Bentlor Design Joinery

- A brief history -
Bentlor Design Joinery was initially formed as a subsidiary of main business Bentlor Furniture, which began in 1984 and grew immensely from 2 employees to a team of 40 with factories nationwide and a base in Wollongong. Bentlor Furniture soon established itself as a major supplier of quality bedroom furniture, servicing major retailers such as Cap’t Snooze, Forty Winks, Bed Shed and Harvey Norman.

Bentlor Design Joinery and its predecessor began to evolve; from building an average of two domestic kitchens a week, to an escalated volume of commercial projects as major Sydney builders took notice.
In 2008 after 24 years, Bentlor Furniture closed its doors to focus on Bentlor Design Joinery and the new market opportunities in commercial joinery.

Channeling the same expertise in joinery construction and leveraging on an established reputation, Bentlor Design Joinery has charted a path of success over the years.

Working primarily with medium to large builders who want reliable contractors, Bentlor Design Joinery provides a comprehensive range of custom joinery, from design through to installation. The team of 21 staff and 10 contract installers fulfill commercial contracts range from educational institutions to hospitality venues and aged care facilities.

Bentlor Design Joinery operates the straightforward principle that if it’s worth doing, it’s worth doing well; and it is this mantra has resulted in loyal clientele and continued business growth as a leading custom joinery specialist.
