Our Story

Ace Kitchens and Laminates is owned and operated by Ivan Johnson. An accomplished cabinetmaker of 20 years, Ivan produces high-quality laminate kitchen cabinets as part of our kitchen installation services.

Our kitchen design and manufacturing company has grown and grown since its inception all those years ago. In the early days, concept drawings were all done by hand and the manufacturing process was laborious. Today, we use computerised drawing software and state-of-the-art equipment and machinery to manufacture durable and stylish kitchen cabinets and other components.

Through the years, our team has grown from a single cabinetmaker into a group of kitchen designers, kitchen cabinet manufacturers and installers. All together, we share more than 70 years of industry experience!
