Projectiondesign’s global ambition1 February 2011
"We’ve tripled our customer-facing resources in less than two years,” said projectiondesign International Marketing & Communications Manager, Anders Løkke, who added that the company had effectively decided to give back to its customers more of its revenue in the form of increased customer support.
“Our business has grown spectacularly over the past few years, but we firmly believe there is more to come, said Løkke. “Our ambition is in being the preferred supplier of projection technology to more companies, in more regions of the world. To do that, we need to offer even higher levels of localised support than we currently provide.”
As part of the gearing-up for an increasingly global strategy, projection design has made several significant appointments and The ISE Daily understands that there are more in the pipeline.
