About us

Sonkor was established in 1992, by Gerrie Kemp, the CEO of the company, for the main reason to supply cost effective furniture to clients. Gerrie realized that a lot of stock that were provided by his suppliers were in poor condition and needed repair work, before they could sell it to clients.

About six months later Sonkor started to manufacture their own furniture, to provide a cost effective and quality product to clients. Sonkor went from strength to strength and established furniture outlets under the brand name of OK Furnishers and Kemfurn. Sonkor currently have furniture outlets in Hartswater, Taung, Papierstad, Brandfort and Jan Kemp Dorp.

The business grew and more products and services were added. Instead of just manufacturing wood furniture, they started to manufacture beds and mattresses, they supply various wood products, installation and design of built in cupboards, hardware products, upholstery products and more. They have state of the art design software to design built in cupboards for your dream home and will provide you with a free design, if they supply the wood and accessories.

Sonkor’s Ceo, Gerrie Kemp did some research and realized that it is more cost effective to import certain materials and products, for the manufacturing processes and to provide more cost effective products to clients. He established a company Sonkor Express for these purposes and provide home improvement products, catering equipment, forklifts and basic forklift parts to clients.

Sonkor are also wholesale suppliers to businesses in the Free State and Northern Cape. Any person or business is welcome to make contact with Sonkor to determine what our large product range entails or if we can supply your business with services and products.
