Wren Trucks

FIVE wins at MT Awards

What an evening for Wren Kitchens at this year’s MT Awards! Our hugely successful client took to the podium FIVE times throughout the evening to collect the top awards for Safety in Operation, Home Delivery Operator of the Year, Operational Excellence, Business Excellence and Training.

For more than 35 years the Motor Transport Awards have been the benchmark for excellence among transport operators, vehicle manufacturers and other innovators across the UK. During a COVID ravaged period, Wren saw off fierce competition from the likes of DPD, Hermes, Hovis, Tesco and XPO Logistics. This is the 4th consecutive year that Wren has taken the top spot at the awards, but to win five categories this year was quite incredible, but no less than deserved. Well done Wren!

Wren Kitchens Transport and Logistics Director, Lee Holmes, said: “Not only is it our mission to design and manufacture affordable dream kitchens, we are passionate about efficiency, safety and standards of the highest level in the delivery of our products.

“Our policy of keeping everything in-house including our 770-strong logistics team drives our successes and enables continuous improvement.

“We’re proud and grateful to every member of the Wren family that continued to work for our customers during the pandemic and towards our future – it’s fantastic that we’ve been recognised for this.”

New creative leader joins Purple

We are very proud to welcome Matt Hutchins to lead our creative projects. Matt brings with him more than 20 years of graphic design experience for some top end automotive clients and has a natural eye for detail. Having worked as Comm’s Manager for The Royal Automobile Club and Marketing Manager for Moss Europe, Matt has returned to his real passion; pure design. Before joining Purple in 2020 Matt spent five years designing for Octane Magazine and GTO Engineering Ltd.

“Since sketching concepts at a young age my focus has always been design and the thrill of creating something new and taking it to it’s ultimate potential. My passion and enthusiasm for design remains unabated and is equalled to that of managing a successful marketing campaign.”

“We are so lucky to have Matt on board who despite joining at the beginning of the first lockdown, has been the lead designer on a number of commercial vehicle projects as well as developing the brand identity for a new-start, online global fitness venture.”

“Not only do we love his work and ability to deliver on point, clients do too!” said Debbi.
