The SHARKGROUP believes in the importance of a quality infrastructure and modern workplaces. Thanks to the growth of the existing companies and the expansion of the group to include new companies, we have greatly increased the size of our premises. Even we are amazed at the latest figures:
Daycare facilities for dogs
Most of our offices are in Uster, where we have been located at Wermatswilerstrasse 8 since December 1999. However, we have developed a great deal over the years. Our premises now include large showrooms, break rooms and state-of-the-art offices. Workstations for 35 employees are spread over four floors.
With the renovation in 2019 and the additional area of over 300 m², we were able to make a little dream come true. In addition to the modern offices, we finally also have our very own on-site showroom. This is used to impressively present the enia collections and finally provide an up-close experience of the range of products with our many innovative designs and finishes. Direct Handling’s world of skirting boards is also on show and provides an insight into the extensive range from alunox through contego to aquilex.
Interaction is important to the SHARKGROUP. With so many new employees, we ran out of space in the old kitchen and now have a big, new break room with enough seats for everyone and a kitchen that has been designed for the growing team. We head to the lounge area for our morning coffee break and play table football after lunch.
According to psychologists, dogs have a positive effect on working environments. Here at the SHARKGROUP, we can confirm this. Our four-legged team members can play and run around together on a large green space – and even enjoy a heated little house on cold days. And because we know that our little darlings are well taken care of, here in the office, we can relax and work on the SHARKGROUP’s success.
We are passionate about innovative product development. We bring excitement to the market with genuine innovations and need the right infrastructure to do so. In addition to our product development team, we also have our own laboratory in Uster. In a quiet position, in what we endearingly know as the cereal castle, products can be precisely tested and quality standards monitored.
At Profloor AG, decorators and floorers can conveniently pick up a comprehensive range of all kinds of tools on site, from brushes and rollers through machines and profiles to fashionable work clothes. The four floor-laying professionals in the shop, which was extended and renovated at the start of 2020, look forward to your visit.
When you’re dealing with nine companies and multiple broad product ranges, you need an impressive warehouse. In addition to our warehouse space in Uster we also have extensive external warehouse spaces in Tuggen, Uznach and Aulendorf, Germany.
Our entire warehouse range is deliverable within 24/48 hours. We work with Wespe Transport AG and Emons Spedition GmbH as professional partners who reliably deliver our products.
Playing our part in sustainability
The SHARKGROUP’s commitment to the environment does not just extend to the working environment. We have generated solar power since 2016 and therefore help to protect the environment. The SMA Energy system generates 29,800 kWh per year. That is more electricity than used by the entire commercial building. The intelligent control systems ensure that the solar energy is optimally used and feed the excess electricity into the grid. This prevents the creation of approx. 21 tonnes of CO2 every year. This form of power generation is a green alternative that fits well with the philosophy of making optimum use of resources and constantly improving the SHARKGROUP.
