Christopher Spahr is RTW’s U.S. Director of Sales and Operations
As part of its expansion into the U.S. market, RTW (NAB booth #C1844)— a leading vendor of visual audio meters and monitoring devices for professional broadcast, production, post-production and quality control—announces the opening of its new U.S. branch, RTW International Corp., in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. The new office is the first U.S. location launched by the company, which is based in Cologne, Germany.
With the advent of the CALM Act, RTW recognized a clear need in the U.S. marketplace for its loudness metering tools. RTW states that it prides itself on providing the best customer service it possibly can, and recognizes the importance of location to its customers, which is why the company has opened its Lancaster office.
The new U.S. office will house all customer service, repair and final product assembly activities for U.S.-based RTW customers, further reducing product delivery lead times.
To lead the office, RTW has hired Christopher Spahr to be its new U.S. Director of Sales and Operations. In this new role, Spahr will oversee all brand, sales and market development in the United States. In addition, Werner Haase, from the RTW development team in Cologne, will join Spahr in Lancaster, overseeing product service and final assembly.
“Our U.S. customers are very important to us,” says Andreas Tweitmann, CEO, RTW. “The goal for the new production facility in Lancaster is to focus our efforts on the U.S. market. Not only does this help us support our growing network of dealers, led by Group One, but ultimately, it benefits our end users, as we will be able to provide them with the best services and availability of products possible. With Christopher heading up RTW’s U.S. team, we will be able to stay in close contact with all of the dealers in this network, helping them to understand and anticipate current and future needs of the North American market so that we can produce devices specifically for U.S. needs.”
