This is an appliance brand which, like others, has been supplied by Premium Appliance Brands (PABL) until recently. Now Leaker Direct source their own products as far as we are aware and still provide support for all Kompact appliances.
It is an own label brand created a few years ago as a special for some kitchen specialists such as D.M. Design, Andersons and Space Kitchens and lots of others besides. Generally the products are low cost and installed in to low-cost kitchen installations in our experience.
The product is low cost in terms of performance and quality although, from what we've seen, in comparison to other products in the same sector they did represent reasonable value for money until PABL went under.
Now the products appear to be supplied by Cata or one of the brands that they trade under and the products would now appear to us to be clones of the Cata, Cooke & Lewis, Apelson and so forth brigade. Cheap, cheery (nasty?) with seemingly little to no service or spares support or, limited support.
Kompact Spare Parts
Being low cost appliances doesn't mean cheap spares. Generally most are "reasonably" priced compared to others but they do not always reflect the purchase cost in that, by comparison to the price of the appliance, they seem expensive. That said, most Kompact spares are not overly expensive and tend to be more reasonable than many.
Many of the spares for the Kompact brand are available from our online store and those not listed can usually be ordered for older product.
For newer product with new suppliers, all bets are off.
