Wren Kitchens ploughs £120m into Humber investment


Wren Kitchens are to create 1,200 jobs as they plough £120m into their new facility at Barton-under-Humber headquarters.

The company has submitted a planning application for a new 910,000 sq ft facility to built next their current factory.

The kitchen retailer will create new roles in manufacturing, IT, development, engineering and customer service.

Mark Pullan, managing director of Wren Kitchens said “This project will be the largest single investment in Wren’s history and, having considered different locations both across the UK and abroad, we believe that developing the existing site in Barton-upon-Humber provides us with the best solution.

“The new factory demonstrates our commitment to manufacturing in the UK and particularly the Humber region.

“We believe that continual re-investment in our business is essential to maintaining our current growth rate and, subject to receiving planning approval, the project will be funded internally.”
