In 1999, Christie acquired Electrohome Projection Systems, an international manufacturer of commercial projection systems. Electrohome Projection Systems was a division of Electrohome, Inc. Canada’s largest consumer electronics manufacturer based in Ontario, Canada. The marriage of capabilities led to the establishment of Christie’s digital projection operations.
Today, Christie is the only single source provider of high performance digital projectors and visual solutions in North America and one of only a handful in the world. The company has manufacturing facilities in Kitchener, Ontario, Canada and Shenzhen, China.
Christie remains a wholly-owned subsidiary of Ushio, Inc. of Japan. Ushio holds the leading global share in Xenon short-arc lamps for cinema projectors and is publicly traded on the Nikkei-Dow (Tokyo) under the symbol JP:6925.
