Weiler Corporation is family-owned global leader in abrasives, operating for more than 70 years. However, isolated working conditions and insufficient brand emphasis had resulted in a lack of knowledge – and, subsequently, pride – of their legacy.
As part of their overall rebranding strategy, Weiler hired Spillman Farmer to redesign their headquarters to reflect their evolving identity. SFA recognized the renovation of Weiler’s facility as an opportunity to unify the workforce and physical infrastructure to facilitate collaboration, efficiency, and collective identity. The majority of the work spaces have an open-concept feel, allowing for collaboration between departments. The company’s new “grandstand” features tiered seating in front of a large video wall, used for company training, presentations, and celebrations.
The Weiler renovation and expansion project helped the client advance their bottom line. The reprogramming of the space allowed for physical barriers to be removed, which has since facilitated a breakdown of silos in the workplace. The efficiencies created by the new floor plan layout allow employees to react more quickly to customer needs. Following the renovations, Weiler has boosted productivity and increased their direct field sales support by 60 percent.
The Spillman Farmer team has extensive experience designing office spaces and tenant fit-outs that uniquely reflect our clients. We recently designed Tower 6, a 12-story high-rise that is transforming the Lehigh Valley skyline, as well as fit-outs for seven of its tenants. Our firm also transformed a former garment manufacturing building into Pi, an incubator space designed for technology-oriented start-up companies.
