Kitchen retailer Wren has been awarded the Made in Britain Marque for recognition of its commitment to UK manufacturing.
Made in Britain brings together manufacturers in the UK, through the use of its registered collective marque, which guarantees all its members products are made in Britain.
Wren makes all its kitchens at three factories in Yorkshire and Lincolnshire and has supplied kitchens worth over £1billion in the last three years.
It produces around 2,000 kitchens a week which are delivered fully built, including all doors, drawers, wirework and baskets.
Wren claims to be the only company which has been awarded FIRA Gold for product and installation by the Furniture Industry Research Association (FIRA).
Celebrating its 10th anniversary, Wren had a turnover of £77,000 in 2009.
In 2018, it’s turnover was £496million and The Sunday Times ranked the company 12th in its Top Track 250.
Wren now has 77 showrooms nationwide and has plans to open 18 more in 2019.
The company employs nearly 4,300 staff and owns its complete supply chain, using its fleet of lorries.
Wren invested in a training area at its HQ, The Nest, in North Lincolnshire to train people at a time.
Managing director of Wren Mark Pullan said: “We are very proud of our British manufacturing heritage.
“All our kitchens are designed, developed and built in the UK to the highest standards.
“We are committed to manufacturing affordable luxury kitchens here in Britain and this makes us unique in the kitchen market.
“We have created thousands of jobs in the UK and are delighted to have so many passionate, dedicated and exceptionally talented people working within the Wren family.
“We are happy to be joining like-minded businesses at Made in Britain and look forward to being part of a strong brand that promotes British manufacturing.”
