History


NFK was founded in 1983 by Nevil Kemp. Like so many new businesses of that era, it was a one man show. Nevs’ trusty old Commodore wagon would be loaded with tools and driven door to door, calling on glaziers throughout South East Queensland. The were no mobile phones, no same day or express couriers, no email, just an answering machine for calls during the day when Nev was out. On returning home of an evening, Nev would write up invoices, pack parcels for a general transporter to collect, load up the Commodore, and do it all again the following day.

Nevs’ sales skills meant that in a short time the business had grown to the point of needing a full time office person, so Nevs’ wife Barabara left a banking career behind and joined the fast growing business. During this time, the business was still operating from their family property, and few of their clients knew the “warehouse” was a disused pig shed.

By the late 80’s NFK was well established and recognised as a valued supplier to the Queensland glass industry. Again further growth demanded more staff and the eldest of Nev and Barb’s two kids, Deanna, joined mum in the office to manage the daily calls and bookwork.

In 1990, Nev & Barbs son Hayden joined the business and soon took over the sales position from Nev. During this time, the business outgrew the piggery so a 2000m2 building was purchased at Mansfield and NFK was moved to its current location.

After successfully managing NFK for more than 30 years, Nev decided it was time to start enjoying retirement and handed the management responsibility on to Hayden.

Today after almost 40 years trading, NFK continues to grow, supplying the glass industry nationwide.

Built on the strong foundation that Nev set in place, the future of NFK looks good.
