Cirrus Systems, Inc, a startup electronics manufacturer of outdoor LED video screens, has relocated to from Saco, Maine, to Portsmouth, leasing a 32,000-square-foot space on West Road. The company expects to employ 50 people there within the next year.
“We source electronic components and assemble them into large high-resolution outdoor screens used by business owners to promote their message,” said S. David Rycyna III, Cirrus CEO. “I chose Portsmouth, New Hampshire because it attracts young talent... I love New Hampshire’s business-friendly live free attitude.”
Rycyna says his products allow companies with brick and mortar locations to use LED screens to display sophisticated websites as well as real-time analytics on customer behavior ranging from the movement of cars to in-store foot traffic and demographics.
“Technology companies like David’s are gravitating to smaller cities that offer a nearby ocean, mountains, lakes, universities, and hip fun things to do—and Portsmouth fits this profile,” said Michael Bergeron, senior business development manager with the NH Department of Business and Economic Affairs, who assisted with the relocation.
The firm plans to hire manufacturing technicians, software developers, and customer support representatives. For more information, visit cirrusled.com
