Woodworking is in our DNA
Founder and CEO, Gys Potgieter, has been a woodworker since the age of 14 years old. He has owned several wood product factories and recently followed his passion to launch Kuni, making hand-crafted and one-of-a-kind wood creations. Few know woodworking and product manufacturing as well as he does. Gys, together with our professional sales team, have a wealth of experience and expertise in the woodworking field.
We are always happy to chat over a cup of coffee and share production advice to our valued customer. With a long history in the woodworking industry, we know the right machine for the job, and most importantly; the machines we sell are the ones we would use ourselves.
