ADI Global Distribution, wholesale distributor of security, AV and low voltage products, teamed up with Commercial Integrator to honor Texadia Systems as the winner of the 2022 Make a Difference Award. For the second year, this award recognizes and celebrates an integration firm that has made a difference through philanthropic efforts to help those in need within the communities they serve.
Based in Addison, Texas, Texadia Systems is a full-service design/build AV and technology firm that specializes in the consultative design, installation, and support of complex audio, video, lighting, security and low voltage technology solutions.
Texadia assists many nonprofit organizations within their community via multiple charitable efforts including Freedom Day, where they close the office for an entire day to volunteer and service local nonprofits. These efforts also include an AV technology donation and complete installation for a nonprofit organization in need.
Texadia developed a special committee to identify and select a nonprofit that would positively benefit from technology donations. For 2022, they chose the Retina Foundation of Southwest, a research institute that works to prevent vision loss and restore sight. Texadia upgraded their conference room technology to help improve communication across the organization.
“We are both honored and humbled to be recognized for our philanthropic activities by ADI and the AV industry,” says Dawna Payne, executive VP at Texadia Systems. “The team at Texadia Systems enjoys giving back to our community every year, and we are extremely proud of our team. We love what we do and we’re glad we’re able to use our skill set to help those in need.”
Texadia also adds that it has been fortunate enough to have built a relationship with Communities Foundation of Texas (CFT) who continues to connect the firm with various nonprofit organizations every year. The company has close to 100% employee participation. It further states that being a part of Community Foundation of Texas gives each employee access to a portal where they and their families can sign up for volunteer events that have a meaningful impact of the community and family themselves.
“At ADI, we value the importance of giving back in our local communities. It’s why one of our core values, Make A Difference, is focused on the positive impact we make on each other, our customers and communities. And perfectly aligns with the scope of this award,” adds Cynthia Menna, VPGM of Pro AV at ADI. “Texadia’s efforts to help nonprofits in Northern Texas with a technology package is inspiring, and we congratulate them on this award.”
In tandem with the Commercial Integrator’s Integration Awards, the Make a Difference Award is open to all industry integration firms.
Firms were able to nominate themselves or others from outside their company through an online submission form on the Commercial Integrator website. Several nominations were received, and Texadia was selected by the ADI AV leadership based on a set of standard criteria for the award.
