Audio-visual production company AV1 is ending the year on a high note, with a $1 million investment in equipment upgrades, operations and staffing, and a move to larger premises.
The company’s new headquarters will now be situated within a 1,287-square-metre space at 64 Burrows Road, Alexandria in Sydney. It features a dedicated space for set up and rehearsal of live events, training capabilities, studios for content production and remote recordings, increased inventory storage for operational efficiencies, including pre-loading vehicles.
The AV1 team has also welcomed new permanent staff members and an 18-month training programme to level-up existing staff and attract new staff. The new facility also has a dedicated training space to allow rapid up-skilling.
AV1 managing director Keith Wootton said the relocation and investment cements the company’s firm focus on the future of live and hybrid event productions, along with dynamic content and delivering best-in-class solutions for clients.
“Our business is growing; our clients are investing in their live event strategies, and we are poised to continue to deliver exceptional productions for them. We have always been and remain to be all about our customers. They are at the heart of everything we do,” Wootton said.
“2023 will be a landmark year for AV1. We have come a long way in our 18 years of operations and we’re not stopping now. A healthy business, hearty team and happy customers have been key to our success. We believe that as we continue to service our clients and this wonderful events industry, while providing an exceptional employee experience, we will continue to thrive,” said Wootton.
