History, experience and dedication in kitchens and bathrooms for Wellington and Wairarapa customers
Jacobson Joinery Services Ltd was created by the merging of two previously separate businesses, Jacobson’s Kitchens and Cabinetry, and The Renall Door Company in early 2018.
Graham Jacobson had started his joinery company in Martinborough in the mid 1990s and had been producing quality kitchens and cabinetry since then. His product was well known throughout the Wairarapa and Wellington regions and although they were only a two-man operation they had a steady stream of customers wanting all sorts of creations built to a high standard. Often customers would start with a kitchen and then be back for a laundry or bathroom or wardrobe fitout. This repeat business and word of mouth was all that was needed to keep them busy, sometimes too busy.
Vic Jacobson, Graham’s brother, had been in various roles with The Renall Door Company for over 25 years off and on and had spent a fair amount of time overseas sourcing machinery and training for their implementation in the factory. Vic had been a builder and operated a successful local building company for several years, and this along with his software knowledge made him an essential cog in the operation of Renall Doors.
The opportunity came up to purchase the factory and with this Jacobson Joinery services Ltd was created. A third brother, Bruce, who is based in Auckland, completes the ownership team that now runs the operation. We currently employ more than 15 staff.
The Kitchen and Cabinetry division employs two staff directly – Andy Wilson, the Sales Manager, Trent Jacobson and Tony Wilson who produce the kitchens and cabinets, Laj Khra who installs the kitchens and cabinets. With the availability of extra staff at our Carterton joinery factory, busy periods and delivery delays are largely a thing of the past. The investment in modern machinery has made for accuracy and efficiency in the production cycle.
As well as kitchens we make laundry units, bathroom units, entertainment cabinets, wardrobes and all other manner of cupboards, shelves and joinery items that may be required.
