Our Company History


JB Woodworking was established as a small, family-run business, manufacturing solid pine furniture for the local and export market.

Their philosophy from the start was to manufacture and supply furniture at reasonable prices with a focus on quality, functionality and wood craftsmanship.

As the demand for furniture grew, so the factory expanded and eventually moved to its current location on Boswerker Street in the Knysna Industrial area.

Now housed in the 1 300m² factory, and under new ownership, JB Furniture Manufacturers have the infrastructure and capacity to offer a wide range of quality manufactured and finished Interior Furniture products.

All production and new developments at JB Furniture Manufacturers are now led by Russel Burland and Kimberley Snook who have introduced a more modern approach to furniture design and manufacturing techniques – yet still show respect for and appreciate the traditional manufacturing methods.

Russel, Kimberley and their management staff, have cultivated within the JB Furniture manufacturing team, a great love and appreciation for innovative design and quality craftsmanship.
