Who We Are And What We Do

Barker Street is a superior quality, high volume, contract furniture manufacturer. We manufacture corporate office furniture, hospitality furniture, as well as specialised furniture and bullet proof teller counters for the banking industry.

Barker Street was founded in 1986, with the establishment of a sheet metal engineering factory. This factory, with its own automated powder coating plant, produces steel components for the office furniture industry. A decade later, the company expanded its capability and product offering by building a sophisticated and well-equipped woodworking factory manufacturing contract furniture. Soon thereafter, established an upholstery factory producing soft seating as well as partitions and screening systems. We currently operate out of 11 000 m² of commercial/industrial space.

The Barker Street Advantage

Barker Street’s in-house diversified manufacture and specialisation has been the secret to its success. Being self-sufficient gives the company total control of all processes. In turn, this speeds up
production immensely, allowing us to be incredibly cost effective, and enabling us to obtain the highest quality standards making Barker Street a highly competitive manufacturer.

We are also in the process of getting ISO 9001 & ISO 14001 certified.


The Barker Street group of companies today is 60% black owned (30.7% black female owned) through the shareholding by the wholly black owned Brighton Capital investment company.

As a Level 2 “empowering supplier” we offer you 125% recognition for your business procurement.
