RICHARDSON, TX—In response to an optimistic outlook for sales of its control systems and audiovisual technology, AMX will continue to make substantial personnel additions during the first quarter and throughout 2010.
AMX began the year by hiring more than 60 highly skilled new employees in key areas such as engineering, sales, marketing, research, and worldwide support. These new additions will provide the resources required for new growth in key vertical markets as well as support the company’s recently announced Bulls- Eye Program, a partnership rewards initiative designed to enhance dealer technical competence with AMX products while providing benefits such as rebates, discounts, and other special opportunities.
Gathering steam from an uptick in sales to end 2009 and an infusion of innovative products, AMX has made strategic investments in areas that are exhibiting especially strong demand for automation and AV technology and services such as government, higher education, and K-12 education.
