NEWBURYPORT, MA - Allied Vision Technologies announced the expansion of its North-American operations at the Vision Show in Phoenix from March 31 to April 2. Following the acquisition of Prosilica of Canada in July 2008, the camera manufacturer increased the floor space of its U.S.-subsidiary in Newburyport, MA, and strengthened its sales team with two new representatives.

AVT Inc., Allied Vision Technologies’ U.S.-subsidiary, has assumed responsibilities for sales activities in North America for both AVT FireWire cameras and Prosilica GigE Vision cameras. The headquarters located in Newburyport, MA, has added 30% more space. AVT now occupies all three floors of the building with offices, warehousing and technical support. The additional space is fueled by AVT’s sales and product growth in North America.

As a result of the Prosilica integration, the North American sales organization has been strengthened with two new salespeople to serve customers more efficiently. David Frosini, previously a regional sales manager for Prosilica USA, has joined the AVT Inc. sales team and is in charge of the central region for both AVT and Prosilica cameras. He is based in Rochester, NY. Joe Fabian has been hired to strengthen the team in the western region. Based in Reno, NV, Fabian has more than 20 years of experience in the automation and motion control industry. The new sales team is lead by Michael Troiano, AVT Inc.’s national sales manager, who has oversight for AVT’s sales in North and South America.

“The Vision Show in Phoenix was a great opportunity to demonstrate our new strength in North America on a common booth with Prosilica,” says Michael Cyros, CEO of Allied Vision Technologies Inc. “With our extended FireWire and GigE product lineup, our expanded office and our new sales organization, we are all set to offer American machine vision system developers state-of-the-art technology and even better technical and sales support out of one hand."

Founded in 1989, Allied Vision Technologies GmbH of Germany is a 100% subsidiary of the public Augusta Technologie AG. AVT designs, produces and sells cameras and components for image processing in industrial and life science applications. Allied Vision Technologies holds 100% of Allied Vision Technologies Inc. (Newburyport, MA) and Prosilica Inc. (Vancouver, Canada).
