AVI-SPL continues to build on its long-standing position as the industry’s benchmark, this time partnering with a company many consider “the AVI-SPL of Asia.”

Tampa, Fla.-based AVI-SPL formalized a partnership with Vega, which is among the worldwide leaders in building and installing AV and IT solutions around the world.

Vega has offices in China, Macau, Korea, Japan, Taiwan, Singapore, Malaysia, Philippines, India, Vietnam, Australia, the U.K. and the U.S. The new partnership serves as an extension of AVI-SPL’s Global Accounts Management Program that was announced earlier this year.

It also continues AVI-SPL’s global expansion that includes opening an office in Germany last year.

“The inclusion of Vega’s widespread talent and resources in Asia will greatly enhance AVI-SPL’s high-end, high-touch global delivery model,” according to the joint press release announcing the partnership.

Under the terms of the agreement, Vega will be the primary source for supporting AVI-SPL’s multi-national customers through Asia, including India. AVI-SPL “will continue to oversee the project lifecycle from design to deployment, management and support, working hand-in-hand with Vega, rather than handing off, projects within the region to contracted resources,” according to the announcement.

AVI-SPL will provide managed services through its Unify ME Symphony platform for projects involved in the partnership.

Vega was among the early members of the InfoComm APEx (AV Provider of Excellence) program, which celebrates companies that achieve certain levels of training, certifications and more.

“Our clients signed on to work with us, so it was important to AVI-SPL to find a like-minded partner that our clients can trust and who can provide the same level of consistency, reliability, and scalability they’ve come to expect,” said AVI-SPL CEO John Zettel in the announcement. “Vega’s history of success and extraordinary presence in Asia makes them the ideal partner for AVI-SPL, and we look forward to working very closely with their team to ensure the partnership’s success and our customer’s satisfaction within the region.”

Vega global business development director Matthew Deayton is excited about the partnership too.

“We have been collaborating with AVI-SPL on successfully deploying systems for multi-national clients for several years and this formalization of our strategic partnership solidifies the commitment and cooperation between our companies,” he said in the joint statement. “We’re excitedly looking forward to the opportunities that are going to be opened.”

Vega will join Connected Vision Group of Australia as AVI-SPL continues to expand its presence worldwide through strategic alliances. Prior to the formal partnership, the trio had already worked together for some time. In recent years, the global partners have joined forces to support multi-nation projects for customers in North America, Europe, Asia and Australia.
