Ford Audio-Video Systems, LLC (Ford), a national AV integrator that specializes in enterprise level audio visual systems integration and collaboration solutions, announced today the acquisition of Audio Video Resources (AVR) based in Phoenix, AZ. The acquisition will enhance Ford’s service capabilities in Phoenix as well as its ability to provide award-winning design and technical installation throughout the western United States.
For over 60 years, Audio Video Resources has provided communication solutions that have brought real impact to their clients. The company employs more than 40 employees, providing its clients with services ranging from design and engineering consultation to installation and training as well as ongoing technical support and rentals. Professionalism and personalized attention has attracted major enterprises such as Arizona State University, the Cable Shopping Network, Fender Instruments, University of Arizona, and Aetna Insurance. AVR is an InfoComm Solutions Provider and boasts the highest number of industry certified designers and technicians of any audiovisual company in Arizona. Ford is excited to incorporate AVR’s capabilities and experience into its national operation.
Ford first stepped into the Arizona market with the establishment of its Phoenix division and while the local office has seen steady growth and success, the acquisition of such a well-known and trusted AV integrator like AVR, will increase Ford’s impact in the West. “It is our hope that this will provide expanded services to existing AVR customers and accelerate growth in the expanding Phoenix market” says Jim Ford, PE & President of Ford Audio-Video.
