Lancashire business Pure AV wins top Industry award

Pure AV, the Preston-based audiovisual integrator, has won the title of Integrator of the Year at the 2018 AV Awards. The prestigious award was handed to the Pure AV team by event host, Romesh Ranganathan, at the annual AV Awards dinner held at the Grosvenor House Hotel, London.

The awards, now in their 20th year, brought together over 1,200 professionals from across the global AV industry to recognise innovation and quality within the dynamic and ever-changing audiovisual marketplace.

Presented annually, the award of Integrator of the Year rewards organisations who demonstrate excellence in their approach and delivery of audiovisual services.

Pure AV is delighted to receive the much sought after title which recognised the organisation’s recent project work, including installations to support cyber security training, simulated healthcare environments and higher education facilities, along with Pure AV’s commitment to deliver the best experience for staff, suppliers and customers.

Peter Sutton, Pure AV managing director said:

“We have an extraordinary team of people at Pure AV who are highly skilled and passionate about delivering an excellent experience for our customers. This award is recognition of the hard work and determination that they demonstrate on a daily basis and I am immensely proud of their achievements. We have come a long way since our foundation in 2003, and as we prepare to celebrate our 15th anniversary are excited by the new opportunities ahead of us”.

The journey to secure the win started with a full entry submission including project examples, testimonials and entry video; the creation of the entry video proving to be a particularly interesting challenge for the camera shy in the group!

The second round took the team to London to face a panel of industry experts for presentation and Q&A. The Q&A session offered the panel the opportunity to dig a little deeper into the key strategies and activities that have made Pure AV the company it is today and that will carry it forward into the future.

The award comes as Pure AV prepares to celebrate the organisation’s 15th Anniversary. This is not the first award for the company, which previously picked up AV News Education Project of the Year in 2016, 2018 and InAVate project wins in 2011 and 2014 for corporate and education installations.
