Extron Electronics has announced the opening of a new regional sales office in Johannesburg, South Africa to provide convenient access to Extron for customers in Africa. The facility includes a state-of-the-art training room fully equipped to showcase and demonstrate the latest in Extron technologies and solutions. The first Extron Institute will be the School of AV Technologies for System Designers and will take place on 23 to 24January, 2013. The facility also offers meeting space, a demo area, and workspace for an expanding support team.

“Our new office in Johannesburg is another example of our commitment to expand training and make it easier to reach our customers,” says Jerome Gueras, Vice President of Sales, EMEA. “We wanted to give African customers the opportunity to participate in training classes in a local facility where they can learn about the newest technologies and see demonstrations of products and applications. This gives them a level of support that can only come directly from a manufacturer.”

The South Africa office is staffed by Extron S3 Institute experts and features a familiar variety of Extron training choices, including hands-on training using real-world scenarios and courses to pursue various Extron Certifications. Other Extron training facilities are located in China, South Korea, India, England, Germany, France, the Netherlands, Singapore, United Arab Emirates, and Japan.
