ENGIE Services builds audiovisual capacity with new acquisition

ENGIE Services has strengthened its presence in the integrated audiovisual solutions market, with the launch of a new division, ENGIE Services AV Technologies. The business incorporates the long-established Melbourne company IBS AV (Aust) Pty Ltd (IBS AV) which traded as Pro AV Solutions – Victoria.

The acquisition of IBS AV broadens ENGIE Services’ existing suite of technical services and enhances its capacity to offer multi-technical solutions to its customers.

ENGIE Services Chief Executive Officer, Corinne Ong, said AV Technologies added a “powerful digital technology capability to our business that complements our existing electrical and communications offer.”

“With this acquisition and through our existing data and electrical business, ENGIE Services has an outstanding combination of expertise in delivering large-scale, complex systems that combine the latest professional AV and IT technologies,” she said.

“This is an established, high-tech and innovative company that has enormous potential to grow under the ENGIE Group.”

AV Techologies Managing Director, Ian Ward, said becoming part of the ENGIE Group was exciting in terms of the opportunities that it opens up for staff, customers and suppliers.
