façade construction specialist since 1984

In 1984, the façade construction specialist seele, based in Gersthofen, was founded by master glazier Gerhard Seele and steel construction designer Siegfried Gossner. Through the worldwide realization of technical façade constructions and sophisticated building envelopes, the company grew steadily. Today, around 1,000 employees work for the entire group worldwide. Because it is the only owner-managed company with global operations in this industry seele is unique.

Architectural, engineering and economic demands on a building envelope are increasingly merging to form a complex conglomerate. seele brings together the knowledge needed for this and is able to design and construct corresponding structures in unprecedented quality. A profound understanding of materials results in unique solutions using glass, steel, aluminium, membranes and other high-tech materials.
