Philips have just released the following statement regarding their Pronto remote control systems:
“In December 2009, Philips announced the intention to relocate some of its existing remote control activities in Leuven, Belgium to Asia. At the same time, the intention was communicated to investigate alternative strategic options for the Pronto business, as this activity no longer fits with the Philips strategy. Following thorough research, no suitable partner was found for the acquisition of these activities. As such, Philips confirms today that it will discontinue the Pronto product line and related activities.”
As well as the Philips Pronto, POWERPLANT also program and install remote control solutions from RTI, Nevo , Logitech and Crestron, and we are confident that we will continue to be able to provide our customers with the very best control solutions for their systems.
