At Yealm Kitchens we are proud to have a dedicated team of designers, craftsmen and fitters who work closely together to produce and deliver excellent, high quality kitchens and furniture.
Jo O-Brien – Managing Director
Yealm Kitchens was started by Jo’s stepfather in his shed in the back garden at his home in Newton Ferrers. By 1992, the business had expanded and the showroom and workshop was acquired. Jo took over the business from his stepfather in 2000. Jo is passionate about the business and takes pride in focusing on the customer and customer satisfaction. Jo is involved in all areas of the business and has a ‘hands on’ hard working business ethic.
Matt Stirling – Designer & Sales Director
State of the art computer aided design is undertaken by Designer and Sales Director, Matt Stirling. Matt joined Yealm Kitchens in 2012 and is a former Aerospace Design and Application Engineer, so when they say kitchen design is ‘not rocket science’, it might just be! Yealm Kitchens design work is conducted to combine a perfect match between form, function and aesthetic splendor. Matt enjoys the design process and finding innovative solutions to meet client needs. In addition to design and alongside other team members, Matt oversees the sales, marketing and development of the business.
Stanislaw Michalowski – Workshop Director
Stanislaw joined the team in 2019, with a background in Yacht Building and Shop Fitting.

He is very hands on, overseeing the workshop to make sure each customer is delighted with their kitchen.
