Group Award

Recognising High Achievers

Mastercraft Kitchens Manawatu and Kapiti have scooped awards at the 2023 Master Joiners Awards gala night.

We are very proud to announce that Mastercraft Kitchens locations were recognised at the glitzy 2023 Master Joiners Awards night. Mastercraft Kitchens Manawatu (Kitchens by Healey) and Mastercraft Kitchens Kapiti (Kapiti Kitchens) took home excellence awards, recognising their high-achievements in the kitchen joinery industry.

The New Zealand Joinery Manufacturers Federation celebrate professional excellence through its Annual Master Joiners Awards programme. The awards programme recognises commitment to standards and craftsmanship. This program is valued as part of the Master Joiner professional membership and realises a high level of participation each year.

Master Joiners encourage the pursuit of excellence through two award programmes, the Registered Master Joiners Awards and the Master Joiner Apprentice Awards. It is in the former category that Mastercraft Kitchens Manawatu and Kapiti received their recognition.

Kristine Holmes, General Manager, Mastercraft Kitchens by Healey and Kapiti Kitchens, accepted the Myles Sellers Memorial Award presented to the Palmerston North based family business in recognition of Outstanding Culture in their workplace. In Kristine's words, "we are super proud of the awards we won." Constantly working on retaining a family culture within the business Kristine (the daughter of Sue and Peter Healey who have owned the business for 20 years) leads the way in promoting work life balance, job security, birthday recognition, a family first culture, teamwork, high standards and a fun working environment. 

Amber Downie, Designer/Sales Manager at Mastercraft Kitchens Kapiti collected the Best Regional Award - Wellington for a stunning kitchen she designed in Paekakariki. The stunning L-shaped kitchen with a geometrically matching L-shaped island brings together a perfect harmony of black cabinetry in part of the kitchen paired with a warm woodgrain in another, all tied together with black waterfall tops boasting gold-veined marbling. It is one of those kitchens that is equally perfect for family moment making or a welcoming hub for party night! Scroll down to see the full kitchen project below.

Amber is renowned for her stylish, stunning and functional designs, and this award is just the start of what we are certain will be many more to come.
