It all began with a old and rundown cardboard factory
However, with some new and innovative ideas, the corner stone for the development of ECOCELL was born.
1990 – 2014
At the beginning of the 1990s, Fredy Iseli bought a old cardboard factory in the Canton Thurgau because of its exposed location. In respect of the employees, which consisted out of 30 people, a idea for a product had been born:
to produce transport pallets out of corrugated cardboard as a light, stable and recyclable new product for the transport industry.
As an architect, Fredy Iseli always followed the idea of using the structure of the currugated cardboard as honeycombs for the construction of houses. In the following years, with the support of acknowledged institutes and scientific labs, he developed a special coating method to give the structure of the honeycombs the necessary features needed for construction industry. The result is the ECOCELLCONCRETE-HONYCOMB as the key part of the ECOCELLFAST- BUILDING-SYSTEM and its further optimized ECOCELL-US-BUILDING-SYSTEM. Over many years, a team of experts in science and techniques has accompanied the development process up to the series production stage. It is a development based on his architectural practice.
