Pioneer Cladding and Glazing Systems was established in 1999 and specializes in partnering with general contractors, architects and engineers to design, fabricate and install unitized curtain wall and custom building facades. The Company was originally housed in a small office suite and has since grown to have a presence throughout the region with the inclusion of satellite locations in Baltimore, Indianapolis, Tennessee and Cleveland. Today, they are ranked as one of the top contractors in their specialty and in the country.
The Company quickly outgrew their previous space and in order to continue to grow their business in the Cleveland market, they purchased a 48,000 square foot building located on Brookpark Road that had been vacant for over 10 years and required significant upgrades. The new facility now consists of new offices and a shop that fabricates, assembles, and ships finished curtain wall panels to construction projects throughout Cleveland and surrounding areas.
In order to assist with the project financing, the City provided an $180,000 forgivable loan through the Vacant Property Initiative Program. The project created approximately 25 full time jobs with an approximate new payroll of $1.7 million in the City of Cleveland.
