Led by contracts manager, Gareth Armstrong, the new addition to the UAE’s systems integration market, Delta AV Solutions has opened its doors in Dubai.
An offshoot from rental house Delta Sound, the independent and separate entity was created to focus on installation, offering a full service of design, procurement, installation, testing, commissioning, training and after sales support.
Andy Jackson, MD of Delta AV Solutions and Delta Sound, said: “We were in a situation where we were getting recommended for audio install projects based on our reputation in the live market. I decided to separate this work from Delta Sound so we could look at more of the full integration rather than just the audio. AV solutions will also manage all our manufacturer distribution which includes DiGiCo and L-Acoustics, with more brands to follow.”
Gareth Armstrong explained: “We want to create something that’s special and different and build on existing client relationships as well as new business within the market. The most important characteristic for us is that we provide and deliver a personal approach to delivering solutions – that is how Delta Sound has progressed so well in the past.”
He added: “We now have certified staff on board for video and control. For audio we already have the region’s leading engineering team, which will assist with solutions as and when required during the commissioning phase of projects.”
Based in Yes Business Centre in Al Barsha, Dubai, the new company established the office to create a separation from the rental house. However, there will still be collaboration between the two companies, particularly on the audio side of installation projects where Delta can support clients 24/7 should something not go according to plan with the solution provided. Another advantage from the rental house is the range of stock, enabling short-term replacements to be offered if necessary and demos to be arranged.
