AVI-SPL has announced it will open a new office in Frankfurt, Germany to support enterprise clients in the region.
The AV integrations firm will use the new facilities to design, build and integrate standardised solutions to enhance organisation communication, collaboration, and productivity.
AVI-SPL will now provide German-speaking assistance with its 24-hour help desk and field services, as well as a virtual network operations centre (VNOC) to support its full portfolio of video managed services in Germany.
Spearheading the major advancement is AV industry veteran, and recently appointed general manager Johannes Stehr.
“AVI-SPL is the missing piece of the puzzle customers in Germany are looking for – high quality installation and services from a global perspective,” said Stehr. “I’m excited to bring this immense opportunity to our customers within the country and around the world.
After serving in the German military, Stehr began his professional career with an AV services company as an on-site manager directing installation projects in numerous five-star hotels. Most recently, Stehr dedicated the previous eight years in various management roles with world-renowned tech company, and AVI-SPL preferred partner, Crestron.
“We recognised a desire from our clientele for additional AV and collaboration solutions support in Germany and made the decision to increase our resources there,” said AVI-SPL managing director James Shanks, who oversees all company initiatives throughout Europe, Middle East, and Asia. “Johannes’ experience and knowledge of what our German customer’s need, as well as the impressive team he continues to construct is a tremendous addition to AVI-SPL, and to our enterprise clients throughout the area.”
AVI-SPL has begun its daily operations in Germany, and will officially open the doors to its Frankfurt office on 1 November.
