Machine Head 01
  born from necessity

The origin story of the great australian shelf begins with our family of five living in a relatively small home needing to store all those things that a family accumulates.

Our house had only a small amount of existing storage when we moved in and being very bespoke in its design standard sized bookshelves and cupboards would not have been a practical , efficient or cost effective solution.

Fortunately , I had experience in the field and access to arguably Australia's best commercial joinery factory.

The joinery factory in question was built by my brother over the past 30 years and employs world's best practices in state of the art manufacturing.

MDC is a premium high tech manufacturing facility started by my bother in 1984, I joined him shortly after and have worked directly for and indirectly with the business ever since.

The factory is based the European model of a " fully integrated manufacturing cell " employing the latest technology from Germany and Italy specially adapted to low volume bespoke manufacturing.

These systems offer extreme flexibility, allowing us to design virtually any product to suit a client's needs, knowing that it can be manufactured with precision and quality at the best possible cost.

The factory has achieved full ISO 9001 quality management and ISO14001 environmental management certification, maximising the finish of all its products whilst minimising the energy and waste required to produce them.

Again this is world's best practice that leaves the imports from Asia far, far behind.
