Meet the Team

We are very proud of our team. Being fully employed including the designers and fitters it has enabled us to retain staff and create a team of professionals who care about what they do and we would like to tell you about them.

Colin Phillips

Installations Director and Business Partner

Colin has been in the kitchen industry all his working life. From leaving school he joined a leading kitchen distributor, learning quickly he soon progressed to become their logistics manager. Moving later into kitchen design and sales and then into kitchen fitting, Colin is well placed to understand the needs of our customers.

Looking after the installation side of the business, Colin’s role is to take your wonderful kitchen design, together with all those special choices you made and get it installed without fuss to your total satisfaction.

Darren Goodman

Sales Director and Business Partner

Darren gained his original experience from being a draftsman then in the insulation, sheet metal and asbestos field was an estimator and then progressing to area sales and contract manager then national sales and contract manager and eventually running his own business.

Then, in 1998, he got together with Colin to start The Little Kitchen Factory, bringing his experience & knowledge of running his own business to the table. Then on top of his drawing and estimating skills Darren spent three years out fitting kitchens gaining an extensive knowledge of the kitchen industry before taking on the sales and design role, happily leaving the fitting side in Colin’s safe hands.

This invaluable time on site fitting together with his previous draftsman’s experience made the move into kitchen design an easy transition.

Now with 17 years design and successful sales experience is working alongside his two fellow designers.

Chris Brown

Remedial and Warehouse Manager

Company First Aider

Chris joined us in 2006 as an assistant kitchen fitter.

As a qualified, time served plumber, Chris settled in quickly and soon became a very valued member of our fitting team. Customers enjoy his friendly nature and happy personality.

In 2017 he became our warehouse, logistics and remedial manager and is just as likely to be found unloading a truck as visiting a customer’s home to carry out a small remedial.

Also with his wealth of plumbing knowledge, Chris looks after our bathroom installations.

John English

Designer

John originally came to us in 2005 after running a pine furniture 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, now with his wealth of experience in kitchen & bedroom design, will listen, advise and carefully take you through the design process from start to finish — there’s not many better!

Kay Barraclough

Darren Freebury

Qualified 18th Edition Electrician

Previously working for a competitor, Darren had been on our ‘radar’ for some time and we finally enticed him to join us in 2004.
