Just Kitchens – The Company
JUST KITCHENS (South Wales) Limited is a ten year old company based on the vast experience of the two Directors who have each been serving the industry for over 30 years. Our company is based in Pontyclun, and supplies kitchens, bedrooms and bathrooms directly from the manufacturer to you the customer, cutting out the expense of a showroom that drastically increase overheads and consequently reflected the price of the product.
Being aware of the trauma that is all too familiar with the purchase of a new kitchen, we at JUST KITCHENS are eager to address these issues and offer a “No hassle – No fuss” policy. To this end we include a fully comprehensive service that includes fitting, plumbing, gas work, electrical work, tiling, building alterations and decorating. All our services are highly professional and are certificated for Gas Safe and Part “P” Electrical requirements.
At JUST KITCHENS we offer a cross section of fine quality furniture from a number of manufacturers which include J. J. Omerod, East Coast and exquisite bespoke kitchens from Prentice, which amount to a choice of over 250 styles and colourways. Whether using doors of MDF, or the beautiful European Pippy Oak, all kitchens have high specification cabinets which consists of 18mm. carcases, screwless box construction, adjustable legs, 10mm. composite back panels rebated into the cabinet. Soft close drawers based on 15mm. framework, steel sides and nylon runners. All doors are soft close and have demountable hinges as standard. Cabinets come in numerous colours and in many cases matching the door finish.
This is the area where JUST KITCHENS excel over the competition! Whilst the quality of our kitchens will speak for itself, the service is one that has to be experienced. We fondly call it the JUST KITCHENS EXPERIENCE. We will fit an average kitchen in three to four days, this includes delivery, removing the old kitchen, fitting the new and disposing of all the rubbish if you so wish. Sounds impossible? See our testimonials page and ask our our customers directly. Because of our hands on commitment to each individual customer, irrespective of size, we are able to support this claim without compromise.
Roger David and Mike Owen, are both Bridgend born and bred and have been good friends for the whole period of being in the kitchen industry. However, both had taken different routes in life and have now decided to pool their experiences and build a company that will gain respect in both the industry and public alike – this is our ultimate goal of JUST KITCHENS.
- Roger David
- Workaholic No.1, best known locally as the former owner and editor of the Bridgend & District Recorder newspaper. Started working in the kitchen industry as a teenager and took a completely different route to Mike Owen which included the formation of Roger David & Co. Ltd. a building contractor, Kugenmeister Kitchens Ltd, a kitchen retail company with showrooms in Cardiff and Bridgend, the Bridgend & District Recorder Newspaper and now JUST KITCHENS (South Wales) Ltd. Roger was trained in Manchester as a kitchen designer and worked for Kitchens Direct, which was part of the departed Moben Group, and later for Tiles r Us. His role in JUST KITCHENS is designing, building applications, marketing, sales and generally running the company.He has the full support of a wonderful wife Val, and has a proven character record in the roles of: President of the Bridgend Chamber of Trade for two years, Millennium President of the Bridgend Rotary Club, founder President of the Bridgend Decorations committee and is still active in the installation of Christmas decorations in Bridgend and Club Captain of St. Mary’s Golf Club. Roger says “I always aim for the top and usually get there, my passions outside of work are golf and computers”.
- Mike Owen
- Workaholic No.2, Michael J. Owen as his mum likes him to be known, worked for F & R Dunlop Services Ltd. since leaving school. In this time he has been responsible for over 8000 kitchen installations, and selling in excess of 1000 kitchens himself. Mike spent a major part of his employment as Chief Buyer in the kitchen department and has become very well respected in the kitchen industry. Mike’s role in JUST KITCHENS is buying, arranging deliveries and organizing fitting.Mike has two lovely daughters, Angharad and Rhian and apart from being a workaholic and looking after Mum, Mike also enjoys a bit of weekend fishing.
All deliveries of furniture and appliances etc. are delivered to our warehouse for checking approximately ten days before the fit. This saves you the inconvenience of having to sit at home for days on end waiting for deliveries that never arrive on time. Having checked that the kitchen is complete we are then able to deliver everything on the day the fitter arrives at your home and it,s the fitters that unload the lorry not you!
Before we start the fitting we will arrange delivery of a skip to dispose of your old kitchen and appliances (except fridges and freezers) and all of the packaging. Fitting a kitchen takes an average of three to four days plus tiling or any other associated work, sometimes less depending on size. After your kitchen is finished the rubbish is gone and we are gone – it is not rocket science to offer this service – just good customer care.
After Sales Service
After sales service is the life blood of our business and in our opinion this is where a lot of small company’s go wrong. They have been paid, and proceed to treat the customer as a nuisance and they make excuses and lose all credibility they have built up during the procees. We pride ourselves on our ability and capacity to deal with after sales matters with a 24/7 telephone service. We sell seven days a week and we service those sales with the same enthusiasm. If asked how long will we be there for our customers? For as long as we are able to assist them.
We had a customer ring us the other day because a light fitting in her kitchen had overheated and stopped working, we immediately sourced a replacement and delivered it to her door the next day. She asked how much she owed us and we smiled and said that it was part of the JUST KITCHENS experience. She was very pleased because her kitchen had been fitted over two years previously. The cost of the light fitting £15.00. – The cost of her telling her friends and neighbors about us – Priceless!
We love JUST KITCHENS and that is what makes us different from any other company – no sales reps, no hard sell and a sales service that will someday become legend. We have nothing to lose – nor have you!
This is what JUST KITCHENS is all about –
All you have to do is empty the cupboards!
