Kitchen retailer Wren Kitchens is investing £120m in its fourth manufacturing facility in the Humber region, which will create up to 1,200 jobs at its Barton-upon-Humber headquarters.

The company – which currently employs 1,500 people at its HQ and a further 1,000 at its Scunthorpe, Howden and Hull sites – has submitted a planning application for the new 910,000sq ft facility, to be built behind Wren’s existing factory on its 180-acre site.

“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,” said managing director Mark Pullan.

“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.”
