creating comfortable environments to exceed your expectations

Our Story

history of success built on solid foundations

The history of Archer Concepts dates back to the mid 1900’s, when founder Brian Don began crafting timber in to beautiful dining chairs and tables in the small town of Kaiwaka in Northland for the domestic industry and exporting to Australia.  As time moved on, Brian’s three sons Graeme, Russell and Mark took over as Directors and in the early 2000’s saw the increasing need of specialised quality, functional and NZ made furniture for the Agedcare, Healthcare and Retirement market.  Our in-depth understanding of the specialised requirements of this market expanded rapidly as did our range and clients and soon saw us venturing into the Hospitality & Accommodation sector and then the specialised Medical industry.  

Using our 30 plus years experience has seen the business develop into today’s successful group of three divisions – Archer Medical, Archer Care and Archer Hospitality. We’re still the same company with the same owners and the same mission being to create comfortable environments by helping the care and hospitality sector deliver the best possible experience and care to their clients with safe and comfortable furniture solutions.

But, while much has changed, the foundations of the company have been built on delivering the small things that make a big difference to you, our clients.

We understand the needs of our clients and appreciate that purchasing furniture may only be a small part of their job.  That’s why we endeavour to make this as simple as possible.

From examination and treatment tables to hospital trolley’s; ward furniture to staff and patient seating, we have a range of furniture to meet the medical clinics, hospitals and health care requirements.  Our understanding  of the hospital environment allows us to guide you, our clients through their purchasing decisions and ensure they choose furniture that is correct for them in both staff and patient needs and budget requirements.

Cleaning Instructions

Surfaces of cabinets, doors, tabletops etc are melamine faced and need only wiping with a damp soft cloth and then a dry cloth to keep clean. Soap or detergent can be used for organic stains but avoid unnecessary wetting or abrasive cloths and cleaners, and use proprietary cleaners as directed when needed for stubborn stains.

Fabric upholstery, including all healthcare specific fabrics, should be routinely cleaned to retain its looks by vacuuming and wiping with a damp cloth. Remove spillages promptly with an absorbent dry cloth, and use liquid soap with warm water for soiling. Water based proprietary cleaners can be used, following instructions carefully, you can use safe solvents such as mineral spirit. Bleach diluted 1:10 with water can be used to disinfect. Important: Remove all cleaning product residues as they inhibit stain repellents.

Vinyl (leather-look) upholstery should be cleaned with a brush and tepid soapy water, rinsing thoroughly with clean water. Never use polish, stain remover or solvent.

Polished timber components such as table bases, bed legs and headboards: wipe over with a damp cloth and then a dry cloth. Soap and detergent cleaners can be used if necessary but avoid solvents, abrasives and cleaners containing silicon, which can degrade the lacquer over a period of time.

Bed Protection Trays are manufactured from a very rugged plastic and should not stain. They can be cleaned and scrubbed using soaps, detergents or proprietary cleaners as directed, or disinfected with bleach diluted 1:10 with water. Please avoid getting the bed itself wet.


Where there are strengthening or connecting bolts in solid timber (e.g. bed headboards and table bases) they may need tightening down with an allen key if there is any slight natural movement in the timber.
