Toronto, Ontario (Sept 1, 2015) — Lectrosonics is pleased to announce the expansion of its Canadian office to a new, larger facility conveniently located near the city of Toronto’s entertainment district, which includes many broadcast and film production locations known as Hollywood North as well as the city’s famed theatre district, The new Canadian facility is located just south of the Bloor subway line and is designed to be a lab-type environment, which includes a new demo/showroom, expanded service department, more parking and easy load-in capabilities — intended as a place to serve Lectrosonics clients’ every need.
“Our whole intention in relocating to this facility is to be close and accessible enough to assist our clients with all their RF needs for a production or fixed installation – things like spectrum planning, frequency coordination, even working cooperatively with other manufacturers involved, so our clients feel that Lectrosonics is an essential part of their production,” says Colin Bernard. Director of Canadian Operations, Lectrosonics. “Now we have a convenient location and environment that our clients can easily access. This is intended to be a marketing/sales support office that offers thought leadership, RF consulting and mission critical solutions for our valued customers.”
The Canadian facility is fully-equipped extension of the Lectrosonics’ headquarters, with access to all service data and diagrams, and the ability do all warranty and service for Lectrosonics products in Canada. The service department, headed by RF Technician and Technical Support Specialist Joe Burtinsky, is sound proof and completely self-sufficient in terms of being able to assist customers.
