Craven Refresh Update – What’s New?

Last year, we announced the Craven Refresh, where we planned to take all the necessary steps to further increase our brand awareness and affinity. The Refresh aimed to highlight the evolution of Craven & Co from a heritage brand to a leading manufacturer, as well as take the necessary steps to grow our existing product range and partnerships with other globally reputable brands.

Our plans continue to evolve, but we’re so happy to be able to bring you an update of what’s new and what’s been going on behind the scenes!

Introduced a new product range

You may remember the launch of our new product range aimed at the mortuary industry back in March, including our mortuary racking and bier trolley. Our new range provides versatile, practical and long-lasting solutions for a wide range of requirements, with bespoke options also available. For more information, take a look at our mortuary product page or get in touch if we can help in any way.

Launched additional depth to Firmashelf

Many of our products can be made to exact specifications with our racking available in many different sizes to suit a wide range of operations. We recently launched an additional 450mm depth to our Firmashelf, bringing our total of different sizes to 45! We’re providing more variety in space saving solutions than many other manufacturers.

We’re on the NHS Supply Chain

We are now proud to be an approved supplier on the new NHS Healthcare Furniture Framework that launched in May 2021. We have a wealth of experience in the medical sector including working directly with the NHS.

We are excited to be continuing and developing our work in this sector and we’ll continue to build on a long-standing relationship that was strengthened during the Covid-19 pandemic when we delivered tens of thousands of trolleys, modular shelving and medical equipment, including a specially-designed IV drip stand, to the NHS Nightingale hospitals.

Inclusivity on the shop floor

Having a more inclusive workplace is important to us, and we’re hiring some brilliant new staff members who we believe will be invaluable to our work. We continue our plans to bring a more diverse workforce to Craven & Co and to bring new skilled individuals to make our processes even stronger and more efficient.
