Schlüter-Systems has announced the opening of its new Schlüter-Systems Education Centre (SSEC) and “World-Class” offices.

Located on the Bardon 22 Industrial Estate in rural Leicestershire, the SSEC building features an orange and grey façade to reflect Schlüter’s corporate colours, and stands out as a unique architectural accomplishment in the area.

The renovation project began in 2014, as the building’s interior and exterior was modernised and rearranged to utilise the space for the growing number of staff at the company.

The building features an improved training facility to host SSEC workshops for tilers, resellers and specifiers, demonstrating Schlüter’s commitment to increasing skills and development within the industry.

Schlüter-Systems products are utilised throughout the building, including; Schlüter-BEKOTEC-THERM underfloor heating; DITRA-HEAT ranges; lighting profiles from the Schlüter-LIPROTEC range and wetroom system solutions from the Schlüter KERDI range.

Amongst the new unique design features is Schlüter’s radiant under-wall heating in the reception area and exhibition room, where products are displayed alongside a feature wall which showcases the group’s seven subsidiaries.

Managing Director Joachim Backes, who joined the company in 2013 commented: “It is fantastic to finally see our ideas turned into reality. It hasn’t been easy, but it was our vision to create an environment that our customers can enjoy and benefit from, and for our staff to be proud to work in, and I believe we have succeeded in this aim. 

Clients now benefit from a real-life, hands-on demonstration of our systems and solutions and can see for themselves how our products work. We hope that everyone who visits the Schlüter-Systems Education Centre will enjoy the facility as we look to build on existing relations and create new ones with our customers at this great centre of innovation.”

Whilst training events are fully booked until the end of the year, book now for training events in 2016
