Global Design Local Production
In the early 2000s, shifts in Australia's furniture imports saw challenges arise from cheaper alternatives and replicas from China and extended freight times from Europe and the USA.
KE-ZU innovated. Responding to the evolving market needs, we met the demand for the finest international designs in Australia with an ingenious solution. Our 30+ years alliances with some of the best global suppliers facilitated local production of select licensed designs, uniting world-class aesthetics and quality with premium local manufacturing, assembly and upholstery.
