Cherry Americas, LLC, is a new independent company that has been established to ensure that CHERRY customers continue to receive quick response and service, now and in the future, for any mouse and keyboard need. While the CID business unit has been known for its strong customer service capabilities, the company reorganization will facilitate the ease of doing business with Cherry Americas, LLC, and help the company reach its “simple perfection” aspiration.

This new independence represents huge opportunities for Cherry Americas, LLC, especially in the areas of speed and innovation. “Our corporate culture will rediscover the entrepreneurial spirit of a midsized company, and our staff will become like partners in the business,” states Phillip Kirsch, General Manager of Cherry Americas, LLC.

Cherry Americas, LLC will continue to design and manufacture CHERRY computer input devices, including keyboards, mice and smart card readers.

The company is committed to continuing the values and customer benefits the CHERRY brand embodies. For more than four decades, the CHERRY brand has stood for quality, reliability and durability, and the superior “CHERRY tactile feeling” has been the hallmark of the brand. The CHERRY MX keyswitch is the heart of the CHERRY keyboard, and represents leading global technology and a benchmark for competitors. “Quality and precision are in our technical DNA,” indicates Phillip Kirsch.
