About Cherrywood Joinery Ltd


CHERRYWOOD JOINERY LTD are leading the way in kitchen and joinery solutions. Locally owned and operated by Matt Peters. Cherrywood produces the highest standard of kitchens backed by a customer service which is second to none.

Cherrywood was established in April of 2006 by Richard Childs and his wife Bonnie. Cherrywood had always been a dream of Richard’s. After coming up with the name, care of his wife Bonnie, Richard originally established the business in a small premise.

It soon became apparent from the increasing demand, that a bigger premise would be required.” I built a workshop in Ormond Road and we moved our business there,” said Richard, who undertook commercial projects for a number of prestigious stores throughout Europe including Harrods before moving to New Zealand in 2004. “But again, that became too small, and we moved to larger premises at Makaraka, and then moved to a purpose-built facility at 11 Potae Ave, Lytton West. “All our growth comes down to the support of our customers and we thank them for that as it is those people who help keep our dream alive.”

On the 1st of October 2018 Cherrywoods production manager and long standing employee, Matt Peters fulfilled his goal of owning a joinery business by taking over from Richard and Bonnie.

Cherrywood holds core values of investing in the joinery trade and work closely with BCITO (http://bcito.org.nz/) to provide apprenticeships for all age groups to continually develop new skills and maintain a high level of craftsmanship within our business.
