When contacting us, whether it is via phone or visiting our showroom, Sharon at reception will be your first point of contact. Sharon is responsible for many aspects of the day to day running of the company and generally keeps the rest of us organized and in line. (Well, she tries anyway).
Working along side Sharon in the office is Mike Paul (Managing Director) and Cliff Armstrong (Manager). Mike has been running the two companies since their conception more than 25 years ago and has a wealth of business and industry knowledge, specializing in kitchen design, vanity’s, wardrobes, furniture, entertainment units and full house fit outs. Cliff has been working along side Mike for more than 17 years as manager and shareholder, and is more commercially focused; working on shop and office fit outs, bars, restaurants, and contract CNC work. Both Mike and Cliff wear many hats within the business, but remain very customer focused, both being heavily involved in each project from start to finish, from the design and quoting stage, through to material selection, construction and installation.
Our team is made up of some the most talented cabinet makers and polishers / painters in the country, led by the Factory Forman of more than 14 years Tony Fowler. We pride ourselves on being one off specialists, thinking outside the square and utilizing our skills, machinery and sub-trades to their full potential, keeping full control of the project from start to finish with an in-house polish shop and installers, we can tackle anything, not only in Auckland but nationally and internationally.
With a constantly changing marketplace we have adapted by developing new products and investing in sophisticated machinery to remain competitive.
To keep standards as high as possible we have a minimum standard that we build to that guarantees quality and durability. 18mm thick carcasses in both MDF and MUF (moisture resistant MDF) with the option of EO board for the environmentally conscious. (This is as opposed to 16mm particle board which is quite commonly used in the industry). Other features include ridged 2mm PVC edges, High quality Grass Nova Pro soft close metallic draw sides and where possible the use 165 degree opening hinges. All of which will help to ensure your kitchen continues to look like the day it was installed.
A large majority of our work comes from recommendations and repeat business allowing us to spend time building a strong rapport with our clients. We have also featured in various magazines around the country.
