Topic: PanAm Office Still In Zurich Switzerland?

Hi everybody,

Today I've noticed something as I was driving out of Zurich.
There was still a plate with the name "PanAm", it was pretty new as the building was renovated if you search it on google street view:

So, I've searched the Internet and found nothing!
Maybe you guys know what's up with that...
Is this the company who runs the bankruptcy?
Is it a company which is setting up something new?
If it would be just some kind of P.O. Box it would be in Zug or something but not in Zurich!

Thanks for any kind of hint or solution
Regards,
Lucien

Isn't that where the NW ticket off was, or close to also?

I don't think they had a ticket office in ZRH? And it's pretty far away from the city center, so it's not what you call frequented

Is it just me, or do others also don't see a PanAm sign? In the link you provided, I don't see it.

I think this is the posters point - the PanAm graphic is not shown in Google Street View but apparently is there now, so it must be new.

Maybe Pan Am railways has an office there. It isn't uncommon for railroads (and other types of shippers) to have sales offices all over the place, sometimes VERY far away from where they actually do business. I know Missouri Pacific had offices in Europe and Asia.

Alas, it appears to be a new film company given the website under construction if you look at the following:

It could have been PamAnn advertising an upcoming show in Zurich?

On a side note. the PA final settlements were made right before Christmas. Pan American World Airways is officially gone.

It's the wrong address but maybe it's the same company

Yes in Google Street View the sign is not yet there, as I said the building was renovated.
The next time I drive by I will take a picture, I could swear it was the original font like here:

just without the logo

EDIT:

Ok I got it! It was the film company:
http://www.panamfilm.com/
The address is right, the font is pretty much the same
Thanks everybody for your help
