Wishbone Site Furnishings | Visit website | Grand Prize Sponsor

Wishbonelogo

Grand Prize Sponsor Web

Wishbone Site Furnishings all started in 1995 with one primary objective: to design and build maintenance-free, municipalgrade furniture using recycled plastic lumber and recycled metals. We have established ourselves, through the years and thousands of products later, as the industry leader in the site furnishings market with cities and municipalities across North America attesting to the fact that our products do exactly what they were designed to do.

Our success stems from our ability to adapt, create and deliver exceptional products that meet our customer's expectations and the public's demand for environmental stewardship. We have become a strong force and resource for those inquiring, acquiring, and building products using recycled plastic lumber.

At Wishbone, benches are so much more than "just benches". They facilitate relaxation and encourage us to sit and experience and enjoy our surroundings. Our benches enhance the look and purpose of a location with style and comfort. By blending sustainable and recycled materials with innovative designs, we create durable outdoor furnishings that are as functional as they are beautiful. Sit on a Wishbone bench and you'll want to stay a little longer.
