Rockleigh, NJ (January 12, 2009)–Crestron Electronics experienced record breaking one-month sales for December 2008, making it financially the best month in the company’s 40 year history.
Crestron, manufacturer of commercial and residential control and automation systems, has reportedly posted double-digit sales growth for 20 consecutive years. The New Jersey-based company’s fiscal year ended in June with annual revenue of more than $400 million.
“Our industry and our company are not recession-proof or immune to economic conditions,” said Crestron Executive Vice President Randy Klein, “but Crestron is uniquely positioned to help our dealers and partners thrive even in these uncertain times. We have a responsibility to develop new technologies, get them to market and create more business opportunities.”
Crestron, which does all its manufacturing in the U.S., introduced 70 new products in 2008 (plus 200 accessories), averaging a new product release every five days. The company has 22 new products scheduled to launch this month alone. On the 2008 Top 50 Systems Integrators list, published by Systems Contractor News last week, the top installers did not experience a drop-off in sales, and 9 out of 10 were Crestron dealers.
