Rockleigh, New Jersey (PressExposure) January 12, 2009 -- The annual SCN Top 50 Systems Integrators list has become a point of reference and barometer for our industry. Especially during a slowing global economy, it provides valuable insight regarding financial growth amid speculation about where the overall industry is headed.
Crestron congratulates the integrators that were recognized by Systems Contractor News as the "Top 50 Systems Integrators of 2008"; we honor and salute their hard work, innovation and dedication. Crestron and Systems Contractor News understand that sales is only one method of measuring success, but in this uncertain economic climate, it is a notable achievement to earn such high revenues.
Crestron is proud to contribute to the success of so many of the honorees. It is no small coincidence that 45 of the top 50 integrators are Crestron dealers. Possibly more significant is the upward trend, with more Crestron dealers in the Top 50 this year than in 2007. As competition for projects increases in the marketplace, Crestron continues to provide its dealers with the best products, training and support in the industry.
The Top 10 Crestron integrators on the list are: 1) AVI-SPL, Tampa, Florida 2) The Whitlock Group, Richmond, Virginia 4) Electrosonic, Burbank, California 5) Southern Business Communications, Norcross, Georgia 6) Roscor Corporation, Mount Prospect, Illinois 7) HB Communications, North Haven, Connecticut 8) Diversified Systems, Kenilworth, New Jersey 9) CCS Presentation Systems, Scottsdale, Arizona 10) IVCI, Hauppauge, New York

The Top 50 systems integrators in North America were rated by projected systems integration revenue for 2008. Cases in which companies were also involved in data installation and rental business, commercial systems installation revenue was separated from overall revenue. As is the case every year, this year's submissions were voluntary. The chart ranks those who were willing to reveal the inner workings of their businesses.
