DELIGHTED staff at a kitchen manufacturer are cooking up a storm after scooping a top award.
Davonport, in Peartree Road, Colchester, clinched the award for best showroom at this year’s Häfele Studio Partner Awards.
The company fought off stiff competition from around 200 kitchen, bedroom and bathroom studios across the UK.
A ceremony was held in Michelin-starred Marcus Wareing’s Gilbert Scott Restaurant, at the renowned St Pancras Renaissance Hotel in London.
The world famous chef was on hand to present the award alongside Craig Chambers, managing director of Häfele UK.
Director Richard Davonport said: “We are delighted to accept this award.
“We have been designing unique hand-made kitchens for over 20 years and it is great news all the hard work with the support of Häfele is being recognised.”
Mr Chambers said: “Davonport is a model example of our Studio Partnership scheme, growing their business from strength to strength along the way. The company has shown dedication, commitment and full support and is a deserving winner.”
