BlueWater Technologies' Grand Rapids, Michigan Office Reports Strong Growth in 2011

Adds New Sales and Operations Manager and Increases Staff to Support Growth

SOUTHFIELD, MI--(Marketwire - Jul 28, 2011) - BlueWater Technologies, a national provider of In Store Solutions & Technology Driven Displays, Audio Visual Integration, and Meeting & Event Technology, reports strong revenue and employee growth at its Grand Rapids, Michigan office.

As of June 2011, the Grand Rapids office revenue equated to approximately 70 percent of its total revenue in 2010 with current bookings and forecasts that will quickly exceed last year's earnings. Increasing the staff, and providing more jobs to the area, has been necessary to accommodate this growth.

In January, BlueWater hired Sales & Operations Manager Tobi Tungl, covering both western Michigan and Indiana. Bringing ten-plus years of industry experience, Tungl has a thorough understanding of what customers expect and how to get the desired results. In this role, he is responsible for managing all aspects of sales and operations activities to ensure revenue goals are met; operational and project management procedures are first-rate and followed; and, customers consistently receive the highest level of service.

The team expansion has been in both services and sales, and together they bring more than 50 years combined industry experience to BlueWater. "This is the team that is getting the job done in Grand Rapids," said BlueWater Technologies' CEO Tom Battaglia. "As this office continues its climbing revenue growth, we will continue to hire the best in the industry to service our customers and continue to expand our clientele. This is an exciting year for BlueWater."

There are several projects this year that attributed to the Grand Rapid's office expansion, including several new higher education projects. A renowned Indiana University, ranked in the top 25 in the "U.S. News & World Report" survey of America's best colleges, is taking its new School of Business digital with a complete Crestron solution. And, Davenport University continues to digitize its classrooms with the latest technology solutions in 2011. Other projects include digital signage, mobile marketing tours, and AV integration and structured cabling solutions for new BlueWater customers.

To ensure the team has the support, tools, and the necessary working conditions to get the job done, BlueWater Grand Rapids recently expanded its office and warehouse by tripling the square footage and preparing for its continued growth.

"I'm thrilled to be a part of a growing company and doing my part to make a positive impact to the team here in Grand Rapids as well as the corporate goals," said Tungl. "We wouldn't have the results we do today without this team."
