NEW GERMAN ARENA LAUNCHES WITH SICO STAGES

SICO Europe’s latest Venue Maker stage installation has taken place at The Sparkasse Arena in Aurich, Germany. 

The arena owners were keen to find a staging solution that would provide them with the flexibility required to successfully run their new multi-purpose venue. 

The SICO Fold ’n’ Set system was chosen, despite tough competition from both local and American competitors, thanks to its speed and ease of use – features which the venue manager, Bernd Janssen, had already experienced first-hand thanks to using SICO staging at the nearby Oldenberg Arena. 

Mr Boekhoff, Aurich Town Hall Planning Director added, “We are pleased to have taken receipt of the SICO Fold N Set stage, as it serves as a solution to a time and space saving issue for our multi-purpose hall”. 

Officially opened in May 2009, The Sparkasse Arena will host a variety of sporting and musical events. The Danish National Dance Team and Chris De Burgh will be amongst the first to perform on the new SICO stage.

SICO EUROPE® Celebrates 40 Years of Manfacturing Excellence!

2008 marks the fortieth anniversary of SICO EUROPE’s® formation as a UK company. On 26th February 1968, Merricks-Sicomo Limited was formed by John Merricks, David Ford and Arthur Gronwall.

Starting life in a humble 600ft factory in Camberwell, London, Merricks-Sicomo originally began manufacturing stages, dance floors and ‘TC65’ tables.

Right from the start, the focus was on the “more effective and efficient use of space, time and labour” – a concept that still runs deep at the heart of the company today.

The company name was officially changed to SICO EUROPE® Limited in 1993, and in 2004 we moved to our largest site to date, set in the beautiful surroundings of Lympne, Kent.

Now operating from this modern 40,000 square ft site (which includes both factory and offices), SICO EUROPE® employs 112 staff and continues to strive for manufacturing excellence and the highest standard of customer care.

We are still market leaders for both quality and innovation, and are constantly looking for ways to improve and expand our current position in the marketplace.

SICO EUROPE® Tables Go Green

SICO Goes GreenSICO EUROPE® has recently launched another special laminate for its table seating units. The new top is designed to address the issue of climate change and ways in which we can all be more environmentally friendly and help prevent global warming.

Officially launched at this year’s Education Show in March, the laminate design incorporates the themes of deforestation, the loss of animal habitat, alternative energy sources and recycling.

Andrew McDonald, SICO EUROPE’s® International Sales Manager said, "Environmental issues become more relevant every day. As with the healthy eating laminate, we felt we could help highlight this issue to the younger generation using our table tops."

SICO EUROPE® Secures Its Largest Ever Table Order!

SICO EUROPE® has recently delivered a record 334 dining tables to various primary schools in Scotland.

One order alone, placed by North Lanarkshire council, was for 211 tables, representing the largest single Scottish order for table seating units ever received in SICO EUROPE’s® 40 year history.

"This has been an extremely exciting time for SICO EUROPE®. In addition to the manufacturing of such a large quantity of tables, our transport department has had to co-ordinate the delivery of all the tables – for which we had just a one week time slot. This left no margin for error!" said SICO EUROPE’s® Education sales manager, Andrew McDonald.

Four SICO EUROPE® lorries and two 40ft trailers left the SICO EUROPE® headquarters in Kent to make the journey up to Lanarkshire where deliveries were made over a four day period to 43 primary schools.

For St Margaret’s of Scotland Primary School in South Carbrain, the new tables were replacing existing SICO EUROPE® tables that were nearly 30 years old.

Sharon Harden of North Lanarkshire council said, "The delivery guys have been brilliant. 'Pure dead brilliant' – as the kids up here would say!"
