About Us

Owen Wright Joinery was started by Owen Wright in 1991.  The passion for his craft and eye for detail paved the way for what is now Joinery by Design. Since those small beginnings the company's reputation for customer satisfaction and personal touch has never changed. And even though Joinery by Design has grown into one Christchurch’s leading Joiners those fundamental values still remain.   In 2005 Evan McLachlan and Dave Phillips became business partners with Owen and the company changed its name to Joinery by Design. Sadly Owen died in the 2011 Christchurch earthquake but his passion, skill and training has left a incredible legacy with his staff and business partners. 

Today Joinery by design is a modern, computerised factory however the traditional skills are still very much apart of their everyday lives.  Joinery by Design are not mass producers of kitchen cabinetry but produce quality, built to measure kitchens as well as Windows, Doors, Stairs, Wardrobes and Feature Joinery.   Their Design, Build and Install service is second to none.  Plus when you become a customer of Joinery by Design you are dealing ‘one on one’ with the design team and not a sales person.
