The Factory gives Meningitis Research Foundation a helping hand

Earlier this month the team at our digital manufacturing space KWMC: The Factory teamed up with law firm Veale Wasbrough Vizards (VWV) and Collecteco to provide the Meningitis Research Foundation (MRF) with upgraded furniture for its new office in central Bristol.

VWV donated surplus furniture and Collecteco assisted MRF in acquiring 38 desks from PricewaterhouseCoopers’ Southampton office, as part of their work to redistribute furniture and other equipment to good causes.

As the desks were too wide for the planned space, Collecteco put MRF in touch with KWMC: The Factory, based at Filwood Green Business Park.

Our team were able to remanufacture the desks to the right specification, ensuring that the Meningitis Research Foundation have everything they need for their big move.  We wish them well in their new home!

For more details about how KWMC: The Factory could work with your business contact Justin or call 0117 903 0444.
