In the showroom you will find:

Darren Goodman

Darren Goodman – Sales Manager, Designer and co-owner.

Darren started life in our industry as a kitchen fitter. Gaining vast knowledge, it was a natural progression for him to progress into the design side of the business.

With his obvious flair and ability to listen to customers' needs, Darren is just at home designing kitchens of any budget. The professionalism he shows is unmatched by any of our competitors and is a huge mentor to the rest of our team.

John English

John English – Designer

John came to us many years ago after running a pine factory in Tuxford. Eager to add another string to his bow, he soon became a very valued member of staff. Learning from both Darren and Colin, John has become a brilliant kitchen designer. With his warm, friendly personality, he is very easy to get on with and our customers find him a breath of fresh air, not pushy, not arrogant, just a nice bloke that is very good at what he does.

John is considered 2nd in command and is more than capable of running the business on a day to day basis when required.

Colin Phillips

Colin Phillips – Installations Manager and co-owner

Colin has been in the kitchen industry for more than 25 years and has a huge wealth of knowledge both in fitting and designing. Leaving the designing to Darren and John, Colin’s role is to take your dream kitchen from plan stage all the way to satisfied installation. This includes a site visit to check measurements, plumbing, electrical etc., through to ordering your kitchen components and finally installation. Colin organises the whole project so that it runs smoothly. He is a qualified electrical part P installer for your peace of mind. Having the skills and experience gained over the years he demands nothing but 100% dedication from his fitters.

Natalie Phillips – Accounts

Natalie does all our accounts and has been with us many years. Friendly and polite, she is just at home speaking to customers in the showroom if needed.

Out on Site:

Rob Mayes

Rob Mayes – Kitchen Fitter

Rob joined us in 2001 and partnered Colin out on site. With a background in carpentry he found the transition into kitchen fitting a natural one. Having the perfect temperament, customers warm to Rob very quickly. Being qualified in joinery and Part P electrical testing, Rob is just as likely to be testing your electrics as he is installing your kitchen.

Darren Freebury

Darren Freebury – Kitchen and Bathroom Fitter

For a long time Darren was on our ‘radar’ working for a kitchen installer in Doncaster and eventually joining us in 2003. His talents were obvious and he has matured into a first class craftsman. His ability to ‘think on his feet’ and adapt to different tasks is superb. He is just as happy installing a beautiful kitchen or a stunning bathroom. Like the rest of our team, Darren is regarded as a very important member of staff.

Chris Brown

Chris Brown – Trainee Kitchen Fitter

Chris came to us in 2006 after completing his plumbing course at college. He continues to develop his talents under the control of Rob, Shaun, Darren and Lea and has a very promising future with us. Never one to slack, Chris is always eager to help his work mates with whatever needs doing and is a very pleasant individual.
