Good people making
In 1995 two Dargaville brothers decided to combine their complementary talents and energies. One, Ken Simpkin, was a qualified joiner with established customers for his products. The other, Mervyn Simpkin, had a head for figures and a strong entrepreneurial streak. Compac Furniture was formed.
28 years later Compac Group is a flourishing multi-faceted business with three generations of the Simpkin family contributing to our ongoing success and growth.

Compac Group –
The Compac Group team are good people making great products.
Our diverse, hard-working staff (from designers to IT; machine operators, to hand-assemblers) put their hearts and talents into what they do. As a family company, that’s something we really appreciate and value.
Our Group culture is based on respect and support – aiming to bring out the best in each other, every day.
Dargaville – Our Home
Compac Group’s 7,500 square metre factory, assembly plant and offices is situated at 10 Mako Street, Dargaville in the north of the North Island of New Zealand.
Dargaville is our family’s hometown. Has been for over 27 years.
The thriving area also provides Compac Group with significant operating advantages. A stable population is combined with relatively low operating costs and reliable access for delivery of raw materials, and routes to market.
Dargaville is a great place to live and work. We wouldn’t want to be anywhere else.
