As a locally owned and operated business, you can be confident you will always be dealing directly with the right people.

The Kitchen Company was started in a suburban garage in 1981 by Peter Batley. With Peter’s dedication to exceptional service and high quality design and manufacturing, the business grew and today we have the biggest showroom and workshop in the Canberra region.

The Kitchen Company is now run by Adam and Charlotte Batley, Peter’s son and daughter in law, who share his passion for creating beautiful and affordable custom-made kitchens.

We are proud to be a locally owned and operated Canberra business, and we believe it is important to give back to the community. We employ 20 local Canberrans, we offer vocational training and apprenticeships, we source products and materials from local suppliers and all our kitchens and laundries are manufactured in our Fyshwick workshop by qualified cabinet makers and joiners. We also support local events and charities.
