Smart AV Announces Acquisition of Insync
Audio visual hire specialist Smart AV has acquired Insync, a technical services company established in 2001, to boost their technical service offering and expertise.
The acquisition will enable Smart AV to offer a broader range of services to production companies, design agencies and stand builders to support them in delivering cutting edge AV solutions at the most prestigious conferences, events and exhibitions worldwide.
Smart AV will continue to strive to maintain its status as industry leader in the LED and video market, but now plans to broaden its focus through the acquisition of Insync, adding significant additional stocks of projection, audio and lighting equipment to its existing inventory, but most importantly the expert technical personnel to accompany it. Further, the Smart AV board have also expanded their existing premises to accommodate this growth and have made available an additional £1.5m to invest in new technology over the next six months.
The acquisition will boost Smart AV’s technical services for conferences, meetings, gala dinners, awards, corporate events and more, alongside the company’s existing bespoke AV delivery and service.
The two companies have already integrated their services, with the Insync team working from the Smart AV head office in Harlow, located 30 minutes from central London. Scott Tompkins has also been appointed Technical Director at Smart AV, to bolster the Smart AV technical team. Scott brings over 24 years of technical service experience to Smart AV, working at conferences, events and exhibitions around the world.
“We are excited to acquire Insync’s services as part of our technical offering at Smart AV” says Darren Poultney, CEO of Smart AV. “Having worked together for many years, I am really looking forward to bringing on board such a talented team to raise the bar even further in our technical delivery to our clients; both existing and new. The integration is an exciting step in supporting our continued investment in people and AV technology”.
“There is already a natural synergy of technical equipment and technical knowhow between our companies and we are excited to support the Smart AV client base as part of this” says Scott Tompkins, Founder of Insync. “I am happy to be part of the Smart AV team, and can’t wait to explore new and exciting projects as a part of this evolving company.”
