LONG BEACH, CALIF. — JVC has begun to share
a facility with Kenwood USA.

JVC is moving the western regional office of its
consumer electronics group from Cypress, Calif.,
to Long Beach, Calif., where it will share a facility
with Kenwood USA to reduce overhead and costs,
JVC disclosed.

In addition, JVC Mobile Company of America is
moving from Cypress to the Long Beach facility.

“JVC and Kenwood operations will remain entirely
separate, including all staff and warehousing,”
a spokesman said of the move. “The move
streamlines costs for both companies by allowing
us to share overhead.”

The headquarters for JVC Americas Corp. remains
in Wayne, N.J.

Although JVC and Kenwood car audio offices
are in the same building, their staff and office
space are separate, and JVC and Kenwood have
separate entrances, the spokesman added.
