Kia Ora, I’m Tommy Adams, owner and manager of Northern Benchtops. A born and bred Northlander, I began working in the benchtop industry at the age of 16, becoming a fully qualified joiner and later, a foreman for a laminate benchtop manufacturer. I founded Northern Benchtops in 2011, the same week my lovely wife and business partner Steph gave birth to our youngest daughter, Isobella, at just 25 weeks.
As our family has grown and flourished, so too has our business. Since those early days we have established a stone factory beside our original laminate factory – both of which adjoin our stunning showroom – and we have expanded our range from laminate only to include engineered stone, natural stone and, most recently, porcelain (sintered stone). We have cultivated strong partnerships with global leading brands to bring you Northland’s most extensive range of benchtop options available in a broad palette of unique finishes. By selling off-cuts we not only reduce landfill but give our clients quality and affordable surfaces for their bathroom and laundry benchtops and vanities. Additionally, we craft bespoke hearths and outdoor kitchen and BBQ surfaces from granite and porcelain. To complete your kitchen, laundry or bathroom spaces, we also source and supply designer Acero sinks.
I work with the crew in the laminate shed, I have 9 years joinery experience. When I am not at work you will find me spending time with my kids or working on my cars.
I started my role at northern benchtops working as a factory hand in both our lam shed and our stone shed. I have since moved into a role in admin/sales which I absolutely love. The knowledge I gained from working on the factory floor has been a great advantage moving into my role in sales as I am able to point our customers towards the right products to suit their needs.
Greg has been with Northern Benchtops for the past two and a half years. He has a wealth of experience spanning 20+ years. Greg has worked throughout New Zealand and Queensland, Australia. He started in headstones then branched into benchtops.
Hi my name is jack, I have worked at Northern Benchtops for 6 years, I started in the laminate shed and after 3 years I moved to stone.
Being foreman at Northern Benchtops, I am in charge of the laminate shed as well as overseeing operations in the stone shed and installing team. With 10 years' experience in the joinery industry, I enjoy challenging and complex jobs and achieving a high-quality finish. Outside of work you'll find me at the park with my dog, at the gym or spending my weekends working on my new house, which is currently in construction with Homeworld.
I have been head-installer at Northern Benchtops for the past 6 years. I was previously residing in Auckland where I gained a wealth of skill and knowledge in several different cabinet making industries including bathrooms, kitchens/wardrobes and shopfitting. I apply my 20 years' worth of technical skills to ensure every install is to the highest quality standard.
