SSQ Riverstone® architectural stone

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>“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.”</i>

Kreissparkasse Wiedenbrück has already bought sites for the next seven branches and these should be open within the next five to seven years.
