The British Furniture Manufacturers (BFM) has welcomed Wren Kitchens into the association as an approved member.

In less than 10 years, Wren has grown from a standing start to become a leading UK kitchen retailer, with 77 showrooms nationwide, supplying over £1b worth of kitchens in the last three years alone.

The kitchen retailer, which has been named by the Telegraph as the fastest-growing retailer on the high street, joins a line-up of British names including Silentnight, Dreams, Hypnos, Ercol, Parker Knoll and G Plan already among the BFM's 200-plus member companies.

BFM MD Nick Garratt says: “We are delighted to have Wren Kitchens join us as a member. Wren Kitchens are a manufacturer with a commitment to craftmanship, innovation and a strong environmental/social responsibility, all things that are valued by BFM. We look forward to supporting Wren Kitchens and are thrilled to work with such a respected household name.”

Mark Pullan, Wren’s MD, adds: “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.”
