Testimonials

As the CEO of a popular and expanding Restaurant Franchise, the Cattle Baron Group of Steakhouses have enjoyed an excellent relationship with Woodbender over the past 30-plus years of doing business together. Woodbender is our dedicated supplier of restaurant chairs and tables and they have offered a consistently excellent standard of both service and product throughout our period of association. The durability of Woodbender’s furniture is borne out by the fact that many Cattle Barons are still successfully utilising Woodbender products – even after many seasons of busy trading over the past decade or more! Woodbender’s chairs offer both comfort and durability – all presented in stylish and contemporary designs and their table designs offer us very practical solutions for maximising seating capacity. We look forward to many more years of well-seated (excuse the pun) business liaisons with Woodbender.

Woodbender is one of the best suppliers we have dealt with on our projects. The level of professionalism and craftsmanship is second to none. Deadlines are always met and they go out of their way to accommodate custom changes when required. We still have Woodbender furniture at some of our commercial high traffic projects which have been holding up for 8-10 years. If I had to summarise Woodbender in two words, I would say “Solid Quality”.

I have been contemplating an office renovation for some time. After shopping around I settled on Woodbender. All my correspondence with them were met with speedy responses and they were very helpful and engaging. I visited their impressive showroom to sample the various finishes and upholstery. I opted for the Kariba chairs and Toscana table which arrived two weeks after my order was placed. I was most impressed by the quality and craftsmanship of the furniture and the sleek design. They definitely make a statement. Thanks for your great service!!!

Woodbender has always delivered quality furniture, with a hint of contemporary mixed into old time favourites. Their beautifully designed products never fail to complement any interior design. Excellent service, timeless pieces and advice that never fail is what makes Woodbender my reliable source.

Over many years of using Woodbender across hundreds of restaurants, their expertise in furniture manufacturing is clearly evident through the quality and robustness of their products in what is normally an extremely hostile environment for furniture. We never have any hesitation in specifying any products supplied by Woodbender due to their long track record of problem free installations with little or no failures or quality issues. In addition to this, their service is always efficient, friendly and reliable and we look forward to working with Woodbender for many years to come.

Nzuri Interiors, located in Pretoria, specialises in Office Interiors. We started using Woodbender two years ago when we had to quote on a restaurant. From the start during our showroom visit, their professional approach was a breath of fresh air. The team assisted us in assuring that the correct, value for money products were supplied to our clients. The quoting and ordering processes, which sometimes can be very tedious, was simplified by the modern Woodbender system. Their regular communication also assisted us in keeping our clients informed. To crown it all, an on-time deliveries ensured for very happy clients! They come highly recommended.

Over the past several years we have used Woodbender for both residential and corporate projects. We love the professionalism they offer by way of making sure the admin / order side of things run 100% smoothly, quotes are clear and precise as are delivery dates. Quality checks are clearly in place before any item leaves the factory. Very few companies under promise and over deliver, Woodbender stands strongly by this sentiment. Always a pleasure working with Niel and his team.

When it comes to excellent quality, customer service, professional staff, customization and workmanship of furniture, Woodbender is the only company that comes to mind. Ever since TOTALCARE SA has done business with Woodbender, in supplying furniture for our Care Centres, we have never been disappointed. The team responds very quickly in providing quotes and giving guidance in terms of style and colour. The after sales care is just as brilliant! We are looking forward in doing a lot more business with Woodbender in the future.
