Abel Opens Midwestern Regional Sales Office in Chicago
Wednesday, 12 August 2009
Abel Cine Tech, a leading supplier of film and HD equipment to the production industry since 1989, has opened a new sales location in the Chicago area.
The office, located at 17 W 662 Butterfield Road in Oakbrook Terrace, Illinois, is focused exclusively on equipment sales and offers the same educational showroom experience found in the company’s New York and Los Angeles locations.
Abel Cine Tech began expanding their Midwestern presence when the company acquired the sales division of Fletcher Chicago in the Spring of 2008. At that time, Fletcher Sales Manager Kari Hess joined Abel to direct their regional sales efforts.
Joining her now in the launch of the Midwest sales office is Gregger Jones, formerly based out of Abel New York, and sales administrator Colleen Nutter.
“We are really excited by this opportunity to have a greater physical presence in the Chicago production community,” said Kari Hess, “and we look forward to serving our local clients with the same level of technical expertise and customer support they expect from Abel”.
“The opening of the Chicago office is another integral step in our mission to provide unparalleled sales support to our clients nationwide,” said Pete Abel, President of Abel Cine Tech. “We’re committed to creating a sales environment in Chicago that reflects the experience our customers have in our New York City and Burbank locations.”
Abel Chicago offers sales of high-end HD camera lines such as Phantom, Panasonic and Sony, as well as Zeiss, Angenieux, Canon and Fujinon optics, compact HD cameras, HDSLR systems, accessories, recording media and expendables.
Abel Cine Tech’s Chicago office is now open for business. The sales team may be reached at 630-359-5778 or toll free at 877-880-4267.
