Broadcast Electronics is centralizing all of its Marti Electronics sales, customer support and engineering in its Quincy, Ill., headquarters effective Nov. 1.
BE purchased the company from George Marti some years ago, and in 2001 it moved the manufacturing operation from Cleburne, Texas, to Quincy. But it had retained a sales office in Ft. Worth.
“The sales office that was created in Ft. Worth consisted of four people,” BE spokeswoman Kim Winking said. “One person has already moved to Quincy and another is scheduled to move the first week of November.”
Marti Sales Manager John Lackness will head sales and support in Quincy. Marti President Jim Godfrey “will pursue other opportunities,” Winking said. His responsibilities will be absorbed into the Quincy operation.
"Linking the Marti sales organization more closely with the design, support and manufacturing organizations will improve our ability to focus on new products and customer response," stated Tim Bealor, vice president of BE's RF Systems Group.
Customers can reach Marti at 217-224-9600 or by fax at 217-224-9607 after Oct. 31.
