Crestron Expands Georgia And Florida Offices In Space And Numbers
Company growth in Atlanta and Orlando adds new training facilities and staff
ROCKLEIGH, NJ, November 7, 2003 - As part of the company's continued growth and development, Crestron, the world's leading manufacturer of control technology, is announcing the expansion of its Atlanta and Orlando offices, as well as additions to both of these regional staffs.

The new home of Crestron Florida is:

1060 Maitland Center Commons
Suite 150
Maitland, Florida 32751

Phone and fax numbers remain the same as in the previous location:

Tel: 407.261.0459
Fax: 407.261.0913

The new facility is twice the size of the former office, and is located just seven miles north of Orlando and sixteen miles from the Orlando International Airport.

"Everyone at Crestron Florida is excited about the opportunities that this expanded space will offer," said Regional Director John Gutekunst. "Our new facility will allows us to provide improved technical support and even more training capabilities for our dealers."

Crestron is also pleased to announce that Ron Callis and Nathan Holmes are part of the Florida residential sales team.

Ron's territory encompasses the eastern half of the state and the Caribbean (area codes 305, 321, 407, 561, 754, 772, 786 and 954), with the exception of the Dominican Republic and Haiti, which are handled by Crestron Latin America. Nathan's territory covers the Western side (area codes 239, 352 386, 727, 813, 850, 863, 904, 941).

Crestron has also expanded its Atlanta office, with most of additional space dedicated to customer training.

By taking over the suite adjacent to its Roswell, GA office, the newly expanded space triples the size of Crestron South's training facility and presents opportunities to hold more classes and offer larger class sizes to the region's dealers.

"We're really excited about our office expansion at Crestron South," says Regional Director Landon Lovett. "Our dealers come to our facility for training and having more space for them can only make for a more positive experience and create a more comfortable environment."

Crestron South has added Joe Laurin as regional sales manager for residential products in the Carolinas and southern Virginia. He comes to Crestron from one of our premier residential dealers, Matrix Installations, in Knoxville, TN as their custom Sales and Marketing Manager.
