Sydney, Australia, 6th February 2017 – Crestron, the global leader in advanced control and automation systems, today announces significant investment in Asia Pacific, including a new physical brand presence in India, North East Asia and China.
The official expansion into these markets now allows the company to further enhance its service and support to customers in the region. The expanded presence and business strategy is being overseen by Stuart Craig, CEO, Asia Pacific, Crestron, who is based out of the Crestron APAC Head Office in Sydney, Australia.
Each of the three new facilities includes a fully functional Crestron Experience Centre (CEC), with state-of-the-art training facilities and various active workspaces. Guests can experience the latest Crestron solutions first-hand, which allows people to control entire environments with the push of a button, integrating systems such as A/V, lighting, shading, IT, security, unified communications, BMS, and HVAC to provide greater comfort, convenience, and security. These facilities allow the local Crestron team to provide hands-on, comprehensive training and education on the latest solution offerings to partners and customers.
The new, wholly owned Crestron subsidiary in India includes a headquarters at RMZ Ecoworld, Bangalore, and supporting regional offices. In Hong Kong, a new facility in Quarry Bay is supported by a dedicated presence in all key North East Asia markets including Korea, Macau and Taiwan. The Hong Kong headquarters will be expanded by mid year to offer a full Crestron Experience Centre, yet the facility is currently fully operational and the new training facility will open in early April.
Further, in exclusive partnership with Shanghai Golden Bridge, Crestron China brings a tailored local presence to the region, establishing facilities in Shanghai, Beijing, Guangzhou, Jinan, Chengdu, Hefei, Kunming and Guiyang. The Crestron China HQ with CEC is being built in Shanghai and is scheduled to be open in May.
Stuart Craig, CEO, Asia Pacific, Crestron, said: “Asia Pacific is an increasingly important market for Crestron and we are investing to support our customers, ensuring opportunities for all. Crestron is committed to providing our partners in the region with the highest level of customer experience and the tools and technologies to help our partners grow their business. Our goal is to provide the full range of our market leading technologies locally and to ensure our customer service leads the industry.
“In all regions we are open for business today and over the coming weeks customers will see all of our facilities expand even further. As we approach the upcoming Integrated Systems Europe, which will see many new generation solutions released, our APAC customers can feel very assured and confident in the investments Crestron is making across the board," said Craig.
The new direct footprint will allow Crestron to help grow the business of its local partners and resellers, allowing more clients in the Asia Pacific region to optimise their biggest investments spanning people, spaces and technology.
