The new office is headed up by technical sales representative Alexy Kostikov. Valery Skunstev is overseeing Crestron training in Moscow.
Crestron UK marketing manager Petra van Meeuwen told II: "Russia is a very important market for Crestron and is growing fast. The plan is to further develop this market in both residential and commercial areas, which is why we have invested in an office. This enables us to be closer to the dealers and offer training and top-class service."
Serge Philippo, Crestron sales manager for Eastern Europe & Russia put the new office in the context of rapidly increasing sales in the residential and commercial markets throughout the Eurasian region. "The opening of our new Moscow City office will help to support this rapidly growing business and provide the infrastructure to propel future success," he said. "The vertical markets and applications that Crestron has penetrated gives a good indication of the wide spread of opportunities throughout the region. Crestron technology is being installed in luxury homes, condominiums, universities and government buildings as well as hotels, financial institutions and yachts."
