Friedrich Air Conditioning has moved its headquarters into 22,000 square feet of space at the Union Square II Building at 10001 Reunion Place after almost 40 years at 4200 Pan Am Expressway.
The move included about 90 employees engaged in management, accounting, marketing and sales, product management, engineering, information systems, credit, customer service, human resources and production management.
In addition to the building’s well-illuminated space, a new open floor plan facilitates better communication. Closer proximity to San Antonio International Airport was another factor in the move, making visits to Friedrich’s headquarters much easier for customers and vendors.
“This new space at Union Square II allows us to consolidate our staff onto a single floor,” said George Van Hoomissen, CEO. “It is modern and open with design details that reflect our core business. For example, copper air conditioning coil was used as a design element of the reception desk while employee work stations feature cabinets with a side that emulates the outside grille of our window air conditioners,” Van Hoomissen continued.
“So far, we’ve received excellent feedback from our employees and visitors,” he said.
