Wren Kitchens is planning to build a new 910,000 sq ft factory at its Barton-upon-Humber headquarters.

The £120m expansion will create up to 1,200 jobs in the region, adding to the existing workforce of 1,500 staff at the site.  Wren employs a further 1,000 staff in Howden, Hull and Scunthorpe.

Mark Pullan, Wren's managing director, said: "The new factory demonstrates our commitment to manufacturing in the UK and particularly the Humber Region," adding that it would be "the largest single investment" in Wren's history.

He added: "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."

Wren currently operates 78 showrooms and reported turnover of over £500m last year.

The company has yet to submit a planning application for the new site.
