Axon Opens Russian Office
The Russian/ CIS markets have been a strong sales generator for Axon over many years with revenues growing strongly. One of the largest projects for Axon in many years was the equipping of 12 Outside Broadcast (OB) vehicles, a media centre and mobile master control room (MCR) for ANO / Panorama. Working with local systems integrators, other key customers include the Georgian Parliament, Technostyle Technology in Moscow, MTG Viasat in Riga, NAT GEO ICTV and Bank TV in the Ukraine and TRK in Kiev.
The opening of the Moscow office enables Axon to provide a local presence and support service inj the region. It will enable the company to support both local systems integrators and key direct customer accounts with specialist technical and operational services. The Russian office, AXON’s 6th branch office, will be run by Cor Pennings who is relocated to Moscow.
“Russia and its surrounding countries are becoming increasingly important for us”, comments AXON’s Director Marketing & Sales Harry Kanters. “Opening a local office enables us to interact more closely with the customers and supply local support. The new office shows both Axon’s and Cor’s commitment to the region”.
Based in Gilze, Netherlands, Axon develops, manufactures and markets high quality broadcast equipment for the conversion, processing and compliance recording of audio and video signals. Products integrate advanced signal processing techniques, innovative engineering and modular flexibility and provide high quality, affordability and reliability within mission critical applications.
