Multimedia Exterior

AVI-SPL, a leading global provider of digital enablement solutions,  today announced it has reached an agreement to acquire the assets of Multimedia (Multisistemas BVC,  S.A. de C.V. Mexico), an IT services and audio-visual (AV) technology integration firm headquartered in  Monterrey, Mexico with a second location in Mexico City.  

In 2021, AVI-SPL was incorporated in Mexico. This transaction will accelerate AVI-SPL Mexico’s operational  capacity and provide customers in Mexico and beyond a more robust and reliable portfolio of  collaboration solutions and IT-managed services to achieve successful outcomes in the modern,  connected workplace. 

“Multimedia leads the way for AV and collaboration solutions in Mexico,” said John Zettel, chief  executive officer of AVI-SPL. “We’ve long admired their capabilities and I couldn’t be more pleased to  join forces with a company we believe to be a preeminent provider.” 

Multimedia is the commercial audiovisual (AV) and unified communications (UC) systems integration  and IT services subsidiary of Grupo Multimedia. It brings 34 years of experience serving global and local  brands in Mexico and has earned a reputation for premier technology solutions, delivery, and support. Their Monterrey facility houses a unique proof-of-concept lab to test hybrid meeting room integrations and validate customer system designs before deploying them. 

Federico Bausone, president of Grupo Multimedia adds, “I’m extremely proud of the success our Multimedia team created and the customer loyalty we earned. Having been a partner of AVI-SPL, our  two companies are a great fit in terms of values and culture. This news marks a tremendous new day for  our team.” 

AVI-SPL expects to continue to grow its market share in Mexico while developing greater delivery and  managed service capabilities for Latin America, where many global brands seek a trusted partner for  new hybrid work models and meeting solutions. Over the past few years, the two companies have  worked together to bring complex collaboration technology environments to life for multinational  organizations like Dell, Google, and Walmart.

Once the transaction closes, Multimedia will immediately start operating under the AVI-SPL Mexico  brand, delivering the same level of service they’ve become known for. The strengthened AVI-SPL Mexico presence will support the global brands that are part of the company’s Strategic Accounts Management  program while also responding to increased customer demand for IT and AV services in Mexico and  Latin America. The acquisition provides greater support for local customers while helping create a more  connected world for all customers.
