Starex Manufacturing: Your Natural Choice

Our furniture is beautifully made using sustainable materials, ensuring it stands the test of time to avoid ending up in landfill.

We utilise world-class manufacturing methods to create long-lasting & premium furniture, while ensuring our range also maintains its design look & appeal. 

It is not uncommon to hear from clients about Starex furniture that is still going strong in their learning environment after 20-30+ years, as opposed to fast furniture that quickly breaks and needs to be replaced over and over!

We strongly believe wood to be the future of building materials because of its physical properties and natural origins. 

"We have a much loved pukapuka shelf and storage. Our kindergarten has been open for 31 years, and the head teacher at the time, who now relieves for us, remembers purchasing it not long after opening, so it has been going for around three decades and still going strong!
