About What Knots 

In 1992, whilst operating from a small backyard shed, little did the owners realise that the seeds were being sewn for what would become What Knots Pty Ltd. Initially manufacturing American style rustic wooden giftware and small furniture pieces, it wasn't until an order for 5,000 lineal metres of picture mouldings over a six month period was secured, that the fledgling enterprise ventured into the manufacture of picture mouldings. Business soon flourished as more orders were secured which lead to the relocation into a 2500 sq. ft factory in Melton in July 1993. Now a full time operation, What Knots employed additional staff to help fulfill production commitments which included exporting sizable orders to a Singapore based company.

Thereafter, business growth continued and the need arose for larger premises. What Knots relocated again in June of 1994 into a 6000 sq. ft complex at Bacchus Marsh. Such was the expanse of business that additional staff were employed to keep up with demand. In 1996, capital investment provided the purchase and installation of a 5 header Profile Moulder and in that same year production of giftware and furniture manufacturing ceased. The business now concentrated solely on the production of picture mouldings. Strong and steady sales growth resulted in the acquisition of a second premises in August 1996 that would cater for What Knot's Painting and Framing divisions. However, in October 1998 the framing division had outgrown their new premises and a third complex in Bacchus Marsh was secured to cater for the ever expanding production. Export sales continued to flourish and so to did the business. In July 1998, What Knots relocated their entire operation into a purpose built, 15,000 sq ft state of art complex in Bacchus Marsh.

In January 2002, a new automated spray painting line and stacking machine was installed, followed shortly thereafter of the purchase and installation of a Profile Sander and Splitter as well as additions to the Spray Painting production equipment in 2003. Construction of new offices and lunchroom commenced to prepare for the current offices to be converted into a retail and wholesale showroom. This was in response to continued retail sales growth.

What Knot's range of products at present include picture mouldings in either raw of assorted finishes of colour, stains and lacquers. Production (bulk) picture framing on a wholesale level. This includes calendar holder frames which have an enormous international potential, mirrors, prints and memorabilia. What Knots also are wholesale and retail custom framers and can produce small furniture and display items under contract as well as offering custom designed timber products for specific requirements. What Knots can provide the highest quality item at an extremely competitive price. 

As of may 2016, What Knot's purchased their own Laser Engraving machine, which has the capacity to engrave on a number of materials such as wood, vinyl plastic and metal. Come on down for a quote to any of these great services offered by this fantastic family run, family friendly business.
