South Australian Family Owned & Operated

The Farquhar name has been synonymous with kitchens for over 40 years. Having evolved and grown from a simple cabinet-making service in 1978 to a respected, full-scale kitchen operation. Family involvement has been key to the growth and evolution of the company, with 4 generations of Farquhar involved in the business.

In addition to kitchens, Farquhar produces cabinets for the whole home including bathrooms, ensuite’s, walk-in-robes, linens, laundries, studies, garages and more.

Our Lonsdale kitchen manufacturing factory

Despite what you may think, many kitchen companies in Adelaide do not necessarily produce their kitchens here in South Australia. As a leading Adelaide kitchen manufacturer we have a dedicated kitchen and cabinet assembly factory located in Lonsdale. KT3 (Kitchens To The Trade) is the back-bone of the Farquhar kitchens operation, allowing seamless integration between our showroom and factory.

With over 8000 square metres of factory floorspace our kitchen factory produces cabinets, benchtops, thermo PVC doors and more for homes across South Australia and beyond. Housed with the latest cabinet-making machiney such as CNC flat-bed routers, vinyl-wrap door press, edge-banders and much more the factory is a key strength when choosing a kitchen company.

In addition to producing cabinetry for the Farquhar retail arm, we also manufacture kitchens for other retail outlets, including U-Install-It Kitchens, our DIY kitchen alternative.

Cutting Edge Kitchen Manufacturing Technology

As one of Australia’s leading kitchen manufacturers, Farquhar and KT3 – Kitchens To The Trade continually invest in new technology, equipment and machinery. Our goal is to ensure that our kitchen manufacturing maintains the highest possible standards in quality, efficiency and most importantly, safety. Our machinery and CNC software is capable of producing cabinets and kitchen products to exact measurements with speed and accuracy, meaning your kitchen can be made fully customised to your requirements. Through highly specialised proprietary computer systems and expertly skilled operators you can be sure your new kitchen will be of the highest quality.

Employment & Future Generations

Beyond the investment in the machinery and technology, we at Farquhar consider our greatest investment and asset as our people. Across the board from the design and sales staff, the machinists to the cabinet-makers installing, we believe that it’s the faces, the enthusiasm and personality of our staff that ensures success. Currently we have over 210 staff employed by Farquhar group of companies.

Each year we take on new apprentice cabinet-makers, providing a pathway for young South Australian’s to learn on the job, working in a progressive, multifaceted industry. Our job pathways have seen staff grow from sweeping the factory floor to managing cabinet-making teams. We’re incredibly proud of the hard-work and dedication our staff show and the number of long-term employees is testament to the mutual respect shown within the organisation.

Support Local Manufacturing

When you buy South Australian, chances are you’re buying from someone who knows someone who knows someone who knows you.

As a local manufacturer we compete fiercely with huge multinationals, cheap imports from Asia, ever-changing economic fluctuations and government regulations. Despite punching well above our weight, we continue to improve every facet of our design, sales and selections process, our manufacturing process, our delivery and installation service and overall quality of service to ensure South Australian customers have a fantastic local product they can be proud of.

We rely on the support of you, the customer, along with the South Australian business and trade community to survive and prosper.

The decisions South Australians make about where they buy and what they buy can help other South Australians in keeping a job or finding a job.
