The Mobile Centre “Frederiksminde”
It was so delightful out in the country’
Flensted Mobile’s domicile ‘Frederiksminde’ is beautifully situated in the heart of the lovely countryside of Denmark – on Funen and close to Brenderup. The building was formerly a school and it has a long history. Flensted Mobiles moved her in 1972, when many schools were being closed down or merged. The arrival of Flensted Mobiles brought motion and energy back to the former school building.
From poorhouse to mobile centre
Frederiksminde school was founded in 1828 in another beautiful building only a stone’s throw from where Flensted Mobiles is now situated. By 1892, conditions had become so cramped that the school decided to move a bit further up the hill to the former poorhouse.
So first of all, this was a poorhouse. It then became the new ‘Frederiksminde’ school, and when the firm moved in, it became a Mobile Centre.
