In June last year Purdy’s parent company rebranded and changed its name to Kinovo, hence the Kinovo/Purdy branded hoarding. The name Kinovo was derived through a series of workshops that included our employees; “kin” relates to family; our people, our subsidiaries, our clients and communities. It also forms part of the word “kinetic”; a type of motion that gains more energy as it accelerates. The word “novo” is from the Latin word meaning to make new. Combined, Kinovo reflects a renewed family with connected competence as its core.”

“Our Purdy Hackney Reactive Office, is managed by Hackney Contract Manager Sam Marchington and is an extremely important part of our company. We love how the team have creatively upcycled a 3 piece bathroom suite that was removed from a local void property.” Said Pippa Pang, Kinovo’s Social Value and Marketing Manager.
