More About Us

Carpenters Warehouse, being a relatively new company has, in spite of facing all the challenges that a new business faces, managed to show positive growth since inception of operations in September 2014. This augurs well for the future. Given this very positive beginning, Carpenters Warehouse has the platform to grow in to a very successful business which in turn would also assist in providing employment to alleviate the high rate of unemployment in our country. The very nature of this business is that it is labour intensive so positive growth would naturally translate into more opportunities of employment.
