Pro Media Audio Video launch EU Division
Building on its distinguished 45-year history, Pro Media Audio Video – a world class technology integrator – recently made significant moves into Europe with the establishment of a new division and office led by integration industry expert and ISCVE member Eddie Thomas MInstSCVE.
Headquartered in Lititz, Pennsylvania, the company has been in operation since 1978 and joined the Clair Global Group of businesses in 2019. It did so with a multidisciplinary approach and an illustrious history in live production and the integration of technologies into world class performance and sports venues.
As a complete systems integrator and technology partner, Pro Media Audio Video utilises experts from the fields of audio, AV, network management, IT comms and infrastructure for a wide range of activities in numerous sectors.
The company comes to Europe with a legacy of construction to production experience in the design, integration, installation and operation of world class AV systems, and is built on a foundation of client focus and technical expertise. This is accomplished through a comprehensive understanding of how to achieve the clients’ vision for an ever-increasing, meaningful fan experience.
In March, Thomas, a seasoned professional, brought decades of experience working in audio systems, network design and electro acoustics to the European office. Over the last few weeks his formidable work ethic has been instrumental in establishing new business.
Thomas’s forte is large format audio systems. He has an enviable CV in stadia and arena projects, allowing him to lead Pro Media Audio Video EU into an exciting new era.
The company has now made its second senior appointment. To augment Thomas’s profound skills, Andy Rigler has joined Pro Media Audio Video EU as Business Development Manager.
With more than 30 years of experience of his own, Rigler’s career has spanned live performance, music composition, sound recording, pro audio system sales and AV integration. His in-depth knowledge of installed sound and audio manufacturing places him in prime position for this next challenge alongside Thomas.
As per its American HQ, Pro Media Audio Video EU has been created to deliver with distinction. With the doors to the European office open for business, the growing team is ready to help realise the technical aspirations of its new client base.
“Following the successful launch of Pro Media Audio Video EU, and with the welcome addition of Andy to the team, we are now developing strategic partnerships and exciting new arena and stadium projects across the EMEA region,” says Thomas.
