Ownership and Management Change
In late December of 2019 Mike Zurbrigen, co-owner and co-founder of Euro-Wall Systems LLC bought out his partner and brother Scott Zurbrigen. Mike, having being named to Whos Who and winning 2 other awards this year for community and business leadership. Mike is very excited about the continued new challenges and opportunities that lie ahead for Euro-Wall, its partners and employees. With this new ownership change, Euro-Wall is committed and continues to focus on two things; respect for people and continuous improvement. According to Zurbrigen: "This is a much needed change here at Euro-Wall, for our people; employees, customers and vendors alike. Aligning our organization with one shared vision, all rowing in the same direction is what we really need to do with regards to improving our ability to meet the ever changing needs of our customers and exceed their expectations. Owning our failures and mistakes is key to improving our performance and value as a partner. We will continue to aggressively move towards improving every area of our operations. Our goals are simple. Find our part in every problem and issue, and fix it whether it be a change in policy, product, process or people."
Euro-Wall will always do the right thing and we will sacrifice for our employees, customers and vendors. As we move into this new era of our development we will continue to focus on our core values and making sure that Integrity, Innovation, Passion, Excellence and Dedication is at the center of everything we do. As we move through 2020 with all of its challenges, we have been able to stay safe, healthy and improve on time delivery by 99% and quality by a whopping 98%! Last year at this time we had over 57 jobs late and today we have 3. We have added 2 CNC's and 2 automatic saws to improve not only on time performance but the fit and finish of our products within the last year. All new products are around the corner. We are well on our way to becoming the company and partner we strive to be. We are so grateful for this opportunity to continue to grow with you and your team. Your feedback and partnership is integral to our success. Please let us know where we can improve!

Euro-Wall Customer Service Commandments
Euro-Wall's goals are to distinguish ourselves as the number 1 leader in the world with regards to customer service. Our team wishes to engage in a process that all other businesses look to Euro-Wall as the undisputed leader in managing client relationships. Check out what we have so far:
1. ALWAYS ADVOCATE FOR THE CLIENT/CUSTOMER/CALLER!
2. IMAGINE YOURSELF IN THE CUSTOMER’S SHOES!
3. WHAT WOULD YOU WANT IF YOU WERE THE CUSTOMER?
4. HOW WOULD YOU WANT TO BE TREATED IF YOU WERE THE CALLER?
5. ALWAYS LOOK AT THE SITUATION FROM THE CUSTOMER’S VIEWPOINT.
6. WHEN SPEAKING WITH THE CUSTOMER ONLY USE LANGUAGE AND A TONE OF VOICE THAT IS KIND, CARING AND LOVING.
7. Ask yourself these questions
- Did Euro-Wall or Euro-Wall vendors cause any harm?
- Are we late on this job?
- Have we messed other orders up before or have we been late on any other previous orders with this customer?
- If we have caused problems before, how many and how bad?
- How much does this customer order from us?
- What is their order history?
- Is there extenuating circumstances? A special case?
- Is this a relationship issue? (ANSWER IS ALWAYS YES!!!!)
- What is the total cost to remedy the situation?
- What is the right thing to do. (DO NOT RECITE EURO-WALL POLICY)
8. Always Ask the customer what they would like us to do to help them.
9. ALWAYS, ALWAYS, ALWAYS Thank the customer from the bottom of your heart for their business and let them know that we appreciate the opportunity to serve them and their customers. If they ever feel that we are not being a good partner; please let us know what we can do better.
10. NEVER, NEVER, NEVER make jokes or negative comments about our customers to other employees, suppliers about a customer. If we do, then we are not meeting the threshold of our core value of INTEGRITY.
