I have found my work at Schöck to be interesting, exciting and rewarding. I am very happy to be working at bringing products to North America that are good for our environment, that improve the living space for the tenants of the buildings on which they are incorporated, and that provide value for the owners of the buildings on which they are used. Being part of great company that cares for its employees, lives by values beyond just making a profit, and one that will never be sold for the sake of making a quick buck were all ideals that brought me to Schöck - the company has more than exceeded my expectations on all fronts.
