Two Young Kiwi Entrepreneurs Disrupting The NZ Bed Industry

After 3 years of providing high quality beds at a low price for students, The Flatpack Company has now expanded into a nationwide market. Starting November 12th, The Flatpack Co. beds will be made available to the general public across New Zealand.

Founded in 2019 by Otago University students Angus Syme and Cameron Leigh, The Flatpack Co. has sold over 5,000 beds to students with affordability over profit.

Syme said her own student experiences struggling with high costs were the driving force behind the company.

“The bed market in New Zealand is significantly overpriced. It is time for kiwis to get a chance to buy quality products at honest, affordable prices. Since we operate as a direct-to-consumer model, this is exactly what we can offer, ”said Syme.

The duo recently launched their offerings nationwide and are already seeing high demand, which Leigh attributes to the lack of affordability in the New Zealand bed market and their dedicated marketing approach.

“The New Zealand bed market is saturated with either overpriced quality beds or horribly made cheap beds.”

The FlatPack Company has resolved a fundamental problem in the New Zealand bed market by combining affordability with real convenience, and is now moving its focus to the rest of the country.

“Now that we’ve helped over 2,500 students across New Zealand, we’re ready to help everyone across the country find affordable, quality beds, and we can’t wait,” said Leigh.

Now that they have broken the doors into the nationwide industry, Syme says will give New Zealanders what they really want and need.

“New Zealand’s bed industry is long overdue, and that’s exactly what we’re going to do.”
