Update for our beloved clients. Being a service based business we have been closely monitoring the Corona Virus issue and we have put in place a number of measures to ensure that our team are clean.
- We have supplied our installers and wardrobe designers with face masks – so if you would like them to wear one or would like one to wear while they are onsite then, please let them know they are happy to accomodate this request.
- Although difficult to find these days we are supplying the team with disinfectant and they are regularly washing there hands before and after each client visit. All our installers are employees of our business making this easier to manage.
- Any staff who have international travel planned we have informed them that they will not be allowed back to work for the quarantine period of 14 days.
- We’ve engaged external consultants from the Timber Industry Association of Australia (TIAA) and also Furnishing Industry Assosiation of Australia (FIAA) to ensure our processes are better than best practice.
- We also provide an option to quote over the phone using FaceTime or email. All we need is the length and height of the space and this method of quoting is an option. However I confirm that all of our staff are corona free! Except on a Sunday when they may enjoy a cold Corona Beer…. 😉
We are continuing to supply awesome wardrobes for our clients and continuing to do what we love with no change to supply at this stage. Thank you for your continued support! If you have any questions about our policies, please call us on 9971 8802.
Love and blessing from the Fox team!

Our vision is to create a cabinetry manufacturing business that is totally sustainable with no waste going to landfill and powered fully by solar energy. Even our food scraps are being used for compost in the factory garden!
As at the start of 2020, we are running the business off 94% solar power and send approx 40% of our offcuts back to the manufacturer to be re-purposed and recycled into new particle board. We also recycle 100% of our soft plastics and cardboard waste diverting this away from landfill to be re-purposed and re-used. We’ve replaced all lighting with energy efficient LED lighting.
With these business changes and investments we are saving the equivalent of 22,057 litres of petrol per year / 25,068 kg of coal per year / planting 1,328 trees per year and this is just the beginning!
Our goal for 2020 is to find a solution to recycling MDF board or use a different substrate which can be recycled safely (we believe this is an industry wide issue because it isn’t currently able to be recycled safely) and to find a cost efficient solution to change our fleet from petrol/gas to electricity. Stay tuned for progress updates on our sustainability mission during 2020.

Life can be pretty hectic. Whether it’s jobs, schools, children or sport we spend a lot of time rushing around between one task and the next.
