AVI-SPL, the world’s leading digital enablement solutions provider, announced today that it has signed a letter of intent to acquire Sonics AVI Ltd. (Sonics), an audiovisual (AV) integration firm in Dublin. AVI-SPL says Sonics has earned a stellar reputation for helping the world’s largest brands create new value with modern workplace solutions. The firm works closely with companies of all sectors in Ireland and across Europe to ensure their AV and meeting technology creates impact and operates flawlessly.
The acquisition is expected to close in the next week. AVI-SPL says it sees tremendous growth opportunity with Sonics in its local market and will bolster operations there. AVI-SPL also claims to see the experienced Sonics business significantly strengthening its capabilities in Europe and beyond as AVI-SPL’s global footprint continues to expand in key markets like India.
The expert Sonics team will become an extension of AVI-SPL Limited, based in the United Kingdom. Together, the two operations say the goal is to “create a more connected world for their customers, guiding organizations through technology transformations with industry-leading, digital enablement solutions designed for hybrid work at a global scale.”
“There is a natural fit for our two organizations,” said Michael Kellaway, managing director UK and Ireland, AVI-SPL. “Both companies have led the way in creating customer success with leading-edge AV and unified communications deployments and exceptional day-two services to support them. I’m thrilled to welcome Sonics to our team.”
Steven McKenna, managing director of Sonics adds, “We’ve worked extremely hard in Ireland over the past 16 years to become an established and trusted AV systems integrator known for our engineering pedigree – and that’s something I’m extremely proud of! Having successfully collaborated with AVI-SPL on projects as a partner, we’ve had only positive experiences working together through a common shared focus on delivering great projects. This news is really exciting for the future of the team here in Ireland.”
Sonics was founded in 2005 in Dublin and enjoyed steady growth. Once united, AVI-SPL and Sonics say they have the technology partnerships, with providers like Cisco, Crestron, and Microsoft, and the portfolio of solutions and IT managed services to help customers achieve successful outcomes in the modern, connected workplace.
