Founded in 1913, privately-held Clestra (www.clestra.com)
is headquartered in Strasbourg; U.S. headquarters is in Doylestown, PA.
Clestra, with more than 1,200 employees, is a global leader in
designing, producing, and installing relocatable office partitions and
ceilings in office buildings and providing turnkey clean room
The company has four manufacturing facilities in France, China, India
and South Korea. A fifth plant in the Middle East is expected to be
operational within 24 months.
The China facility recently instituted Equalios, a water cooled, chilled
ceiling technology that reduces energy usage between 30-40% while
guaranteeing ultimate comfort for building occupiers. Equalios has been
installed in Parkview Green Beijing, the first LEED platinum mixed-use
building in China. The South Korea facility recently introduced a new
partition system for cold and hot aisle containment booths providing
major energy savings for data centers. The system allows the user to
only cool an enclosed cold zone instead of the entire area.
These recent innovations further illustrate that Clestra is
well-positioned to continue to be an industry leader as it begins
another century of doing business worldwide.
Millions of people around the world currently work in a Clestra office
environment – some of which include Chanel’s headquarters in Paris,
Empire State and Chrysler Buildings in New York City, Burj Khalifa
building in Dubai (world’s tallest building) in the United Arab
Emirates, and airports from Paris to Istanbul. Clestra’s clean room
solutions are also being used by numerous government organizations and
in a wide variety of industries -- from pharmaceutical and electronics
labs to watchmakers Rolex and Vacheron Constantin.
