Riedel Communications has expanded its business in Europe, opening an office in Hilversum, Netherlands (just outside Amsterdam). The new facility will cover all sales, rental, and service operations in the Benelux region. The announcement follows another piece of good news for Riedel, having recently been awarded a Sports Emmy Award in the category of "Outstanding New Approaches Sports Event Coverage" for the production of the Red Bull Stratos project. "Over the past few years, we have observed significant growth in the Benelux broadcast and event market," said Wilbert Kooij, general manager of Riedel Benelux. "Therefore, the next logical step was to expand with a dedicated office here in the Netherlands. The office gives us the opportunity to offer very direct rental and sales support, along with even more thorough customer service." Kooij has been responsible for Riedel’s operations in the Dutch market for more than two years. The Benelux team also includes David Bouma, who will be responsible for the entertainment and event markets, as well as Christiaan Haasdijk as rental operations manager. Recent projects in that area involve Dutch broadcast provider Dutchview and Hilversum-based video service provider Parkpost. www.riedel.net
