By | Canada, Freeman Audio Visual Products & Services, News, Permanent Installation, System Design and Integration

Thank you for choosing AVW-TELAV Audio Visual Solutions. Effective February 1, 2012, AVW-TELAV will no longer offer system design and integration services and equipment sales.

To better meet the needs of our customers, we have exchanged the assets of our System Design and Integration business with Sharp’s Audio Visual for the assets of Sharp’s Rentals and Event Staging division.

As our business model is primarily based on the rental, event staging and facility business, and Sharp’s primary business model is focused on system design and integration, we are confident that this exchange will benefit our customers with more comprehensive services, greater innovation, and a customer experience that is second to none.

Special Announcement: AVW-TELAV & Sharp’s Audio Visual Exchange Assets

By | Canada, Freeman Audio Visual Employees, Interesting Articles, News, Permanent Installation, System Design and Integration, Video

Toronto, ON AVW-TELAV Audio Visual Solutions and Sharp’s Audio Visual are pleased to announce that the two companies have recently signed an agreement to exchange the assets of AVW-TELAV’S SDI (System Design & Integration) business and some of the assets of AVW-TELAV’s Videoscope business to Sharp’s Audio Visual; and exchange the assets of Sharp’s Audio Visual Rental and Staging and Videoscope’s Rental and Staging to AVW-TELAV.

“AVW-TELAV’s business model is primarily based on the rental, event staging and facility business,” said AVW-TELAV’s President Johanne Bélanger. “Sharp’s Audio Visual’s primary business model is based on the system integration model,” said Sharp’s President and CEO Jeff Faber.  Both organizations grew successful businesses using these respective models, so it is a sound business decision that the skills in each of the two competencies will strategically ensure customers are properly serviced by AVW-TELAV’s and Sharp’s Audio Visual’s respective areas of strength.”

The entire AVW-TELAV SDI division and Videoscope’s system design & integration, technical support services, production, and recording media business areas will be integrated into Sharp’s Audio Visual.  The entire Sharp’s Rental and Staging division, as well as Videoscope’s Rental and Staging division, will be integrated into AVW-TELAV. “This speaks to the core competencies of each group.  This also means that we will no longer go to market using the Videoscope brand,” said Bélanger.

Both organizations are leading examples of providing excellent customer service and focusing on innovation and creativity. This is the foundation on which the respective organizations were built. “We believe that this asset exchange will create more growth opportunity for each line of business because the business models of each group have business processes and customer delivery goals that are aligned to each of their areas of focus,” said Faber.  And Bélanger added, “These growth opportunities also translate into great opportunities for our employees.”
