Wisteria Kitchens is a family run business started in 2012 by Sam Cockcroft who for 12 years prior to establishing Wisteria Kitchens had worked for a major high street chain designing, planning & selling Kitchens but became frequently frustrated with not being able to offer the customer a level of service that he felt people not only look for but deserve.
In October 2014, after 2 successful years of trading from his office at home, Sam launched his first kitchen, bedroom & bathroom showroom. Conveniently located on Greenhill Way, Kingsteignton this constantly evolving space includes new and innovative room settings for Kitchens, Bedrooms and Bathrooms.
“As a local kitchen, bedroom and bathroom installer we pride ourselves on being small and friendly, with a “No hard sell” policy. For us, it is important to remain small enough to enable us to keep our prices as low as possible and offer a more personal service.”
Some have been known to say “the best boss they have ever had” Sam prides himself on running Wisteria with the easy going, fun loving nature he is known for and genuinely sees all his staff as extended family members.
Craig’s trade is kitchen installation but recently he joined our team as a sales designer alongside Sam. His expertise as an installer are second to none so give him that extra edge when it comes to designing too. We sometimes have to separate Craig and Sam, it’s like being back in the classroom, we do occasionally let them loose together at the local, after hours on a Friday though.
Michele is Sam’s wife, she takes care of all the marketing, branding and advertising as well as running the Office & Showroom floor not to mention tidying up Sam’s office when it gets out of control. Michele likes nothing more than to be on hand to offer interior design advice to customers visiting the showroom.
Vicki is Michele’s sister. With years of practice behind her, she keeps Michele on her toes with her exceptional organisational and leadership skills in the accounts department.
Kate is new to the team and will be found keeping the bookkeeping in tip top shape. Fiance to one of Sam’s oldest friends, she is patiently waiting for her 2021 wedding after having to postpone due to Covid-19 restrictions. We are all looking forward to a good old boogie too.
Our Project Manager, Russ was originally one our first fitters and his expertise and knowledge now play a vital part in the successful completion of all our jobs. He works closely with you the customer, liaising between you and the team you are appointed.
Mat is the Son of Russ so has spent his life watching and learning from the best. After 8 months of apprenticeship alongside our skilled sub contractor’s, he is now a Wisteria installer in his own right and is going from strength to strength. Mat is an avid car & quad bike fanatic, what he doesn’t know about cars, isn’t worth knowing but as a relatively new dad with 2 babies under the age of 2 he doesn’t get much time for that these days.
Stuart has worked as a sub-contractor locally for many years in the kitchen & Bathroom installation trade. A family man with a brood of 5 no less, poor guy comes to work for a rest!
Mike is another installer who has been with us since the early days as a self employed contractor, fully qualified in joinery & working in the industry for over 20 years. We are delighted to have Mike on board with us as he’s already a valued part of our Wisteria family, as is his wife Claire and his gorgeous kiddies.
Our Delivery Driver/Warehouse controller can often be seen driving the South Devon Roads with a huge smile on his face. Mike’s New delivery van is his pride and joy. If you see him out and about be sure to give him a wave, he loves that!
Our Odd Job man, He has a wealth of experience of working with Russ for many years and can often be found helping out on rip outs and installs and covers for Mike when he is on leave.
Sam’s mum. Lyn is responsible for keeping the showroom in tip top condition and can be found here twice a week brandishing her mop and duster. She also likes to keep Sam stocked up on his vitamin C so you can usually find a good supply of oranges in the display kitchen fridge. Awww!
