Our Story


Enhance Furniture is a division of Mako Group.

Inspired by the Kiwi DIY spirit and not having to pay for what you can do yourself, Mako Enterprises Limited was first established in 1995 by the Simpkin brothers, as Compac Furniture. We began manufacturing flat-pack furniture and soon saw a niche in the ready-made furniture market too. In 2005 we added an in-house panel laminating line called Paneltec Industries that gave us more versatility in manufacture, and allowed us to supply prefinished laminated MDF and plywood panels as well. In 2013 we added Enhance Accommodation Furniture, supplying specifically designed commercial furniture, and full interior commercial fit-outs throughout New Zealand and Australia.

With the backing of twenty years’ experience in manufacturing furniture, we are able to provide you with the benefits of buying direct from a New Zealand manufacturer. Twenty years of constant product development, production, customer service and delivery expertise is now also available direct to you.


Good design considers functionality, appearance, price and the environment. At Enhance our design team does just that. Every item, in every range is designed with you in mind. By listening to and analysing what our customers want, then designing the item to make maximum use of materials we not only reduce wastage but produce furniture which is attractive, functional and great value for money.

When you invest in furniture - quality matters. At Enhance Accommodation Furniture we fully understand this and follow strict in-house quality checking procedures. All materials are carefully scrutinised before being processed to ensure they meet our quality and environmental standards. Board products are made from 100% NZ pine fibre and are manufactured to the highest quality standards in the industry. Enhance only uses full density MDF to ensure maximum screw holding ability.

All hardware items are thoroughly tested by our product development team before being accepted for production. Laminates and thermoforming materials are imported from a number of leading suppliers in Germany, Spain and Taiwan and are subjected to exhaustive testing to ensure the durability standards such as the rigorous IKEA R4 standards are met. All laminating and thermoforming processes are completed right here in our factory ensuring quality control, dependable supply and cost efficiency.

Finally all ENHANCE cabinets are delivered fully assembled (unless specified) to make it easier for you - saving you time and frustration. It also gives you the assurance that your furniture has been constructed by a trained cabinet maker in our factory.
