CEA SHOWCASES CRESTRON ON NATIONAL BUS TOUR

Crestron Represents American Innovation and Ingenuity on CEA National Tour

ROCKLEIGH, NJ, July 23, 2008 – The Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) launched the “America Wins with Trade? bus tour, which will visit 28 states in seven weeks, with scheduled stops at the Democratic and Republican National Conventions. A primary mission of the tour is to highlight CE companies that operate domestically and drive the nation’s economy. As the global leader of residential and commercial control and automation systems, Crestron Electronics, Inc., exemplifies American business and innovation by designing, manufacturing, and shipping worldwide from northern New Jersey.

Crestron invited CEA executives, local and federal government officials to an exclusive inside look at the company’s state-of-the-art operations. Esteemed guests were treated to a rare view of the 100,000 square foot Research Center where future technology is developed; product testing and quality control techniques used for more than 1000 products; and efficient manufacturing processes.

“Crestron was built from the ground up here in New Jersey. While others move manufacturing off-shore, we remain loyal to our roots. It’s because of our talented and dedicated people that we continue to flourish,? said Randy Klein, Crestron Executive Vice President. “We take exceptional steps to ensure the quality of our products and support, and make considerable investment in our community, employees and partners.?

Rockleigh mayor, Nicholas Langella; Peter Kortright, III, Bergen County Economic Development Corporation, and Michael Muldowney from U.S. Congressman Scott Garrett’s office were among the respected visitors on the Crestron tour. All were impressed with the extensive Crestron testing and quality control technology, such as the high voltage testing lab (that exceeds UL and CE requirements) and the FCC RF-compliance testing chamber.

Additionally, each new product Crestron develops is subjected to stress, static electricity and lightning simulation tests, and every finished unit is inspected to ensure that it functions to design specifications.

“With 35% of sales of its US-made products going to overseas markets, Crestron is a great example of how trade is an engine of economic growth,? added Gary Shapiro, CEA President and CEO.
