German metering and monitoring specialist RTW has opened a new office in the US as part of its expansion into the American market. Based in Lancaster, Pennsylvania the facility will offer customer service, repairs and final product assembly. Officially known as RTW International Corp, the company's US base is headed by director of sales and operations Christopher Spahr (pictured) and will be a feature of RTW's presence during the NAB Convention. The recent introduction of the CALM Act to combat loudness on US television has raised the profile of metering and monitoring in technical production, something RTW is looking to benefit from. Commenting on the new office, Andreas Tweitmann, chief executive of RTW, said, "Our U.S. customers are very important to us. The goal for the new production facility in Lancaster is to focus our efforts on the US market. Not only does this help us support our growing network of dealers, led by Group One, but ultimately it benefits our end users, as we will be able to provide them with the best services and availability of products possible. With Christopher heading up RTW's U.S. team, we will be able to stay in close contact with all of the dealers in this network, helping them to understand and anticipate current and future needs of the North American market so that we can produce devices specifically for U.S. needs."
