Time to celebrate
With a brand new home and a big birthday this year, Misco Joinery has a lot to celebrate in 2018.
This year marks 30 years in business for Directors Michael Chernishoff and Glenn Colenso and their dedicated team of designers and joiners. They are keen to celebrate this significant milestone with an Open Day later in the year at their new purpose-built premises in Kaiapoi.
The new factory was a labour of love for Michael who project managed the build after buying the land 12 years ago. From humble beginnings on farmland behind the family home, the opening of the new building fulfills a long-held dream for Michael. After seeking planning permission four years ago, this ambitious project has taken three years to complete and Michael couldn’t be happier with the results.
“Building the factory has been a huge achievement, not only for me, but also for the growth and development of Misco Joinery. When people visit the showroom, or when we show them around the factory, it is humbling to see the amazement on their faces. We have future-proofed the building to enable us to grow into the space over the coming years.”
Directors Michael and Glenn are brothers-in-law and it’s very important to them that they maintain a sense of family. “Misco is still very much a family business and, while not everyone who works here is family, we treat all our people as our own.”
Originally in Mairehau Road, and now based in Kaiapoi, the Misco team have had a hand in projects all over Canterbury. They also have customers on the West Coast and their small office in Auckland provides design services to builders working with Misco products in the North Island.
It has always been important to Michael and Glenn to provide high-quality joinery to their customers while keeping the price range achievable. Michael adds: “Quality at an affordable price and great service are part of our core beliefs.” Their personalised service covers joinery design, manufacture and installation in new builds, residential renovations and commercial projects. All the joinery is constructed from moisture resistant MDF using European hardware and top-of-the-range soft-close Grass Nova Pro Scala drawer systems from Hafele.
During the design process, the experienced consultants focus on understanding how their clients will use the space, helping to optimise the flow and practicality of the room. Michael has a hands-on approach to making sure his customers are happy and, once the designs are finished, he personally signs off each one with them.
When everyone is 100% happy with the design, the joinery is all constructed onsite. The team is very proud of their new fully-automated manufacturing plant. The laser edging technology used in the process means they can deliver seamless edging, every time.
Working with customers from design to completion takes around 8–10 weeks. Misco has its own skilled installation team who construct the joinery onsite, making sure the results are just right.
At home in their new headquarters, the team remains focused on providing great service and quality joinery to discerning Cantabrians and customers further afield. Having put their stamp on many new homes across the wider Christchurch area, they look to embark on more residential renovations and commercial projects in the future – treating each assignment with the personal attention for which they are known.
And, as they celebrate 30 years in business, they will be looking forward to raising a glass to 30 more.
