Graphco Technologies: Christian Ivanescu

Graphco Technologies Inc., 850 Bear Tavern Road,

Suite 302, Mountain View Office Park, West Trenton 08628. Cristian

Ivanescu, president. Home page:

After three years Christian Ivanescu closed down this location; his

firm sold automated productivity enhancement tools — both hardware

and software — for assembly lines. He has a post office box address in New Hope, a sales office at the World Trade

Center, and has just opened an R&D center in Romania.

U.S. 1 wrote about his artificial intelligence tools on April 24,

1996, and at that time the firm had a $750,000 credit line from UJB

Financial (now Summit Bancorp) and had plans to hire 40 to 50


by the end of the year — many from Ivanescu’s home country of

Romania — and go public.

Ivanescu had founded the firm in 1993 for training and consulting

services and reorganized it in 1995 to reflect its new status as a

provider of hardware and software. His products’ users included


Sitix Silicon, National Semiconductor, Harris Semiconductor, Allied

Signal Aerospace, Thermco Systems, and other semiconductor


in Israel — but, he admitted, some of these clients were working

on a barter basis, trading outdated manufacturing equipment for the

product. Ivanescu sold this equipment in eastern Europe.
