AV award for Saville Audio Visual
11:48am Thursday 25th October 2012 in Business news
AUDIO visual company Saville Audio Visual has won an award for Outstanding Contribution to the AV Industry.
The York business, based in Millfeld Lane, won the award at the 2012 Professional AV Awards ceremony in London, which marked the 40th anniversary of industry publication AV Magazine.
The award was presented on stage to John Sills, Ed Everard, Colin Nixey and retiring PR manager Don Andrew.
Clive Couldwell, editor of the magazine, said: “The pedigree of Saville AV goes back to 1876 – when the original family company ran a pharmacy in York.
“Since then, it has been a serial winner of AV Awards, with the widest spread of regional operations in the UK, and a major player in the rental and systems integration markets.
“Saville’s achievement has been to respond to the many changes in the industry that have taken place over the last quarter of a century.
“That’s partly been done through highly effective and carefully targeted marketing, but it has also been done by listening to users, focusing on their needs, and by exemplary long-term business management.”
Saville was also a finalist in the category for Collaborative Project of The Year, for the telepresence installation in the London boardroom of British American Tobacco.
