About Korck Components
Korck components is a specialist contract wood turning and wood component manufacturing business that services different sectors of the woodworking and Décor industry
The business was originally started in 2009 by two brothers, Grant and Deon Africa, from very humble beginnings. The business then did all kinds of wood turning work just to stay alive. Over the next 6 years business progressed to a staff compliment of 8 employees servicing a wide variety of industries with turning work and related wooden components, i.e. from wholesale upholstery supply companies to Boutique type clients with bespoke lines of products and even producing one-off sculptures and pieces of artwork.
At the end of 2015, the business the Africa brothers started was forced to stop servicing the various industries they’d built relations with and closed their doors, thus leaving a hole in the market for the services they previously provided.
In February 2016 Korck Components Pty Ltd was established forming part of the KORCK Group of Companies with the aim of filling the gap left and servicing the various parts of the industry as a specialist contract wood turning and wooden components manufacturer and service to the industry.
Grant and Deon Africa remain involved in the life of Korck Components.
