Werner Electric Launches Virtual Google Tour

Cottage Grove, MN – Werner Electric is excited to announce the launch of their Google Business Photos Project. Utilizing the Google Street View technology, they hired local Google Trusted Photographer Stephanie Windfeldt to capture over 40 hi-res 360-degree panoramic views of the Regional Distribution Center (RDC) and Corporate facility in Cottage Grove, MN. The photos were then blended together in the Street View fashion, allowing you to seemingly walk through the entire building.

Using this new and innovative virtual tour is a way for Werner Electric’s customers and potential employees to view the culture, capabilities (TSC wall, Vision lab), and work environment that they provide each day. The tour moves throughout the building seamlessly and highlights the new mezzanine and shipping area of the warehouse.

“This was a great opportunity for Werner Electric to show their innovative side and willingness to be a first mover in the industry. We are always open to taking advantage of new technology to further showcase our unique services and solutions,” said Dustin Ranem, Werner’s Graphic Design Coordinator. “From a marketing perspective this also increases SEO and allows us to stand out even more in Google search results, adding a ‘See inside’ option to our already present Google Plus profile on the sidebar.”

Werner Electric is a distributor of premier electrical supplies and services offering solutions in the realm of Automation, Clean Energy, Construction, DataComm, Lighting and Switchgear. With headquarters in the Twin Cities, MN they have a rich history of electrical distribution in Minnesota and western Wisconsin going back to 1920. After being acquired by their joint venture partners Werner Electric Supply of Wisconsin and Van Meter Inc. of Iowa in 2001, through their shared resources they together became the 14th largest electrical distributor in the United States.
