Anton/Bauer To Be Featured on Worlds Greatest!…

Anton/Bauer has been selected to appear on World’s Greatest!…, a 13-part series highlighting some of the world’s most remarkable companies, products, places, and people. Created by Crown Point productions, each half-hour episode of World’s Greatest!… features a fast-paced tour around the world with behind-the-scenes footage and exclusive interviews from selected companies. The episode featuring Anton/Bauer (a brand of The Vitec Group) will premiere on March 2, 2010 on ION Television.

“As we celebrate our 40th anniversary this year, our selection as one of the World’s Greatest!… has given us the chance to look back on Anton/Bauer’s rich history and the company’s role in pioneering the first smart chargers and digital batteries for the broadcast industry,” says Michael Accardi, president, Anton/Bauer. “We are thrilled to have the opportunity to highlight these historical achievements on the program, as well as to share with viewers our continued focus on innovation and the next-generation solutions we engineer for many different markets, including the film and video industries.”

In December 2009, a film crew visited the Anton/Bauer headquarters in Shelton, CT for an inside look at Anton/Bauer’s manufacturing facility. As part of the episode, viewers will get a glimpse into Anton/Bauer’s intensive testing center where cell packs, chargers, and power systems experience a range of comprehensive trials, including extreme environmental conditions. Additionally, the World’s Greatest!… audience will hear from Anton/Bauer staff members, including Accardi, Anton/Bauer Global Customer Support Manager Joe Teodosio, as well as VP of Operations Carl Hultman.

“Anton/Bauer is exactly the type of company that we like to feature on World’s Greatest!…,” says Gordon Freeman, executive producer at Crown Point Productions. “They’re an innovative manufacturer that is coming up on 40 years in business, and they set the standard in portable powering systems for the professional broadcast, video and film industries. They have plenty to offer and a great story to tell.”
