Universal AV Celebrate 25 Years at the Top

Universal AV Services, an Audio Visual Solutions provider celebrates its 25th Birthday in Style, inviting customers, leading suppliers and manufacturers to celebrate with them at an office open day.

Carl Harris started the company in April 1990, not realising quite where he would be 25 years later. The company turns over in excess of £13m per annum, with the supply and installation of audio visual equipment across education, public and private sectors, as well as houses Universal Live, the company’s live events arm.

Carl, Managing Director comments; “When we opened the doors to our small industrial unit 25 years ago, we never thought we would be where we are today. Employing key people and having loyal staff has been critical to us achieving this milestone. I am so pleased to be able to celebrate this achievement with employees, customers and suppliers alike, without all of these we would not be here, and I would just like to say a huge thank you.”

The open day included many leading brand manufacturers including Panasonic, Epson, Casio, Kramer, AMX, Crestron, Extron, Red Solutions, Midwich, Medium and Top Tec Dalen, many of which have worked with Universal AV for a similar length of time.

Key customers across the North and local to Universal AV’s Head Office also attended the event, as well as local media and Chambers, all keen to celebrate with a local company who has clearly stood the test of time, by growing and changing service offering in line with customer expectations and shifts in technology.

Nick Fitzpatrick, Director at Universal AV Services Comments: “while we are submerged in great technology which has developed dramatically over the last 25 years our vision and belief has not. Our success is about people, we encourage the development of our own team many being recognised for 10 years’ service, we receive great support from our suppliers and have great relationships with our loyal customers. We endeavour to treat our customers in the correct way, deliver what we promise and believe they will continue to support our growth. We are proud of our achievement and thank you to everyone who has contributed to our success!”
