SOUTHAMPTON: Is it hard to believe that high tech has been around this long? Crescendo Designs in Southampton is proud to be celebrating its 10th anniversary of bringing high-quality service to Long Island, Manhattan and international customers by continuing to be on the forefront of new home technologies.
Chris Brody, the president of Crescendo Designs, began his career during his college years selling audiovisual products and installing plasma TVs in homes. At the time, home installation of audiovisual systems was in high demand and it wasn’t long before Brody recognized the all-around potential for Crescendo. He enlisted the help of his brother, Mike Brody, and they started working out of Chris’ garage, often starting up the car to generate heat.
Within a few years, the company began to steadily grow and the brothers eventually opened a public showroom on Main Street in Southampton to help gain credibility with clients. Soon enough, even the Main Street showroom didn’t fully represent the rapid advances of time and technology that the company was striving to keep up with. The next step was to develop a state-of-the-art showroom that displays the vision and complexity of Crescendo’s services. The $1.1 million Experience Center is the first of its kind on Long Island. It features full home automation with luxury technologies at every turn. The facility is important because clients can see, here, feel and touch the products. Since its conception 10 years ago, the family-run business has grown immensely and it is looking forward to the next decade of satisfied customers. For more information visit www.crescendodesigns.com.
