Facades on Wheels in North America

Facades on Wheels in North America

Welcome to Swisspearl Facades on Wheels in North America. Due to the current situation it is difficult to get in contact with our partners and customers. Of course you can make a phone or virtual call, but it is no substitute for a personal conversation. So we had to find a quick and effective solution. Instead of traveling by plane, we decided to go on 4 (or 10) wheels and make our way to our customers and partners. We are flexible to meet in the office, park, jobsite or we can just make a drop off.  In this first article we show you a review of the first two trips. The third trip goes East – you will read about our project tour in Washington D.C. later in our blog. 

Together with our Distributors we are here, and ready to assist with your projects!

 

Trip No. 1: 2292 Miles, 10 States
Trip No. 2: 1997 Miles, 5 States

 

 

 

«We visited numerous projects, as well as, key clients in order to strengthen our personal and business relationships.»

 

A small extract from the projects visited

Joplin High School, Missouri
This vast campus was designed in an astonishingly short time to remedy the acute shortage of high school space in a tornado-hit community in Missouri. Swisspearl provided a solution for part of the exterior cladding as well as a signature wall inside the gym, which features the school’s emblem engraved in a two-layered paneling.

The Marian H. Rochelle Gateway Center, Wyoming

The Marian H. Rochelle Gateway Center, Wyoming
The Marian H. Rochelle Gateway Center is the University of Wyoming’s “front door”. It is a welcoming center with a state-of-the-art technological infrastructure that was funded entirely through private support. It is a place for prospective students and families to enter the University, for gatherings of current students, for alumni to arrive and celebrate the history and traditions of their alma mater, for friends to participate in the University’s programs, and for corporations and organizations to interview and recruit UW students. It also serves Wyoming’s donors, athletic fans, supporters, friends, and the general public. A decade later, Swisspearl Panels look as though they were installed just yesterday and perform to the highest standards.
