The Alpine Story
Our story starts back in the early 1970’s when we began buying and reselling second-hand kitchen cabinets and bathroom products. In very little time, the demand outgrew our supply so we decided to invest in equipment to start manufacturing our own cabinets. We began small, offering only a few different vanity designs. Then, once we had a better knowledge of manufacturing under our belt, we moved into a range of cash and carry kitchen and laundry cabinets that our customers could easily install themselves.
Over the next 25 years, the business grew into a 2500m2 factory that employed over 30 people and produced one of the largest ranges of custom kitchens and bathroom cabinets in Western Australia.
In the early 2000’s, rising manufacturing costs and overseas competition meant that it was no longer competitive to keep producing in Perth, so we looked to move our production overseas. We were lucky enough to find a factory in China that is owned by an Australian businessman that supplied bathroom vanity cabinets to NSW. We shared our knowledge and designs of kitchen cabinets and started a partnership to manufacture the Alpine pre-assembled cabinet range. The factory had never produced kitchen cabinets before and now it is a major part of their business. Our designs were copied and reproduced by other companies and are sold right through Australia and New Zealand.
