Schöck Canada Inc. moves into new premises…von Christian Witt
Despite the economic crisis in the last years, the Schöck Group never stopped growing and developing new solutions for the construction industry. Our overall sales are continuously increasing, we are exploring and entering new markets and we are writing success stories with every step we take and wherever our innovative building solutions are used. We just love to enthuse our clients with our unique products and services.
As most of you know, we started our local business in Canada on April 1st, 2009 when we opened up our first sales office and warehouse at 199 Trillium Drive in Kitchener, Ontario.
Since this date, the local business has grown and we are a well established company in Ontario now. Our products are being specified – especially in bridge projects. Engineering firms know where to find us when our assistance and expertise is required, and the name Schöck has become a “general term” to the industry linked to best quality products and services.
Now, almost two years later, after our incredibly positive development our personnel capacity needed to grow, as well. In the past couple of months we have not only expanded our sales force, but have also started our own local engineering department.
Suddenly, our first office became too small. At the same time, we also had to think in the long term and look for a new warehousing partner that will be capable of handling the growing work flow and of offering the required flexibility to continue with our expansion plans.
In order to celebrate the growth and success together with our business partners, clients and friends, we invited to an open house event on March 9th, 2011. The number of participants surprised us positively. We had a full house from 2pm to 6pm. More than 50 guests attended and celebrated with us and much more that wished to attend but couldn’t come, contacted us by email and phone to extend their congratulations. But specially one guest could not miss this event: our EBI.
For those who attended and those who couldn’t come, please enjoy the following pictures of a nice afternoon between friends and remember: Schöck Canada Inc. is your partner for Innovative Building Solutions, the only manufacturer of High Grade Glass Fibre Reinforcement and we are only a phone call away. Visit us at 202-279 King Street West, Kitchener, ON, N2B 1G1.
The remaining food was donated to the House of Friendship. We are happy we could also support people in need this time.
