STAMFORD, Connecticut – Harman International Industries (NYSE: HAR), the leading provider of branded audio and infotainment electronics for the home, the car, and sound professionals, today announced the official opening of its new corporate headquarters in Stamford, Connecticut.
The new headquarters consolidates a number of executive and corporate functions previously distributed between separate offices in Washington, D.C. and Los Angeles, California. Approximately 50 employees will work out of the new headquarters, which will occupy one floor in an office tower in downtown Stamford, located 45 minutes from New York City.
