our local story – explore our Australian manufacturing facility

Step inside our purpose-built manufacturing facility in Melbourne, Australia and explore the process behind our high quality, affordable joinery solutions.

At kaboodle kitchen, we craft high quality, affordable cabinetry both internationally and right here in Australia.

Join us, as we take you through our local facility in Somerton, Victoria, where we create joinery for designer-look kitchens, laundries, home offices, bedrooms and more.

Through DIY-design and installation, our purpose is to encourage everyday Australians to turn their renovation dreams into an affordable reality.

Our first Melbourne manufacturing plant opened in 2010, with a brand-new purpose-built facility following in 2016. Paving the way for locally produced customisation, our state-of-the-art facility allows us to customise the widths or our cabinets, doors and panels.

We identified that Australian kitchens are all unique, but often need one or two customised cabinets to get a perfect fit.

By starting with our modular, off the shelf range in set-sizes, consumers can cleverly combine our locally-made customisable cabinets to get the best of both worlds. The result? A high quality, designer-look kitchen for a fraction of the price – like this nordic charm kitchen below!

While much of our product is sourced globally, allowing for the best quality in raw materials, scale and value, it’s on local ground that we offer a more tailored, personalised range in a variety of colourways and materials.

Our locally-made kaboodle offer includes leading melamine and thermoformed vinyl finishes in on trend colourways from around the globe. All with the affordability, convenience and speed you’d expect from a DIY-friendly range.

So how does our customisable program come to life?

We use state-of-the-art machinery to handle all the customisation requirements. All customised melamine products are cut and edged in our facility.

For customers looking for stylish profiles in a wide range of colours, doors and panels from our thermoformed range are sprayed with adhesive and placed on racks to dry.

Doors and panels are placed on the press table and cleaned, then vinyl is pulled and pressed. Customisable widths are available in all melamine and thermoformed doors in a modern profile.

We trim, sort, clean and package prior to dispatching to our Australian state based warehousing network.

As one of Australia and New Zealand’s largest national suppliers of kitchen cabinetry, we are conscious of our environmental impact and are taking steps toward building a better tomorrow, with a commitment to local manufacturing, supporting local jobs and the local community.

We’re proud to employ over 50 Victorians at this facility to bring the very best in value and customisation to life. It’s this continuous local investment in people that really does make it all possible.
