Projector manufacturer Christie has completed the latest stage of its South American expansion plans by opening its new offices in Mexico.

Customers and business partners in the country were in attendance for a celebration at the facility, which has a showroom displaying Christie's latest technologies.

Christie MicroTiles, Christie Brio, Christie Solaria One and Christie CP2220 projectors are among the products that will be on show at the offices.

Jack Kline, president and chief executive officer of Christie Digital Systems USA, stated that the opening of new offices in Mexico is key to the firm's ability to meet "the accelerating demand for Christie's digital cinema, Pro AV, visualisation and simulation solutions and services throughout Mexico and Central America".

He added: "Investing in local resources and training will ensure that Christie will be well placed to enjoy the benefits of the expansion of the region over the long term and continue to establish itself as a major player within the Mexican and Central American markets."

Christie's general manager for Mexico territory and Central America is Ernesto Armus and he said the opening of new offices in the country represents the company's long term commitment to growing the business in Mexico.

"We will now be able to offer to our trusted partners and end users a more efficient service and quicker response support team, and of course our new facilities will be open to them for their own use," he said.
