British broadliner Northamber has completed the acquisition of Audio Visual Material Ltd (AVM). The acquisition is in line with the company’s strategy of focusing on growing its value add distribution business and reinforces its commitment to the UK market. Northamber already has a specialist AV division and the acquisition of AVM will be complementary to the existing offering.
Alexander Philips, Director of Strategy of Northamber, said: “this acquisition further accelerates our existing organic plans to become the Value Add AV distributor of choice. AVM has a strong team, loyal customers and counts a number of specialist AV vendors among its portfolio which only adds more technical credentials around our complete AV offering.”
AVM will continue to be led by AVM Managing Director Mark Nisbet and the entire senior management of AVM will remain with the business following the acquisition. AVM will continue to operate as a separate entity under the Northamber Group.
Mark Nisbet, Managing Director of AVM, added: “AVM’s acquisition by Northamber presents exciting opportunities for AVM, its customers and suppliers. We have an aggressive growth plan, focused on maintaining a specialist approach and providing the highest standard with customer care. Our customers will see the benefits of the increased investment in AVM and our infrastructure, whilst retaining the things they like most about AVM - the team, the specialism and the personal service.”
