Nelson’s longest established kitchen and joinery manufacturers
Cooper Webley has been a long standing business in Nelson, New Zealand. Cooper Webley has always been a family affair since Stan Cooper and his two sons Bob and Don started it back in the 60’s. Now over 50 years later and two generations on, the company is owned by Bob’s daughter Sharyn, and son-in-law Noel Tait.
Our designs are a combination of functionality and unique provocative style. We love crafting kitchens that are stylish and sexy, allowing your kitchen to become the heart and soul of your home.
As well as kitchens, we also specialise in wardrobes, bathrooms and laundries, joinery, cabinets, cupboards and pantries, vanities, space savers, modular units and cabinet renovations of all types.
In 2011, built on the back of its strong reputation within the industry and many years of Joinery Manufacturing, Cooper Webley have developed its range of Acoustic Panels now called “Hush Panels”. Hush Panels were developed due to a growing demand for the product and have continued to develop over the past years to what they are now.

See what our clients have to say about us
Craig impressed us with his friendly manner and product knowledge from day one. We had been around several other kitchen designers and were becoming slightly disillusioned with the whole process before we met Craig. We had a vague idea of what we wanted, but he was able to turn it into a reality for us. Craig understood our taste and vision and was able to guide us through the whole process, making it as stress-free as possible. We are very happy with the finished result which has transformed our cooking and living experience.
Our builder recommended Craig Hooper from Cooper and Webley to design and build our new kitchen. From the outset we had confidence in Craig, in what was a difficult space to work in, having a 45degree angle. He listened to our preferences and made suggestions and ideas to achieve a modern workable kitchen. The whole process was stress free to the extent that we were overseas when the kitchen was installed. The end result is a kitchen to be proud of, not only aesthetically but is very practical to work in. Having installed five new kitchens, this is by far the best in terms of design, workmanship and appearance and we thank Craig for this.
I have really enjoyed working with your team. I have appreciated their expertise, advice and professionalism – nothing was ever a problem for them. I have to say that Hannah is a real asset to your company – such a lovely, enthusiastic (and talented) person to work with!
We’re really happy with the finished product and your ideas/help was invaluable. We appreciate you going above and beyond your brief so thank you! The guys who installed it all did a great job as well, they were friendly, polite and helpful. We would definitely recommend you to anyone needing joinery work.
Thank you Craig & Andre again for their discussions with us and excellent concept options taking our personal views into account and to Ed for a highly professional installation despite the somewhat problematical nature of the job. And to all, for their friendly and reassuring manner which contributes to our overall view of Cooper Webley always exceeding our expectations. We are delighted with the practicability and finished visual.
We will continue to recommend you to all of our friends & associates, some of whom have already used your services and are as delighted as we are.
What we especially liked was that CW were actually prepared in advance and we were able to view the items well ahead of the installation. Which helps ease the stress in the middle of a major renovation – definitely not the norm we are learning!
We recently decided to do some major renovations to our older home, including an entire new kitchen, and Cooper Webley came highly recommended. Now that we’ve actually experienced their excellent workmanship and very focused and personalized care we most certainly understand why. Their levels of communication, quality construction and follow-through were exceptional. I truly felt that instead of a bunch of workmen just doing a job that I developed an actual relationship with a team of professionals who really care about the outcome. In short we can’t recommend them enough and will definitely be back for any future need!
The care taken in the planing process was the main influence for choosing Cooper Webley followed by product quality then the cost. We couldn’t fault the way we were kept up to date with all aspects of the joinery build and great followup after installation.
Craig was a pleasure to work with. He showed patience and complete understanding of our wishes.
Very happy with the result!
Most impressed with entire process – have already recommended CW to others.
The price, prompt followup and helpfulness with suggestions and changes was the main influence for choosing Cooper Webley. We were very impressed with their service, they were nice, helpful and calm.
It was a pleasure to work with Craig on our kitchen and other joinery throughout our new home. He took the ideas we had and made them better – more practical and more in keeping with the architecture. Craig’s direction gave us an award-winning kitchen that is both beautiful to look at and a joy to work in! We are very happy clients!.
The whole process from the pleasure of designing my own kitchen to working with the team at Cooper Webley was something I have enjoyed from start to finish. My unique kitchen is efficient, fits my needs, and looks wonderful .They responded to my every wish and exceeded my expectations in the service their team provided. I highly recommend this company to any one wishing to renovate their kitchen.
Innovative designs, exquisite detail and stunning craftsmanship
are some of the reasons we continue to be the best at what we do.
