Mahogany Industries (Fiji) Limited was acquired by Vision Group Limited in February 2012 and is now a wholly owned division of VIL. MIFL commenced operations in October 2004 and its 2,250sq mt factory is located in the Navutu Industrial Estate, Lautoka. Currently the Company employs over 100 employees.
MIF specializes in manufacturing high quality furniture, cabinetry and joinery works and is the preferred supplier of high quality furniture to the hotel, resort and high end residential market. Mahogany Industries Fiji offer services ranging from customized one-off items through to complete large scale fit outs and projects. The division employs highly skilled designers, joiners and technicians.
MIF has invested in a fully computerized Hilder Brunner drying kiln with a 50 cubic meter load capacity. The sawdust extraction system collects and converts all sawdust into a solid briquette, which in turn is used as the fuel source to fire the kiln. This allows to both minimize waste, whilst ensuring the exact moisture content in the timber. MIF has also recently installed a latest CNC Machine which has increased the versatility of the product range it can manufacture. MIF exports to New Zealand and Australian markets and other regional South Pacific Countries continues to grow year on year. MIF primarily uses “Sweitenia Macrophylla” or Fiji Mahogany to manufacture its products. This timber is from Fiji’s sustainable plantation forestry program. MIF is committed to working with the Fiji government, land owners and other private enterprise groups, to safeguard this resource and ensure it remains for the benefit of future generations and in perpetuity. MIF also operate a separate manufacturing line to supply upholstery and hardwood furniture for retailing through Courts stores. The in – house manufacturing of the Courts line of furniture, have resulted in significant improvement in quality and design of the furniture range.
MIF is also seeking to develop a range of knock down and flat pack furniture with export potential to the New Zealand, Australian and other regional South Pacific markets.
