FTT to Open Office in Croatia
The Croatian company AVC and the Austrian-based FTT Digital Cinema GmbH opened a new office in the Croatian capital of Zagreb.
From their head office in Zagreb, FTT DIGITAL CINEMA Ltd., the youngest member of the group, is to service the entire Balkan region. To this end, the company has access to AVC’s extensive network including subsidiaries in Serbia, Slovenia, Macedonia, Bosnia and Herzegovina as well as Kosovo.
Thomas Rüttgers, Managing Director of FTT Digital Cinema GmbH, said: “Having already implemented several projects together, we are delighted to continue our co-operation with AVC in the context of a joint-venture company. In Austria and the Balkans, AVC is well-known in the audio and video technology and has a sound experience in managing complex projects. This is what makes them the right partner for us to advance the digital rollout in this territory.”
Igor Rahelic, Managing Director of the newly established FTT DIGITAL CINEMA Ltd., added: “The merits of FTT as a pioneer in the implementation of digital cinema in Europe are undisputed. The cinema market in Croatia, Serbia and other Balkan countries is on the rise, and together we can provide the exhibitors with a comprehensive expertise in all areas of the latest cinema technology.”
Within their scope of cooperation so far, both companies have equipped several multiplexes in Croatia, including in the cities of Zagreb, Osijek and Split. Further cinemas have been installed e.g. in Belgrade and Kragujevac in Serbia and in Montenegro's capital Podgorica.
