Our Team - Prestons Kitchens | German Kitchens for Less

Our team

Our team

Prestons Kitchens, founded in 2014 by Mark Parker, is still a family-run business. Mark has over 20 year’s experience in the kitchen industry having previously worked for his father’s kitchen firm from leaving school. His father Norman was the largest importer of German kitchens into the UK for over 30 years – so kitchens run in our genes!

 

Whilst Mark runs the day-to-day operations of the business, Norman now in semi-retirement, continues to bring his nearly 50 year’s kitchen experience to the company ensuring youth and enthusiasm are combined with experience and knowledge to provide all our clients with their perfect kitchen.

 

Whilst our roots were originally in supplying large volumes of kitchens to developers and tradesmen, the natural next step for us was to open a retail business and deal directly with the general public – offering the same great deals we offer our trade customers. With our unique history in the German kitchen market and our unrivalled knowledge and buying power, we have taken the highest quality German kitchen materials made by the largest kitchen manufacturer in the world and made them available to everyone.

 

Now with our new flagship kitchen showroom in Leeds and a further 3 showrooms in Preston, Huddersfield and Stockport, we can supply and fit quality German kitchens across the entire north of England.

Prestons Kitchens, founded by Mark in 2014, is still a family-run business.

 

Mark has over 20 years of experience in the kitchen industry, having previously worked for his father’s kitchen firm after leaving school. With his father, Norman being the largest importer of German kitchens into the UK for over 30 years – it’s safe to say kitchens run in the family genes!

 

Mark loves the fact that Prestons are able to offer affordable, high-quality kitchens for everyone. Nobody has to compromise on quality against cost.

Managing Director

Based at the Huddersfield Warehouse, Paul oversees the project management of a kitchen, from start to finish. Working with Prestons for the past 6 years there’s nothing Paul doesn’t know about fitting a kitchen. And should a problem occur Paul loves solving them quickly and efficiently.

 

With some kitchens having over 600 components, it’s a tricky business getting it right. However, with careful planning, design and aftercare, the team never settles for anything less than our best, which is a proven recipe for Prestons’ success.
