REDMOND, Wash.—Aiphone, an international manufacturer of intercom and entry security products based here, announced the opening of an office in Cherry Hill, N.J., to support its new sales team working in the growing Eastern U.S. market.

“We had seen some tremendous growth in the amount of business that we have in that area, from Virginia up through Maine,” Bruce Czerwinski, Aiphone’s U.S. general sales manager told Security Systems News. “We now have a strategic office in the Northeast that can support not only the customer base there, but the new sales team as well.”

With continual growth expected in the Northeast, Czerwinski said the company recently made a change to its sales force. “We had made the decision to go from using independent manufacturers’ reps to going with a direct sales team in that area, which we started in April,” he said. “Knowing that we were hiring 15 sales people in that area, we decided that the need for the office to support that staff was imperative.”

The new office will also house two tech-support members and one customer service rep, who will assist the new sales team working out of the office.

Founded in 1948, Aiphone is a provider of communication and intercom systems with products that range from simple door-answering units to video entry security systems, microprocessor-based commercial systems and luxury condo/apartment security and communication systems. Aiphone sells to the commercial, correctional, education, government, healthcare and residential markets.
