Wren Kitchens has opened a new transport depot in Rochester to cope with increased demand.

The new hub will service 25 deliveries per day using a mixed fleet of of 7.5-tonne and 18-tonne trucks and is said to be creating more than 100 new jobs.

The new site will operate as a satellite depot to its major Stansted transport site, trunking kitchens from its Barton-Upon-Humber manufacturing facility.

John Wright, Wren Kitchens vice president of transport, said: “Our logistics are at the heart of Wren’s success, and as the company continues to grow, so does the need for enhanced connectivity to be closer to our customers across the UK, to ensure we continue to deliver 99.5% on time and in full.

“The new Rochester site has been pinpointed to significantly reduce road miles travelling to our customer’s homes - so our teams are spending more time delivering dream kitchens and less time driving to them, reducing our CO2 emissions and supporting our green ethos.”

Wren delivers more than 2,000 kitchens per week using its 250-strong truck fleet with seven depots across the UK in Stansted, Bristol, Lanark, Howden, Barton-upon-Humber, Dudley and Manchester.
