JVC merging US business lines

Steven Kim

Nary a day goes by without belt-tightening news, and now JVC is finding ways to cinch things up. Fresh off its strong CES rollout that covered the bases with LCD TVs, Blu-ray players, camcorders and HTIBs, JVC Americas is undergoing some restructuring. In all, four JVC companies are being merged in the US -- the JVC Company we're most familiar with that sells consumer A/V gear, JVC Mobile (car products), JVC Professional and JVC Service and Engineering. That's a lot of streamlining, and sadly, we don't expect any resulting "redundancies" will be long for trimming once the official April 1 merge date hits.
