Navin from Crest Electronics has sent the following email to customers:
Dear Crest Electronics Customers,
We have made a good product, but have not developed sufficient additional items to allow us to cover our overhead. I have devoted the past 2 ½ years to try to make this venture successful and failed.
We will be closing as of 7-31-16 and I will look for a day job. In the meantime, you can mail any repairs to me at my home at 74 Williams Ave., Jersey City, NJ 07304 and I will do the necessary repairs after my day job. However, I can’t do free warranty repairs, so call me in advance for a quote and send a check with the repair plus return shipping costs. The phone number of my portable will remain the same at 201-565-6069, though it will be better to reach me in the evenings.
It’s been a pleasure to serve you and I look forward to a long time of keeping your equipment in tiptop shape.
Crest is best known for their “Revolution” RC system, which is mostly popular in America.
