The Excellence Group’s tagline is ‘Making Lives Exceptional’ – how is this relevant and why is it important?
We believe in investing in a better tomorrow; this pertains to our clients, our suppliers, our colleagues and of course, ourselves. By being strongly aligned through our Five Pillars of Excellence – process, product quality, client experience, financial stability and being an employer of choice – our companies are determined to continue moving forward.
Since lockdown has been reduced to Level 2, our world is starting to feel slightly more ‘normal’ again, yet there is still an underlying feeling of anxiety and confusion in our country. Whether this relates to politics, economics, sport, culture or our social environment – it is a new normal that we as citizens, are battling to come to terms with.
There will always be a choice to see the glass half-full or half-empty – but the choice is always our own. As proud South Africans, The Excellence Group chooses to be committed and focused on creating superb environments and opportunities for all lives that we touch. It is our job as proud South Africans to add value to our country for the generations that we leave behind us.

This ethos is shared in The Excellence Group’s founding companies: Italian luxury-kitchen designers Valcucine, European kitchen importers Eurocasa, local and world-class joiners Spotlight Joinery, surfacing specialists Infin8 Surfacing, and furniture experts Craft Furniture.
Organic growth is important to us – in fact, it is a key focus area. The Excellence Group has been busy over the recent weeks. Eurocasa has just completed their new showroom renovations. This renovation showcases the latest kitchen trends from Italy with a dash of the Eurocasa flair. Our team at Eurocasa would love to introduce you to the new additions to the showroom so please feel free to come for visit at your leisure.
We are always excited to enhance our clients’ experience and reaffirm their confidence in us being at the cutting edge of what we do. Luxury Italian kitchen importers, Valcucine are scheduled to have a renovation at the end of this year too. New showroom kitchens and finishes are on the water as this is being typed!
Valcucine has extended their product offering by partnering with the world-famous Italian Creation Group to offer high-end sanitary ware (Toscoquattro), lighting (Fontana Arte) and soft furniture (Driade).
Infin8 Surfacing has introduced a new division into the business called Infin8 Compact. Infin8 Compact consists of high pressure compact laminate (HPCL) materials – surfaces that combine layers of kraft paper that have been soaked in a melamine resin. It is then bonded together through high-pressure and heat before a final protective layer is laminated over a final decorative sheet. It is suitable for all residential and commercial environments as it is highly durable, scratch resistant, easy to clean and heat resistant against temperatures of up to 180 degrees Celsius. All the technical information and applications of this new product are available on our new website or feel free to contact one of our product specialists for a personal introduction to this new product.
