Wilsonart, the UK’s largest worktop manufacturer and a wholly owned subsidiary of Wilsonart International based in Temple, Texas was founded way back in 1956, is celebrating its 60-year anniversary.
Wilsonart UK based in Shildon, County Durham spans 23 acres and outputs on average 30,000 worktops every week across the laminate and solid surface production facilities. To mark the company’s 60th year, the UK team has started a year-long fundraising campaign for Macmillan Cancer Support.
Rachel Fothergill who is heading the Wilsonart UK fundraising calendar explains, “We have set our sights on a £1000 for every decade. This is something the staff and management are doing themselves and are pulling together with the aim to raise as much money as possible for this incredible charity.”
Events kicked off with a valentine’s Bake Sale. More office-based Bake Sales are planned along with a challenging 170-mile bike ride and the possibility of an extreme-event in the style of Total Wipeout held at the Shildon site, the details of which are currently being developed.
