To celebrate Franke Sissons 230 years of design, innovation and manufacturing in Chesterfield the company has commissioned a stunning new stainless steel sculpture for the town.
Working with the companys design and engineering apprentices and the children of Parkside Community School Franke Sisssons invited the students to come up with concepts and designs for the project estimated to be worth in excess of £5k.
Managing Director, Andy Dukelow explains, The Year 10 students at Parkside have been wonderfully creative and focused on this project. We wanted something that truly reflects the manufacturing pedigree and history of the area, our own excellence in stainless steel but that most importantly engaged with young people and inspired them.
Franke Sissons, has a long track record of supporting young people in its business of manufacturing washroom and catering products from high quality stainless steel via a progressive apprenticeship programme. It also encourages youth sport in the area and supports charities locally.
