Known as the Network Centre, it is designed not only to house the UK’s largest permanent exhibition of façade, window, door and solar energy systems, but also to provide a venue for marketing presentations and sales seminars by the company’s national network of fabricator partners.
Schüco is believed to be the first building envelope and solar energy systems company to have set up this type of a sophisticated facility for the benefit of its fabricators. Schüco maintains that establishing the Network Centre demonstrates its whole-hearted commitment to its business partners and is an essential element of the strategy driving the company’s recent expansion.
The new Centre contains examples of Schüco’s systems in both aluminium and steel – including its range of aluminium louvre blades. One section can be used as a lecture-style theatre for an audience of just over a hundred. The Centre also has a coffee bar with tables and chairs and one specific area is devoted to Schüco solar products encompassing solar thermal and photovoltaic (including glass/glass laminates) systems.
Equipping the Network Centre represents a major corporate investment in terms of both time and money, but Schüco is convinced that it will prove invaluable in helping its fabricator partners to boost their businesses and stay ahead of their competitors.
