AV Stumpfl, a leading Austrian manufacturer of AV technologies from projection screens to servers and control systems, has officially announced the opening of AV Stumpfl China.
The new office will operate with the aim to develop and expand AV Stumpfl’s presence in the Chinese mainland’s AV market. Headquartered in Shanghai, the hand-picked team consists of experienced system engineers, as well as AV and marketing experts.
Francis Lee, CEO of AV Stumpfl China, stated: “We are seeing a lot of growth potential when it comes to AV Stumpfl’s importance in mainland China. The company is completely independent and family owned, has a very good reputation, award winning products and an incredibly enthusiastic team. Our own AV Stumpfl China team will be able to supplement this great foundation further by providing direct technical training, product support and maintenance services. As a first step, we will be focusing on a number of key markets, including theme park attractions, museum installations and live-events.”
The establishment of a permanent office in China follows a 12-month period in which AV Stumpfl has actively expanded its international distribution network to include partners in the US, Canada and Japan, with a particular focus on media servers.
Commenting on the strategic significance of the Chinese market, AV Stumpfl CEO Fabian Stumpfl concluded: “It is not a secret that the Chinese market is of great importance to most international AV manufacturers. Since our family name is also the company name, we wanted to wait for the right moment and the right partner to expand our activities in mainland China. We believe the right time is now and that Francis Lee and his great team are perfect for the job. Their extensive AV industry experience and deep understanding of media server applications makes us confident that AV Stumpfl China will be a highly successful company.”
