Harman International Industries announced the official opening of its new corporate headquarters in Stamford, Conn.

The new headquarters consolidates several executive and corporate functions previously distributed between offices in Washington, D.C., and Los Angeles. Approximately 50 employees will work out of the new headquarters, which occupies one floor in an office tower in downtown Stamford, 45 minutes from New York City.

"Consolidating Harman International's corporate functions into one location offers up a number of productivity improvements, including better collaboration among our divisions and increasing the speed of decision making," said Dinesh Paliwal, chairman and CEO of Harman International, in a statement. "With key operations in several locations around the world, Stamford is a central location to serve our employees and customers in the Americas, Europe, and Asia."

The Stamford headquarters includes a showcase of electronics products representing more than 50 years of the company's history. Items include the company's first high-fidelity receiver (the Harman Kardon Festival D1100), one of the first car radios with automatic station search (the Becker Mexico), and a gold-plated microphone created for Frank Sinatra (the AKG C535). Harman's current generation of products is also on display, including the company's flagship loudspeakers, the JBL Project Everest, next-generation software for automotive infotainment, and an array of digital multimedia products for personal and home use.
