Penketh Group has been shortlisted for the ‘Furniture Provider of the Year’ in the Mixology North17 Awards, that recognise the most dynamic and innovative interior design community in the North.
Penketh is one of five companies shortlisted for the award, which is now in its tenth year and has seen a record number of entries. The winner will be announced at a black-tie award ceremony at Manchester Central on Thursday, 7th December.
Mark Penketh, Managing Director of Penketh Group said, “we are delighted to have been nominated for this prestigious industry award.
“Throughout our 40-year history, this has been our most significant year of growth and expansion. Our expansion in to Manchester, with the opening of the region’s first WorkLife Showroom inside Bruntwood’s Neo, has given us the ideal platform to build relationships with the design community.
“It has also allowed us to showcase new and exciting products to our customers to meet an increasing demand for well-designed and sustainable products which promote wellbeing, flexible working and co-working within modern cutting-edge workplaces.”
This year, Penketh Group also launched a Showcase Space in WorkLife to present new and exciting designs from partners including BuzziSpace, Coalesse, Ocee Design and Frovi.
Mark added, “we wanted to create a mini ‘Clerkenwell of the North’ so customers can see the latest products from leading designers without having to travel to London. We display the furniture in real workplace settings allowing us to demonstrate solutions to workplace issues.”
Penketh Group is also sponsoring the ‘Manufacturer of the Year’ category in the Mixology North17 Awards.
