The town of Schloß Holte-Stukenbrock lies in the district of Gütersloh in the state of North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany, and is home to the latest branch of the Kreissparkasse Wiedenbrück bank. SSQ Riverstone architectural stone was selected as the choice of floor covering from a variety of different stones presented to the architect.
The new branch opened in March 2008. SSQ’s chairman, Ahmed El-Helw, was invited to the opening ceremony and was delighted to be told by Kreissparkasse Wiedenbrück’s managing director that, “I’m so impressed with the quality and beauty of the stone used for the flooring that I would like it specified in the design of all future banks we are building throughout Germany.”
Kreissparkasse Wiedenbrück has already bought sites for the next seven branches and these should be open within the next five to seven years.
