In the true spirit of business camaraderie and partnership, family-owned Swiss manufacturer of multifunctional digital cutting systems Zund America celebrated the recent completion of its brand spanking new headquarters in Oak Creek, Wis., with a lavish grand opening event befitting one of the digital cutting industry’s leading lights.

For more than three decades, Zünd has been designing, manufacturing, and marketing modular digital cutting systems and has made a prominent name for itself worldwide as a market leader in a plethora of different industries.

The technological excellence of Zünd cutters stems from the company’s values on superior quality standards, modular design, and a strong focus on its customers and their market-specific needs for cutting, finishing, and automation.

Taking place on Nov. 15, Zund America celebrated the much-anticipated grand opening of its new facilities with a ribbon-cutting ceremony.

The ribbon was cut by a Oak Creek’s mayor Daniel Bukiewicz, in addition to number of different Zund employees and officials.

Not only did those in attendance get to witness the ribbon-cutting ceremony, they also had the opportunity to tour the new building, see the state-of-the-art digital cutting system equipment and get to find out more about the new headquarters.

Guests quickly learned that the new building was purposely designed to be a reflection of Zünd’s environmental values.

The pristine facility has thoughtfully incorporated high-efficiency glass panels, HVAC and building automation systems for light, shade, and temperature control, which helps to reduce Zund America’s overall environmental footprint.

While attendees who flocked there without a doubt impressed by the building’s exterior and interior design, they quickly understood that the new North American headquarters represents more than just a building.

For Zund America’s dedicated employees, the opening of the new facility acts as a true testament to Zund America’s remarkable growth and success over the past 15 years.

Established in 2004 as sister company to the Altstätten, Switzerland-based Zünd Systemtechnik AG, Zund America has grown from a handful of employees to more than 80 and has now tripled the total square footage of its facilities to nearly 60,000-square-feet.

The new, high-tech structure combines under one roof expanded demonstration and training facilities, customer service & support, parts & consumables warehousing and logistics, as well as administrative offices.

For Dan Ryan, Zund America’s chief executive officer, the grand inauguration of the new North American operation represents a bright new chapter for Zund America.

“This impressive, state-of-the art facility represents a tremendous investment in the future of our company,” states Ryan.

“With nearly 10,000-square-feet devoted to demonstrations and training, the new customer experience center is very much the centerpiece of the new building.

Adds Ryan: “The greater space and efficiencies it also affords all other departments will allow us to continue supporting our rapidly growing customer base in the U.S., Canada, and the Caribbean for years to come and deliver the world-class service for which Zünd is known.”

Even though Zund America is relishing in the moment and enjoying the new building, they are also emphasizing the importance of always looking to the future.
