Andy Dukelow, Managing Director of Franke Sissons:“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.”
