Making furniture with a positive impact

Who we are

Amaroo is an Aboriginal word meaning ‘beautiful place’

AWM Amaroo emerged in 2020 as a collaborative effort between Dan Manson, a descendant of the Arabana people in South Australia, and Ant Scotts & Ric Lewarne from AWM.  

Our vision is to not only transform workplaces into beautiful spaces but also to make a positive impact on the lives of young Aboriginal individuals and local communities. 

For tens of thousands of years, Aboriginal Australians have valued community, sustainability, functionality, harmony and social interaction. These are all values that successful workplaces embrace and they inspire our manufacturing and business philosophy at every level. 

Our goal

Empowering Indigenous Australians & Local Communities

At AWM Amaroo, our mission is to leave our country and this planet in a better state than we found it. We firmly believe in supporting our home and the communities we serve, as it is not just the right thing to do but an essential responsibility. 

It’s our way of acknowledging and giving back to Australia’s First People and our communities in a real and meaningful way, but it’s also about a genuine cultural exchange and providing opportunities for each other. 

How we make it happen

Crafting success through community support and cultural exchange.

To achieve our mission, we have employed a range of effective strategies. Our partnership with AWM provides our clients access to premier Australian made products crafted in our well-established manufacturing facilities. In line with our commitment to the local economy, we ensure that 95% of the materials used in our furniture and joinery are sourced domestically, and we actively collaborate with suppliers to recycle or reuse any surplus materials. 

As a registered company with Supply Nation, we place a strong emphasis on working with local suppliers and businesses throughout the entire fit-out process. We take pride in supporting over 120 Australian companies, either through our factory operations or during installations. Moreover, when operating in regional areas, we prioritise engaging local companies and contractors to directly benefit the local community through our projects. 

Giving back

Making a Difference

At AWM Amaroo, we believe in going beyond aesthetics – we are dedicated to making furniture with a positive impact.  

Hence, we have partnered with the Kari Foundation, and a portion of our fit-out proceeds have gone towards funding their invaluable swimming programs, offering free lessons to children in Aboriginal communities as well as supplying backpacks for kids at the beginning of the school term.

KARI is Australia’s largest Indigenous not-for-profit organisation. Established in 1999, KARI has supported the Aboriginal community by delivering quality programming and services. KARI employ over 170 people, with approximately 80% of their staff identifying as Aboriginal. They strive to offer a continuum of award-winning services that all begin at general community engagement. Their commitment to providing high quality, sustainable services and programs that benefit their community is unwavering. 

As we continue to grow, we actively explore additional avenues to support indigenous and local communities, as well as contribute to the development of a circular economy. Initiatives we are looking to get involved with include collaborating with local charities to aid victims of domestic violence and incorporating talented Aboriginal artisans within our workplace solutions, fostering a sense of togetherness and empowerment.
