Why Choose Us

About – why choose us 1

Put simply, good old fashion quality and service from a small NZ owed business.

The business was started in a garage more than 32 years ago, moving twice before settling into a 1600 sqm factory at 16 Portage Road in New Lynn almost 25 years ago.  Many of our staff have worked here for more than 20 years, with our longest serving employee of 27 years recently retiring. We believe this clearly reflects who we are, and how we conduct ourselves in business.

Many of our clients are repeat customers, servicing both the residential and commercial sectors.  In fact, we are now seeing the owners of kitchens we built back in the 90’s coming back for a second, or in some cases even a third time.  It’s great to go back and see how well some of the kitchens have fared, and it’s also a valuable insight on how to improve an already great product utilizing more modern materials and techniques.

Both the Directors, Mike and Cliff, are still very hands on in the business, and in most cases will be the client’s point of contact.

This adds a personal touch you just don’t receive from larger manufacturers or retailers.  You are able to draw information directly from the owners, and be guided through the process with help from their factory Forman of 20+ years, Tony Fowler.

We take pride in what we do, and demand a very high standard that shines through in the end product.
