FRANKEN About us

Welcome to FRANKEN

We were founded more than 40 years ago and our business is still completely privately managed and owned.

We are one of the market leaders in Europe for professional visual communications products. Over the years we have continued to innovate and develop unique solutions for visual communication.

Today we offer one of the most comprehensive ranges for professional and educational use, with our products being designed to be functional, stylish and of excellent quality. Our products are manufactured with care for the environment and we offer a comprehensive manufacturing guarantee.

The FRANKEN product catalogue contains our core range and many new products for 2016 & 2017, which will meet most of your visual communication needs but should you have other requirements, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Franken Quality

As a highly experienced manufacturer of planning systems and presentation products we have a worldwide workforce of over 250-300 people employed in the production of quality products, mainly manufactured at our German facility. Through close consultation with our customers we are able to develop new products that are very relevant to the work place. Our long standing experience proves that a solution orientated product development policy yields better value to customers than simply delivering many “me too” variations. Please contact us to discuss your individual application and we will find the best solution for you.
