Dan Kitchens Australia was established in 1984 and first operated out of factory premises in Smithfield, and, not long after that, at expanded premises in Girraween, in Western Sydney.
In 1985, Vagn Madsen was joined in partnership by Danish cabinet maker Jan Peitersen, previously of PP Møbler, Danish furniture manufacturer of Hans J Wegner’s classics. Jan Peitersen and Vagn Madsen’s collaborative effort would endure for over two decades and make Dan Kitchens the success that it is today. Jan Peitersen retired for health reasons in 2005.
In 1988, Dan Kitchens moved to a purpose built building at Seven Hills. The company owned facility incorporated manufacturing, a design studio and a kitchen & joinery showroom on the one site.
In 2014 Dan Kitchens expanded into an adjoining 850m² building that provided valuable additional production space. As the company grew in size and sophistication, cutting edge CNC manufacturing equipment and gas heated spray booth facilities were incorporated into the Dan Kitchens operation.
