*Aquascape, Inc. Moves Back Into Corporate Headquarters After Partial Roof Collapse Forced Company to Re-locate*
St. Charles, IL – Aquascape, Inc, the innovative leader of water features in North America and inventor of the low-maintenance ecosystem pond has moved office operations back into its corporate headquarters, dubbed “Aqualand.” A partial roof collapse 12 months ago forced the company to temporarily re-locate both its office and warehouse space.
In February 2011, the roof covering Aquascape’s parking lot collapsed on a Sunday afternoon following a major snowstorm that blanketed the Chicago area with 20.6 inches of snow in less than 24 hours.
“Thankfully no one was in or near the building at the time of the collapse,” said Greg Wittstock, CEO and founder of Aquascape. “Our team worked quickly to re-locate both our office and warehouse operations and we were able to minimize the disruption of business to our customers. After a year of working from a temporary location, we’re extremely grateful to be back at Aqualand.”
Aquascape was granted office occupancy on January 30th. Warehouse operations are expected to move back to Aqualand in the near future. Construction continues on the company’s atrium at Aqualand and the Aquascape Water Gardening Store is slated to open for business on March 20th. The store carries everything necessary to install and maintain a beautiful water feature. Aquatic plants and live fish are available for purchase in addition to pond supplies and water gardening books.
