Barco Cooperates with Investigation into Videowall Imports

Belgian-based visualization specialist Barco has issued a statement saying it is cooperating in an investigation with Chinese authorities regarding the importation of large videowalls in the period between 1997 and 2009.

Barco says that the enquiry is ongoing with the authorities of the People’s Republic of China regarding the importation of the videowalls. These import transactions were managed via custom-brokers on behalf of local distributors and the investigation relates to the period between 1997 and 2009, prior to the local assembly of such videowalls in China.

Barco says its managing director for China is cooperating fully with the Beijing authorities and remains at their disposal for the needs of the enquiry.

In the interest of the enquiry, Barco says it cannot give any further information.
