Crestron Electronics: A Made-In-America Success Story
In a quiet corner of Crestron Electronics’ cavernous Rockleigh, N.J. research lab, an aged engineer hunches over a chaotic assembly of plastic tubes, spinning motors and wire. He flips a switch and an exhaust pipe spews a plume of white mist. “This is my Rube Goldberg machine,” says George Feldstein, with an impish grin. “I always have to keep my hands busy. Not bad for a CEO, huh?”
At 70 the founder of Crestron Electronics-maker of myriad home automation devices-is as fit and energetic as a man half his age.
