Building materials industry
SCHWENK, with head office in Ulm,
founded in 1847.
Over several generations, this company has grown into a corporate group comprising several subsidiaries and affiliates. The parent company in the SCHWENK building materials group is SCHWENK Zement KG, now under its fifth generation of family management. SCHWENK, with its sectors of cement, concrete, sand & gravel and concrete pumps is the oldest family-run company in the German cement industry. In accordance with its guiding principle of 'Living building materials', SCHWENK is shaping a world in which future generations can feel good about living. This is demonstrated very clearly in the commitment to sustainability that underpins manufacture of its products. Here, a holistic approach is followed that makes economic, ecological and social sense. As well as quality, environmental protection and nature conservation, health & safety at work are top priorities at SCHWENK. As part of the company approach to health management, the physical and mental health of its employees is fostered.
SCHWENK has decided in favour of free-standing luminaires from Herbert Waldmann GmbH & Co. KG for its service centre in Landsberg. In the office premises, several LAVIGO luminaires now provide optimum workplace lighting. The LAVIGO LED free-standing luminaire combines classical design with innovative technology. Thanks to new and more powerful LED modules, LAVIGO delivers a higher proportion of indirect light than comparable luminaires. This reduces the need for direct light, it creates a more uniform level of background lighting, and it is very agreeable for the human eye. Furthermore, the direct light component uses light-intensifying CDP micro-prisms, including Light Forming Technology. This reduces glare to an optimum extent. All of these factors are ideal prerequisites for a concentrated, efficient and agreeable workplace atmosphere. Also, the free-standing luminaires create a pleasant overall impression.
