GDC Technology expands US presence with new east coast office
Sterling, Virginia (June 4, 2010) — GDC Technology (GDC), a world leading digital cinema solution provider, announced today that it has opened a new East Coast office in Sterling Virginia, near Washington DC, to help meet the growing demand for GDC digital cinema servers in America. This strategic location and the addition of Tim Folk, Executive Vice President, whose extensive experience in operations and customer service allow GDC to better serve its North American client-base and set its sights on new regions.
Exhibitors in America have been strong adopters of GDC’s servers particularly where reliability and
performance of digital systems are critical. Key customers in America who are using GDC servers include Cinemas Guzzo, Destinta Theatres, Epic Theatres, Flagship Cinemas, Great Escape Theatres, Harkins Theaters, Movie Tavern, National Amusements, Premiere Cinemas, R/C Theatres, Santikos Theatres, Southern Theatres, Starplex Cinemas and United Entertainment Cinemas only to list a few. “With the increase in digital cinema demand and the rapidly growing US market, more exhibitors are moving to digital to satisfy consumer needs and differentiate themselves from their competitors,” said Dr. Man-Nang CHONG, founder and CEO of GDC Technology. “Our new East Coast office will provide a broader coverage in serving our clients and will allow us to meet the increasing demands of digital cinema.”
“We have seen significant growth in our customer base and GDC has delivered more than 1,000 digital cinema servers to America in the last 12 months,” said Tim Folk, Executive Vice President. “Our customers are expanding their commitment and believe in the performance and reliability that our digital cinema servers are able to deliver. To support their commitments, we are expanding our US resources.” The new Virginia office allows GDC to deliver superior sales and support to our current customers as well as to grow our prospect base in the region.”
“I am also proud to mention our West Coast office in Burbank, California is expanding its technical staff as well,” said Dr. Man-Nang CHONG. GDC’s Burbank office continues to act as its base of operations for service and R&D. The addition of GDC’s Virginia office provides geographical convenience for service, training and sales support for the East Coast exhibitors. Currently, GDC is the only digital cinema server manufacturer that has a presence on both the East and West Coasts of the United States.
“I am tremendously excited for this opportunity,” said Folk. “I look forward to strengthening our presence in North America and focusing on new markets such as Latin America.”
