Commenting on the opening of the new facility, Lin Yu, vice president, Christie Asia Pacific, said, “I would like to congratulate Christie India on the official opening of its new and bigger facility. India is one of our key markets in Asia and the new office will help to expand our presence and deepen our synergistic relationships with our local partners and customers in India. We have seen significant growth in the Indian market and there’s continued strong potential for our full spectrum of comprehensive visual solutions. As a leader with more than 85 years of experience in the visual industry, we are definitely well-prepared to support the growth in the Indian market.”
Christie has had a strong presence in the Indian market for more than 10 years, with Christie India recognised as the leading player in high brightness rental staging market in India. Working with its established partner network, Christie India has accomplished a number of firsts in the visual solutions industry. It is the first company to offer 20, 000-lumen high-brightness projectors for sale in India, and the first and only company to date to accomplish fixed-installed video mapping projects in the country. Christie India’s projects include the Old Fort and Guru Tegh Bahadur Memorial Park in Delhi, the brilliant projection mapping performance on the facades of Jodphur’s renowned Umaid Bhawan Palace, and the deployment of close to 200 Christie Roadster Series projectors for last year’s general elections, which was the largest deployment of Christie projectors for a single event in India to date.
Michael Bosworth, general manager, Christie India, added, “The opening of our new facility marks a new milestone for Christie in India. It represents our continued and sustained efforts in staying ahead of the competition and constantly meeting the needs of all our customers and partners who have supported us over the years. With the bigger and better facilities for sales, servicing and warehousing, I’m confident that we can provide better response and assistance to all our customers on technical, sales and related issues in a shorter turnaround time.”
