About Us

Ace Kitchens & Laminates is a Wellington-based company that specializes in kitchen design, production, and installation that was established in 2010 in Upper Hutt.


We are centrally placed in the Upper Hutt extended industrial area, allowing us to readily service the Wellington Region.


We distinguish ourselves from other kitchen firms by designing customised kitchens rather than mass-produced, low-quality flat-packs. Every design is unique and is generated from drawings utilising the most advanced CNC machining technology.

We have also been a Master Joiner member as of 2016.

Initial local site visit, quotations and guidance are provided at no cost.

Grace Workplace First Aid Certificate
Grace received her certification in workplace first aid this week. We are absolutely thrilled with her achievement
Health and Safety

As members of the NZ Joinery Manufacturers’ Federation (Master Joiners) it is always exciting to see our kitchen industry grow and change for the better. 


Recently Ace Kitchens was privileged to be part of an HASANZ project.  A group of well-respected subject matter experts from all fields of heath and safety came together with the goal of creating an industry specific document to assist joiners.  H&S is wide arching umbrella of many facets, but this resource takes it back to practical solutions, guides and where to get help for us joiners.  


Ivan and I, working alongside other like-minded joiners, were able to contribute our thoughts, experiences, and feedback.   It is pretty special when you can give up a little of your time to contribute something back.


Today we received a copy of the H&S resource hot off the press and it was so much better than I had expected.  It was a wonderful experience to work with a group of funny, smart, passionate individuals on something other than kitchens!

Over the weekend of the 27th August, a few members of the crew were in Wairarapa assisting Ivan's mother with her 60-meter fence. A large task that was completed in the better part of two days.
