Misco Joinery History

Misco Joinery evolved from a vision that founder, Michael Chernishoff, had begun to plan whilst on the first day of his apprenticeship. The dream turned into a reality when Misco Joinery was founded in 1988. Michael’s brother-in-law, Glenn Colenso, joined him in 1998 to learn the ropes and eventually become his business partner.

The production for the kitchens started out of farm buildings at the back of the family home where it continued to grow until 2017. In this time Misco had grown into a company of 35 people and the space at home was becoming too small. Misco had the foresight to see that this operation couldn’t run from the farm buildings forever and 3,500sqm of land was purchased in Kaiapoi in 2005. Building for the new purpose built factory and showroom commenced in 2015.

Each day is filled with challenges but the directors have loved watching Misco Joinery grow into a thriving company that still maintains its core beliefs of family-oriented, determination and teamwork.

Today, Misco is a team of over 50 and is continuously growing. We are proud to have expanded our services into the commercial field as well as around New Zealand. Misco now has a strong team of client-facing designers who are all passionate about creating your perfect spaces. Our state of the art showroom offers a variety of kitchens, laundries and wardrobes for people to come and gain more design ideas.
