Kitchen & Renovation Concepts
Started in 2010, Kitchen & Renovation Concepts is a ‘one stop shop’ for kitchen and renovation products. They are now the largest supplier of domestic retail kitchens in Dubbo, offering products for both the DIY and custom market.
Although kitchen products are the core focus of the business, they also supply laundry, bathroom, wardrobe and commercial joinery as well as a range of complementary products such as tiles and floating floors. As well as selling kitchen and renovation products, they also offer installation of their products by their team of qualified and professional cabinetmakers.
Kitchen & Renovation Concepts is different from most conventional kitchen joineries in that they offer both a flat pack and custom option. This allows them to offer products that are affordable and yet cater for individual customer requirements.
They have also just installed a Biesse CNC manufacturing system for our cabinetry. This will enable computer assisted automatic production of cabinets. This will mean they are less reliant on imported product and will gradually be able to change to a product fully manufactured in Australia, creating Australian jobs and supporting Australian manufacturing at a time when many manufacturing businesses are closing. This machine will be the only one of its kind in New South Wales outside of the Sydney metropolitan area and will see the business leading the field in innovation in regional New South Wales.

Julan Soft Furnishings
Judith Roberts had been in the furnishing manufacturing industry for a number of years before retiring to have children. One day her old boss rang her and asked for her help with some jobs. Soon other decorators she used to work with found out she was working again and started asking her to work for them again too.
At this point Judith was in such high demand that she bought her own machinery and equipment and started up her own business from home. She gradually expanded to the store and warehouse location she is in today.
Julan Soft Furnishings specialize in all things windows – curtains, blinds and all the little accessories that go with them. This includes bedspreads, cushions and all the other little things that make a house a home.
The difference at Julan is that they manufacture their own curtains onsite, and every sales person can complete the manufacturing process. Judith says it allows each staff member to understand how fabrics work, how things look and to make sure the work is done right.
Judith started off doing her books using a spreadsheet, but soon realized that she needed something more advanced due to her business’ needs.
Her accountant suggested that she use an accounting system on the computer, but the one he recommended was too difficult for her and she became very frustrated. Her accountant then introduced her to Cashflow Manager about 9 years ago. Because it was very simple, she found it very easy to use in her business.
