Christie to Acquire VR Solutions to Accommodate Rapid Market Growth in Australia, India and New Zealand Acquisitions Will Help Fill Demand for Christie's Products and Solutions as Markets Expand in These Regions
"We're excited by the potential of this acquisition," said Jack Kline, president and chief operating officer, Christie Digital Systems USA, Inc. "VR Solutions is a natural fit with Christie, having been a valued partner and integrator of Christie products for several years. The team at VR Solutions also brings a wealth of expertise in design, sales and service of visual technology solutions to expanding markets for Christie."
Acquiring the VR Solutions' companies is one component of Christie's continuing, long-term commitment to better serve its rapidly expanding customer base worldwide. The new Australian subsidiary of Christie will become the main sales and support entity in Australia and New Zealand and the new Indian subsidiary of Christie will be integrated with Christie's existing Indian operations.
Lin Yu, vice president, Christie Asia Pacific, who will oversee these new Christie operations, was equally enthusiastic. "On completion of the acquisition, the existing capabilities of our Indian office will be expanded across markets and in Australia and New Zealand this move will also expand the support we can provide to independent theatres for their digital projection conversions," said Yu.
