An award-winning technology business has announced its move to new office premises in Aberdeen and the appointment of an experienced industry professional.
AV One Solutions, which provides audio-visual services for onshore/offshore installation and event support, has relocated to new office space at the Nevis Business Park in the city’s Bridge of Don area.
The larger building – roughly five times the size of its previous premises – provides room for further expansion and will allow the business to better support its customers with a dedicated workshop and service area, along with a product demonstration suite to highlight different technologies.
With 15 years’ industry experience, the company has appointed DJ Robertson as business development manager to help spearhead growth within the AV sales, installation and event markets across multiple sectors in the central belt.
AV One, which employs seven people, is targeting turnover of £1.1million for its August 2018 year-end – a projected increase of 64% on its previous financial year’s figure of £670,000.
Managing director Graeme McGuire, who has nearly 20 years’ industry experience, commented: “Since our launch, AV One has built an enviable reputation in both the north-east and further afield for technical design and service delivery amongst clients planning relocation, upgrading existing offices or installing AV in meeting rooms and other key areas.
“The team is widely regarded as experts in our field which has resulted in the company winning numerous prestigious contracts, such as our work with the Oil and Gas Technology Centre and Chrysaor, when competing against global AV firms.”
DJ Robertson said: “I am delighted to have joined such a progressive company as AV One and look forward to the challenge of growing the business across new industry sectors and locations. We see tremendous potential for our expertise in the central belt in particular and have already made positive inroads.”
Established in September 2016, AV One Solutions provides a one-stop shop for installation, frontline support, maintenance, and aftersales support as well as technical expertise in events through a fully integrated approach that has helped set it apart in an extremely competitive national market.
In January, AV One was named Start-up Business of the Year, Scotland at the FSB Awards in Edinburgh and represented the country at May’s national finals held in London.
The business has also been shortlisted for the Business Success Under 3 Years honour at the 2018 Elevator Awards, with the ceremony due to take place on Thursday, June 28 at the Mercure Ardoe House Hotel, Aberdeen.
