It all started back in 2009, when director Carl Arnold saw an opportunity. He knew a thing or two about kitchen design and manufacture, and decided to make quality kitchens accessible for New Zealanders. Carl was ready to challenge the ways things were done, and even a global recession couldn’t stop him. 

Well, it worked - today, we’re industry leaders, offering the best of kitchen design, processing, manufacturing and installation in the Auckland region. And the kitchen sink. The best thing? We make it all right here in New Zealand using the finest materials. We’re in it for the long haul, which means making sure the whole whanau is happy, and that includes you. This is a family business, after all.

Carl has been involved in the woodworking industry for 30 years. For many of those years he travelled regularly to Europe to study the latest manufacturing techniques and technology involved with kitchens and furniture. It was this experience and knowledge that helped him set up the very modern, efficient and competitive manufacturing facility that we have achieved at Kitchen Mania.
