Hendersonville, TN and Las Vegas, NV - January 8, 2004 - DeCorp Americas, Inc., the leader in advanced flat wiring and interconnect technologies, today introduced its FlatWire ReadyTM Flat -Panel Television Installation Kit.

It is currently being featured in the DeCorp Americas booth, #19495, at the 2004 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas.

FlatWire changes all that," said Robb Sexton, president and CEO of DeCorp Americas. "With the introduction of this installation kit, we are helping to usher in the flat -panel revolution. Enabling consumers to hang and connect a flat -panel television easily and affordably makes it a luxury more readily embraced by home theater enthusiasts and design -conscious decorators alike."
