CME congratulates Christie Digital on new partnership with Rockwell Collins

Published by Brad Fougere on January 27, 2016

Christie Digital Systems, one of Canada’s leading high tech manufacturers, has announced that will sell its Matrix projector line to U.S.-based Rockwell Collins, giving it access to that company’s extensive network of government and commercial customers for aviation simulation and training systems.  Christie will continue to manufacture the projectors in its Kitchener facility, with system engineering, integration and support provided by Rockwell Collins.  The agreement pertains to four Christie products and two patents, and gives Rockwell Collins the right to use Christie software.

“This is great news for Christie, and for Canadian manufacturing,” says CME President & CEO Jayson Myers. “More international sales will boost manufacturing and Christie’s growth prospects.  Above all, it is recognition of the world-class engineering, technology development, manufacturing and services capabilities that companies like Christie have right here in Canada."

“Rockwell Collins insisted that the projectors continue to be engineered and manufactured at the Kitchener facility,” according to Gerry Remers, President and General Manager at Christie.  “They came in and did an assessment of manufacturing and the supply chain.  We ranked very, very highly."

The deal is expected to close by the end of March.
