Up to 300 new jobs are to be created in a new 150,000 sq.ft. manufacturing base in the Scunthorpe as with Wren Kitchens are investing a further £20 million on another facility.

Wren’s UK manufacturing operations director, Kes Serelis, said: “We’ve reinvested back into our business to create this new state-of-the-art facility which is required to cope with our increased demand of fabricating high-quality quartz worktops for our customers across the UK.

“It will create a significant number of manufacturing and support roles for the region such as machine operators, team leaders, compliance officers and managers.”

In July 2021 the site officially began fabricating stone quartz worktops using hi-tech, computerised machinery. The new quartz site will be operating at full capacity by December 2021 and recruitment will continue throughout the year. 

This investment comes just after Wren announced that thousands of consumers had voted for them to be named Kitchen Supplier of the Year 2021 by the UK’s number one website for self-builders and home extenders Homebuilding & Renovating.

In addition to this Quartz facility, Wren are currently progressing with works on a new £120 million, 1 million sq.ft., kitchen manufacturing and assembly facility at its headquarters in Barton-upon-Humber. The site will open by summer 2022 and create a further 900 jobs for the region. 

Great news for UK manufacturing and investment.
