avsnet Celebrates 10th Birthday

Graham Fry

avsnet had a double celebration last week – its tenth birthday and its recent move into new, larger premises, complete with a state of the art Network Operations Centre.

A host of guests – including customers, partners and suppliers – turned out for the celebrations at the Chessington headquarters, including top executives from industry leaders Polycom and Cisco.

Simon Aldous, Channel Director UK and Ireland at Polycom, tweeted: “Great to see the new avsnet facility … exciting opportunity to show more customers the benefits of UC with Polycom Europe” and Richard Roberts, Managing Director, UK Partner and Commercial Sales Organisation at Cisco, tweeted: “Popped in to see our friends at avsnet for their new office … very impressive team and facilities!”

The event began with guests touring the offices and engaging with avsnet consultants who were on hand to discuss industry hot topics. Then came some sparkling entertainment, with a magician baffling the guests with an assortment of tricks.

Graham Fry, managing director of avsnet, said, “This is an exciting chapter for avsnet. Our new office is the culmination of the long-standing support of our customers. We have spent the past six months investing heavily in our operational and technical capabilities to ensure we can continue meeting the IT demands dictated by a rapidly changing business environment. This event gave us the opportunity to thank many people who have been part of our significant growth over the last few years.”
