David Oxley

Along with wife Helen, Dave established 1st Class Kitchens in 1995, initially as a fitting service but soon grew into a full retail establishment. He started out as an all-round kitchen installer, qualified in everything from plumbing and carpentry to electrics. His eye for perfection really shines through in the finished product and his project management of each job ensures that everything runs smoothly. Dave lives with his wife Helen in Walton. In his spare time he enjoys watching motor sport, attending Silverstone a few times, going to live shows and socialising with family and friends.


Helen Oxley

Helen has a real can do attitude and finds nothing too much trouble. She is the organisational backbone to the company, arranging everything from installation schedules, deliveries, invoices and paperwork. Her warm and friendly personality means that customers feel truly at ease that they are in safe hands. Helen lives with her husband Dave in Walton. In her spare time she likes to walk around the local area, go to west end shows and socialise with family and friends.

Rob and Matt

Rob & Matt Redfern

Rob and Matt are 1st Class Kitchens’ father and son installation team. Nothing is too much trouble for either of the duo and our customers love their friendly, approachable personalities. Between them they have over 25 years of installation experience. Rob married his long term girlfriend, Missy (Melissa) and now lives with her and their 3 children. Both Matt and Rob live locally to the showrooms and despite working with each other all day still enjoy a pint down their local pub, The Hollingwood Hotel. Matt says “Rob is always keen to do a good job and usually takes charge. His only fault is that he always nicks my pencil!” In their spare time they like to go for a nice meal together as a family with their wives and enjoy weekend breaks at Skegness where occasionally Rob may even buy Matt a pint!
