About Jag Kitchens

The Jag Kitchens Story

Jag Kitchens was established in 2004 to fill a gap between low-cost modular kitchens and those hand-built, labour intensive kitchens that were beyond the reach of many people.

Family owned and operated

Family owned and operated, Jag Kitchens services the local community in East Auckland, as well as the wider Auckland area, in both residential and kitchens for builders for new construction. Founded by Malcolm and Lesley McLagan but with foresight and succession in mind, their son Nick recently has taken over ownership and has been an integral part of the business since the inception, as has his wife Jen. More recently Neal Parker joined Jag Kitchens and very quickly became an indispensable member of the team.

Nick, Jen and Neal have more than 45 years combined experience in the industry, and are absolutely delighted to have acquired the business from Malcolm and Lesley. As Malcolm says, “We founded Jag Kitchens as a family business, and we are delighted to be ‘keeping it in the family’ under the new ownership and operation of Nick, Jen and Neal.”

The Jag Kitchens team are an integral part of the kitchen design experience for our clients. Nick is well steeped in the kitchen business; from sales and design through to manufacturing and installation, he is well acquainted with what’s required to deliver quality, affordable kitchens to Jag Kitchens clients. Along with both Jen and Neal, the new ownership team will ensure that your experience with Jag Kitchens - from your complimentary design quote through to final inspection - is outstanding.

Trusted Supplier to Families and Building Companies

Jag Kitchens services both residential and commercial kitchen builds. Compared to other companies, Jag Kitchens’ clients find themselves with a new benchtop twice as fast than others.

It is therefore no surprise that Jag Kitchens is a trusted and preferred kitchen design company for both busy working families across Auckland and building companies such as Signature Homes East Auckland and Sentinel Homes Auckland North/West. No matter how big the job is, you can be assured that Jag Kitchens will provide a stress-free, on time and within budget kitchen.

High Quality Kitchen Manufacturers

One of Jag Kitchens’ key philosophies is never to compromise on quality. We’re not a retailer that purchases from somewhere else and on-sells to our clients - we are manufacturers of high quality kitchens our clients love.

Because of this, Jag has more control throughout the overall process from start to finish, including custom-sized cabinetry and benchtops tailored to your specifications, made from top quality materials. You can trust Jag to design, manufacture and deliver the kitchen that you have always wanted and be confident that it will stand the test of time.

State of the Art Design and Technology

The Jag Kitchens professional design team utilises state of the art Computer Aided Design (CAD) software that enables clients to see exactly what their kitchen will look like in 3D.

This software is hugely beneficial to a kitchen build for two reasons:

  • Firstly, we always create a 3D visual of a finished design so that clients can see how their kitchen will look prior to sign off. This ensures that Jag Kitchens customers are totally happy with their final design prior to the products being made, meaning their money will be spent achieving the kitchen they are after without any costly hiccups along the way.

  • Secondly, because Jag Kitchen work exclusively with local manufacturing factories, the CAD software is able to send detailed information to the sophisticated production machinery to ensure measurements are accurate down to the exact millimetre. Thankfully, because the manufacturing plants are Jag Kitchens’ own, there is no third party payments involved, keeping pricing competitive.

Committed to quick design and installation

At Jag Kitchens we ensure the kitchen installation process is quick, simple and hassle-free. We know you would like your kitchen back up and running as soon as possible, with minimal fuss and delay. After all, we understand the kitchen is the hub of the home, and no-one wants to have take-aways for weeks on end!

Our designers will manage your kitchen project with clear communication so you know what to expect and when to expect it, keeping you up to date with your installation and turnaround times to ensure you are back up and running as soon as possible.

A good example of this is the usual standard waiting time for a bench top installation. The industry standard wait-time for a bench top install is generally an extra 10 working days once the kitchen has been installed. Here at Jag Kitchens we don’t think that’s good enough. And because of our exclusive business relationship with our local manufacturer of bench tops, we can assure Jag Kitchens customers that we’ll halve the industry standard - they’ll have their benchtop install within 5 working days.

Interested in a kitchen but still have some questions?

That’s fine with us, just get in touch. We would love to partner with you to design a kitchen that you have always dreamed of. The beauty of choosing Jag Kitchens is that our experienced designers know what works and what doesn’t – and can help you make design choices that you can be confident in.
