HOLLYWOOD, MD – (9 December 2019) — The founders of Smartronix Inc. have formed a new engineering firm located within the Smartronix corporate facility in Hollywood. As of December 9, what was previously known as the products engineering business unit of Smartronix became Parraid LLC.
“We are excited to get underway with our new venture, Parraid LLC. Products engineering had always been a foundational element of our portfolio at Smartronix, so establishing Parraid will enable us to concentrate solely on electronics development and production,” said Arshed Javaid, president of Parraid.
“That’s right,” added Alan Parris, Parraid’s executive vice president for engineering. “We always wanted to concentrate more on new product development, but information technology service opportunities were the main drivers of Smartronix’s explosive growth over the years. Parraid represents a return to our roots in electronic systems design and production.”
Smartronix will continue to be led by CEO John Parris, who said, “I’m very bullish about the future of both Smartronix and Parraid. The outlook for these companies is absolutely terrific.”
