Jansen AG and Zigurat Global Institute of Technology are pleased to announce their international partnership to foster innovation for architectural, engineering design, and construction industries.
Zigurat continues to build their global, cross-border network with companies and organizations that strive for architectural innovation by adding Jansen AG as a corporate sponsor. Jansen AG is an international leader in steel façade and fenestration systems. Their systems have helped shape skylines of major cities around the world. Zigurat is a leading educational institution that promotes innovative approaches for architecture, design, and construction. They offer a variety of innovative educational programs, corporate services, and an extensive network of over 15,000 alumni around the world. Jansen’s steel building systems are often customized to enable architectural creativity to the outside perimeter. In addition, many of Jansen’s steel building systems are designed to protect people and assets against fire, storms, and violent threats. Therefore, an essential component of Jansen’s technical support is active engagement with architects and engineers while their projects are in the design phase. Education is a key component to help enable architectural creativity and optimize a building’s security. While both organizations are committed to educate the AEC communities, the partnership also includes opportunities for internal educational advancement. Founded in 1923, Jansen AG seated in Oberriet/Switzerland develops, produces and sells welded and drawn precision steel profile systems as well as plastics products for the construction industry. Since 1978, Jansen is also the exclusive Swiss distribution part-ner of the German Schüco International KG, distributing their aluminium profile systems for the building sector. In January 2021 Jansen acquired from the Welser Profile Group its subsidiary RP Technik GmbH, a provider of steel solution systems for façades, windows and doors. Today, the Jansen group is 100% family owned, employs around 620 people internationally, and generates a turnover of roughly CHF 200 Mio. Jansen products are a synonym for Swiss quality and innovation world-wide.
