Crestron Named Manufacturer of the Year

Crestron receives UK Manufacturer of the Year Honors at Custom Installer Trade Awards

Crestron was named UK Manufacturer of the Year at the Inside Hi -Fi and Custom Installer Trade Awards 2008. The ceremony was held recently in the Novotel at London's ExCeL. Crestron was recognized for its significant contribution to the development of the custom installation market and ongoing commitment to the company's ever -expanding national network of dealers, partners and programmers.

Commenting on the award, Crestron UK Residential Sales Manager, Phil Solomons said, "It is always fantastic to receive awards, especially this one. To be named Manufacturer of the Year from those within the CI industry is a great honor. We take our relationships with our dealers extremely seriously and we are committed to supporting them in whatever way we can to grow the market together."
The award punctuates a significant expansion period for the company that transformed its UK operation with a move to new headquarters at Munro House in Cobham. This impressive 12,500 sq ft facility has already enabled hundreds of installers from across the UK to get hands -on experience of Crestron award -winning products and technology, as well as participate in popular training courses, such as the two -day Crestron Foundation course, which was also acknowledged in the Training Course of the Year category.
In addition to its new UK offices, Crestron has released over 70 new product developments in 2008. These include the TPS -6X, a finalist in the Product Launch of the Year category. Launched to international acclaim at CEDIA EXPO 2008, the TPS -6X revolutionizes touchpanel design for the 21st century and reaffirms Crestron as the leading innovator of advanced control and automation systems.
