TORRANCE, Calif., August 31, 2011 – Alpine Electronics Research of America, Inc. has announced plans to open a new research center.

Alpine Electronics Research of America, an affiliate of automotive electronics manufacturer Alpine Electronics, Inc., is based in Torrance, Calif. The Torrance location focuses on automotive electronics research and development. The new center will serve as a branch office for the company and is scheduled to open in October of this year.
“Our new San Jose research center will play a key role in growing our in-vehicle cloud business and smartphone linking services, so being located in such an innovative region is an asset,” said Hidenori Hidaka, President, Alpine Electronics Research of America. “This office will allow us to work even more closely with our development partners to create new solutions that can be applied to our OEM and aftermarket products.”
