Another Happy Customer

Some of our wonderful staff

What a wonderful testimonial we just received from a client. It is always great to hear good or bad what clients think and we love the feedback as it helps us to enhance our business just that little step further.

It was noted in this testimonial a couple of our workers and on that note this Blog is dedicated to the guys on our workshop floor who time after time prove themselves as outstanding assets to our business, so thankyou guys, we would not have this wonderfully recognised business without your awesome input and expertise. Your attitude to work is outstanding and your respect for clients is appreciated immensely.

Read below for the wonderful testimonial………………………..

“Once again can I thank you for the job you did. Everyone told me that having major home renovations was going to be a nightmare, but my experience has been totally different.

I’m extremely happy with the final result and with the whole way you went about things. You completed it well within the time-frame we’d agreed, and did it with maximum efficiency and minimum disruption to my daily life – given that I’m at home most of the time, this was a big plus. The quality of the work is really excellent, and I can’t speak too highly of the way that James and Thomas went about the job. They checked with me all the way along to make sure that I was happy with how things were going, and solved all the minor issues that arose – nothing was too much of a problem. I particularly appreciated the fact that unlike a lot of other guys who have done work here, they didn’t bring their radio and blast out music and talk shows all day. Can you please thank them for me for their work – they’re a real asset to your firm.

I’d imagine that you have no shortage of testimonials from satisfied customers, but I’d be more than happy for you to show this to any prospective clients.

It’s been a real pleasure to have met you and to have done business with you, Chenoa.”  ~ Gordon Murray

Thankyou again to our wonderful client for the kind words and to our employees for their upmost respect of our clients and our works ethics and standards. It all goes a long way 🙂

Also a big thankyou to Nadia at the Ballina Chamber of Commerce. It has been unfortunate that I have been away for a couple of weeks with sick kids and only just yesterday let her know we would be attending the night. She most graciously allowed our late notice and was extremely lovely over the phone when I explained to her our situation. It’s always nice to know there are understanding people out there! So if you ever want to check out what the Ballina Chamber of Commerce does, get on over to their website It always pays to support the locals.

The Team at Solid Kitchens ‘n’ Cabinets

Back to School

Well, for the last 3 days we have been back to school. It is all very exciting but also challenging for us at the same time.

Exciting- in that we have introduced a new drawing program into our business and it will allow us to produce some wonderful new 3d images of our designed kitchens along with better output processes for the workshop.

Challenging – in that we actually needed to sit trough 3 eight hour days in front of computers just to learn the fundamentals of it, and whilst that may not seem such a big deal to many, for those of us who work on a factory floor with machinery or chase our kids around the house all day. Eight hours of continuous gazing at a screen was a fairly large change.

Our eyes have now adjusted though and we are back into our groove at the workshop and can’t wait to finish setting up our new program to get it all up and running.

Stay tuned….. and we will keep you posted about our designs and images as we navigate through the world of computer jargon.

Once, again thanks for reading and please share your comments 🙂
