CYPRESS, CA -- Christie®, the world leader in digital cinema projection, will celebrate the official opening of its new China manufacturing facility in Shenzhen on November 3rd, with key customers, suppliers and officials in attendance. The facility has been operational since late spring of 2010, assembling and shipping Christie CP2220 DLP Cinema® projectors. Grand opening celebrations will recognize the contributions of the company's vibrant and highly skilled workforce, many of whom are drawn from the highly educated and talented pool in Shenzhen.

"We are very proud to be celebrating our official opening. With over 85,000 sq. ft. of space, the Shenzhen facility is more than three times larger than we had originally planned for. It represents a dramatic and successful increase in our production goals to address accelerating demands for Christie projectors," says Ihor Stech, Christie's Vice President of Operations. "More importantly, it is a testament to the ‘can do' spirit of Christie's exceptionally dedicated operations and engineering team. They are to be commended for transforming what was an empty industrial space into a world class, high-tech manufacturing facility in a compressed time frame."

Responsible for global manufacturing, Gerry Remers, President and COO of Christie Digital Systems Canada Inc., notes that, to maintain Christie's commitment to quality, the equipment, assembling techniques, and all manufacturing processes in Shenzhen are exactly the same as those of Christie's North American plant. "In addition, the staff is among the best trained in the world, using the same manufacturing principles and processes that have earned Christie's digital projectors numerous industry awards and the unwavering trust of the exhibition community," he says.

Stech cites the important role played by the facility's new General Manager, Ms. Kening Zhang, who draws upon more than 10 years experience at Christie both in North America and Asia. "Ms. Zhang's strong negotiating, sourcing, manufacturing and engineering expertise are important factors in the facility's continued success. As well, she is able to inspire innovation, continuity and a commitment to quality in this new vibrant team," Stech says.

Shenzhen is one of the country's top industrial centers and a technology hub. The Christie Shenzhen facility is strategically located to benefit from its proximity to Hong Kong, whose ports are among the largest in the world. Projectors can quickly be deployed throughout the Asia Pacific markets, as well as the EMEA regions and around the world.
