runs a local apprenticeship program, where the company employs five industry-capable apprentices yearly.  Their showrooms are located in Adelaide, Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Canberra.

“Here at Workspace, we resonate closely with the attributes of the Australian Made logo. Whether it be manufacturing our products in a sustainably-certified warehouse or providing jobs within the local community; our core values are strengthened by showcasing the green and gold kangaroo on our products.”
