FTT to Open Branch in Belgium
FTT has recently opened its own subsidiary in Belgium
The expansion stage of the Düsseldorf-based cinema outfitter continues. Having set up own branch offices in Poland, Holland, Austria and Hungary, FTT opened its own representation in Belgium and Luxemburg on 1st September 2010. The company FTT Digital Cinema Belux S.A. is a joint venture with the company Professional Cinema Sound of Serge Lambillotte, an industry veteran with long-standing experience in cinema technology.
As far as business development is concerned, one is also relying on the tried and trusted: In this context, Till Cussmann, who already acted as XDC’s Business Development Manager for the German-speaking market between 2006 and 2007, is expected to be the connection between the customers in Belgium and Luxemburg and the German mother company.
Thomas Rüttgers, Chairman of the Board of Management of FTT, said: “Having pooled our forces with XDC at the beginning of the year, this new branch is the corollary to be able to offer customized services in our core segments. Of course, we look forward to working with Serge Lambillotte and also Till Cussmann whom we have known and come to hold in high regard for many years.”
Serge Lambillotte added: “We have already been working with FTT in the field of digital installations for a long time and therefore the time has come to put this co-operation on a new platform.”
On the Dutch market, FTT had already been able to assert its market-leading position in the field of digital cinema for several years and it therefore remains interesting to see whether a similar result can be achieved on the Belgian and Luxemburgish markets.
However, the expansion across Europe is not yet completed for FTT following this success. Further joint ventures, among others in Czech Republic and Romania, will be established shortly.
