While 2018 may seem long ago, we want to take this opportunity to say thank you one more time to the Schroeder Solutions team, our clients, colleagues, vendors and friends for making it a successful year.
One of the highlights of 2018 was our showroom refresh. It is our job to stay in tune with the latest and greatest office trends, and in 2018 we installed some amazing new product in our showroom. Come visit us to explore and experience a variety of furniture arrangements, seating options, work environments and to speak with our workplace consultants. We welcome you to our working showroom.
In fact, we enjoyed connecting with numerous clients, colleagues and friends in our showroom and around the city. We are committed to bringing valuable educational opportunities to our network, and of course some fun festivities. One of our highlights was our Creative Collaboration discussion with Teknion’s Chief Global Sales Officer Scott Duego. He inspired the audience with stories of the commitment, innovation, collaboration, drive and business savvy required to secure world class projects. We concluded this educational series with a fun gathering at Summerfest.
We know that in our ever-changing industry, there is always something new we can learn. From its inception, Schroeder Solutions has incorporated continuous education into our marketing program. Our commitment is to keep our staff, clients and partners updated on the latest trends. In December of 2018, we teamed up with industry expert, Amanda Schneider to start a conversation around how the furniture & design community can work together to make the process easier for clients.
And when holiday time rolled around, we got in the spirit by inviting our friends…and their families, babies and furry friends…for Pictures with Santa.
Our 2018 project highlights were also noteworthy industry accomplishments. We were excited to collaborate with the Kahler Slater design team to provide the furniture necessary to achieve the desired mid-century modern aesthetic for Irgens’ office at 833 Michigan. And we were honored to work on the Milwaukee Film Festival offices with Abacus Architecture. This exciting and unique work environment exceeded everyone’s expectations.
Two other 2018 project highlights demonstrate our capabilities to service specialized markets. We had the pleasure of providing a full scope of services to support the complete renovation of the library at North Lake Elementary School. Furthermore, we continued to make inroads in the senior living market by partnering with Aga Artka Interior Design on BrightStar Care. In addition to this collaboration with our design team, our logistics team has been supporting senior living projects across the country. In 2018, we provided senior living services to 46 of the 50 states and two Canadian provinces. In total, our labor team managed over $1 million in relocation project work.
What’s Ahead in 2019? Great Things!
Last year we invested in a showroom refresh, and this year you will notice a brand refresh. There will be subtle changes to our logo and marketing materials with an emphasis on our three key service areas – interiors, labor and logistics. New and improved in 2019!
This year will also bring a schedule of special events, starting with our – Operation Game Night. Stay tuned for more fun get togethers, networking and educational opportunities.
And of course, there will be exciting new projects that we will share with you throughout the year.
We thank you for being part of the Schroeder Solutions family – Cheers to 2019!
