Maven portfolio company Just Trays (JT), the UK’s leading shower tray manufacturer, has been awarded their second ‘Gold Award for Innovation in Design’ at the Designer Kitchen and Bathroom Awards Ceremony for their 'Evolved' range.
The company won their first design accolade three years ago for the JTSOFTSTONE product and have once again impressed the judges at the prestigious industry awards ceremony. The product launched this summer and is a first in the market to fuse both a shower tray and wet room concept.
JT has successfully led product design in the shower industry for the last three decades, from the first tray on legs to the launch of the revolutionary JT40 and market-leading JTFusion, the low-profile tray that took the market by storm.
Paul Crossley, Managing Director of JT, said: “We are completely overwhelmed to win another award at the Designer Kitchen and Bathroom Awards, I could not be more proud of the team. It’s a fantastic achievement and well-deserved for the mammoth effort the team has put in over the last 18 months to bring the Evolved by JT to market."
“As the name suggests, this product is an evolution of existing portfolio of products and we believe that the design, build and range is better than anything out there in the market. I would also like to thank the judges and our partners at Wirquin who helped deliver the revolutionary waste product that is integral to the Evolved by JT solution. The reaction from the trade has been incredible and we believe the Evolved design will set the benchmark of future designs.”
Maven led the secondary MBO of Just Trays in 2014, acquiring the business from Gresham Private Equity.
