Wren Kitchens plans Scunthorpe factory

More than 300 jobs are set to be created in Scunthorpe if expansion plans by a kitchen firm are approved.

Wren Kitchens has applied for planning permission to develop a site on the Foxhills Industrial Estate to manufacture doors for kitchen units.

Operations director Armando Sanchez said the plant, a former B&Q warehouse, would employ at least 320 people.

Once up and running it would supply doors to Wren's kitchen unit assembly plant at Howden in East Yorkshire.

Mr Sanchez said the company planned to open the Scunthorpe site "as soon as possible", subject to planning consent.
