Local Company Angry At Lack of Support for UK Manufacturing

Franke Sissons Ltd, who have been manufacturing for over 230 years, has headed a hard-hitting parliamentary discussion to outline the lack of surveillance for genuine CE Marking, required by UK Law, on products fitted in commercial buildings. Franke Sissons Ltd employs the majority of its staff from the Derbyshire area and says it could expand its business and create even more employment opportunities if mandatory proof of CE Marking at tender stage was instigated.

Franke’s Managing Director, Andy Dukelow explains, “This is a problem right across the building industry not just in our sector. Without a CE Mark on products for bathrooms and washrooms, consumers may endure scalding injuries, product failure under load and ultimately products will fail completely, there is no back up and absolutely no guarantee".

The absence of CE Marking compliance and the policing of this European Union directive is creating a palpable disadvantage for British manufacturing. Deprived of CE conformity, consumer safety is at danger and momentous investments made in public and private buildings is being undermined by poor-quality products.
