No more growing pains

Anyone with kids will know how quickly they grow when they’re young, which might explain why Dutch infant fashion brand Noppies went to SIG Zinc and Copper to clad its main HQ building in Lelystad. For unlike its ‘nappy’ namesakes, there’s no waste in evidence here. SIG’s just developed a bespoke cutting service that means all its finishes can now be made to measure, fabricating non-standard tray and panel to meet the demands of any architect’s specification. Now who’s feeling like the pampered one?!
