our history

Parkwood Doors Over the Years

In 1993, our founders, Steve and Rachel Parkes, purchased an old joinery shop with the intention of contributing to the local community and creating employment opportunities there. In the following year, their eldest son, Dean, joins the business. For the next few years, Parkwood steadily expands, sending doors all over New Zealand. When Simon, the youngest son, joined Parkwood in 2002, the company had built a solid reputation in the door-making industry. In 2014, we entered the Australian market, before growing organically to offer Australia and New Zealand’s widest range of doors. In 2019, Parkwood welcomed the third generation of the Parkes family with the start of Dean’s eldest child, Brooklyn. Dean’s second son, Sterling, followed shortly afterwards in 2021. Cooper, Dean’s third son, joined Parkwood at the end of 2023 when he finished school.

Putting people first is always our priority. Whether that be our team, our customers, or our suppliers, we’re focused on fostering a culture that’s sensitive not only to the needs of our community, but to their dreams and goals for the future.

We know that people’s homes form the very centre of their lives, and we’re passionate about making these homes a place for families to come together. We want every product that goes out our doors to fulfil a sense of belonging, and we want families to feel the care and love we put into each and every product.
