Chippysmate was established early 2004 by Darren Colk and Andy Kirby, who between them have over 40 years experience within the kitchen and woodwork trade, including overseas experience of manufacturing furniture in Africa. In early 2005,due to customer demand, Chippys Mate branched out into the kitchen componant market, becoming the premier HAFELE kitchen supplier for the whole of Norfolk. This enabled them to source and supply kitchen items, such as softclose runners, pull out wastebins and larders, glass splashbacks, and breakfast-bar legs etc, at great trade prices, with free delivery in and around the Norfolk area.
Then in 2006 they began selling rigid and flat packed 18mm kitchen units complete with BLUM softclose fittings, and replacement kitchen doors custom made to the customers size, colour and style. By branching out into these areas they have enabled the kitchen fitters, small builders, property developers and carpenters to source all of their requirements under one roof at great TRADE PRICES.
2007 began with a move to larger Norfolk premises on the site and the launch of AFFORDABLE DREAM KITCHENS. This enabled them to supply to the general public as well as trade and show a vast range of display kitchens with a choice of hundreds of colours/styles. This range is often enveyed by local kitchen studios and the large shed style warehouses. ie. B&Q , Homebase ,etc. as this allows the customers far more choice and a better chance of catering to their exact kitchen needs and tastes, but still keeping that vital personal service they have built the business on.
