Lawo, a German manufacturer of IP audio, video and control infrastructure solutions, is expanding its US operations, adding personnel and opening a new support and logistics hub in Elmsford NY.
Triple the size and capacity of its previous facility, Lawo’s new hub will serve as warehouse, test facility, training center and East Coast Sales and Support office. The facility supports Lawo’s existing US headquarters in New York NY, West Coast Sales and Support office in Los Angeles CA, and Canadian headquarters in Toronto.
To oversee operations at the new hub, Ricardo Martinez has assumed the position of North-American Logistics and Support Coordinator, as of December 1. He holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Business Management and comes to Lawo from his previous post as Operations Supervisor with Autonomic Controls.
At the same time, Lawo has announced the hiring of Hans Juergens as Broadcast Engineer for pre- and post-sales technical support. Juergens is well-known for his work as a staff and contract engineer for companies such as ABC, CBS, NBC, ESPN and Vyvx Solutions, and most recently was a Mobile Unit Engineer for NEP Broadcasting. He brings with him a comprehensive knowledge of all aspects of broadcast production, including video delivery over both satellite and terrestrial IP networks.
