AV and ICT integrator BIS expands into France, Germany and UK12 June 2013
Audiovisual & ICT system integrator BIS is expanding by launching in three key European markets: France, Germany and the UK. The company, which has previously focused on the Benelux market, advises on, configures, installs and maintains total integrated solutions for rooms and buildings.
Over the past six years, BIS has furnished 30,000 rooms at thousands of organisations, including corporates from multinationals to SMEs; hospitals; municipalities; educational institutions; and pharmaceutical companies.
BIS was acquired by Mood Media a year ago. Mood is an established presence in the retail, leisure and hospitality industries. ’”BIS’ knowledge, skills and experience, complemented by Mood’s existing network and expertise in France, Germany and the UK will create a comprehensive service, unrivalled by others in the market,” said the company in a statement. The company will continue to be marketed as BIS.
BIS core competencies cover dynamic AV & ICT solutions; video communication; digital signage; total interior design – including furniture, lighting, floors, walls and ceilings; event rental; and digital productions.
Jean Pierre Overbeek, CEO of BIS Group, commented: “We see great opportunities in these three new markets for BIS to support the needs of businesses with innovative audiovisual and IT solutions. We have years of experience consulting and executing projects for organisations in diverse sectors and every year create and maintain thousands of presentation and communication rooms for brands. Through joining forces with Mood, we can now also offer added value in the area of audiovisual room furnishing and other audiovisual solutions, such as video communication, to organisations in other key European countries.”
“Especially in high-quality audiovisual & ICT integration and room furnishing we see great potential to support businesses which need international solutions in Europe. The 800 specialists who work for Mood across Europe enable us, as one of few organisations with such capabilities, to anticipate this trend.”
In April, Mood Media announced that it was exploring a number of alternative strategies to enhance shareholder value, including selling the company.
