I am delighted to announce that today Specialist Computer Centres (SCC) has acquired a significant stake in avsnet, underlining SCC’s ongoing intent to be a significant player in the visual communications and collaboration space. Sitting within the SCC group, this move will merge SCC’s long-standing audio visual (AV) business with avsnet’s specialisations to form ‘SCC AVS’.

avsnet has built a reputation as market-leader in innovative, creative, tailored solutions. Our experienced and knowledgeable team have created long-term partnerships that have delivered real business benefits. Today’s move creates an entity that is unique to any other AV integrator. SCC AVS has the ability to leverage SCC’s broad range of IT capabilities to provide customers with true end to end solutions.

Mike Swain, SCC Services Managing Director, commented: “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.”

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.

This represents a huge opportunity for avsnet 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.

avsnet will continue to deliver business as normal and I will remain as Managing Director for the new SCC AVS business.

SCC’s Chief Executive, James Rigby, said: “I am delighted to welcome everyone at avsnet to the group. SCC AVS is an exciting development in a growing sector and this further expands our capabilities and builds on our continued growth and success.”
