SCC has acquired a significant stake in communication and collaboration solutions provider avsnet, which, we are told, underlines SCC’s ongoing intent to be a significant player in the visual communications and collaboration space.
Mike Swain, SCC Services Managing Director, told us “SCC has had an enviable reputation as an IT solutions provider for over 40 years. Now with the accelerated convergence of IT and Visual Communications this acquisition significantly enhances our existing audio-visual capabilities, creating a market leading entity that addresses business requirements for the integration of VC and collaborative solutions with industry leading security, network and cloud services.”
This move will merge SCC’s long-standing audio visual (AV) business with avsnet’s specialisations to form ‘SCC AVS’ which will sit within the SCC group.
Managing Director and Founder of avsnet, Graham Fry, who will continue as Managing Director for the new SCC AVS business, whilst retaining an equity stake in the business, was quoted as saying “This represents a huge opportunity for us and I am proud of my entire team for their ongoing hard work and commitment to the company and our customers. With SCC’s backing we can now enhance our collaborative portfolio and expand the scale of our services to meet the needs of enterprise customers.”
SCC AVS will provide a complete portfolio of services from audio visual design through supply, installation, commissioning and programming as well as video conferencing and collaborative solutions including cloud based and as-a-service models.
