To help people work smarter and live better.

Our history

AVI-SPL began as Audio Visual Innovations in Florida in 1979 by selling Kroy lettering machines, a new, efficient way to standardized labeling and display of information for architects, engineers, educators, and others. In 2017 AVI-SPL acquired Sharp’s Audio Visual and expanded our support of the Canadian market. Since our grassroots beginnings, we’ve dynamically evolved into a global company that designs, deploys, manages, and supports digital workplace communications and collaboration technology and services. We work with today’s most renowned companies in more than 100 countries.

Dedication to workplace innovation

Throughout our history, our focus remained innovative workplace solutions that support our customers’ goals and create new brand value for them. AVI-SPL was the very first integrator to receive the AVIXA International APEx provider of excellence certification. As the pace of technology releases accelerate and the scale grows exponentially, so do we. What was once a custom boardroom is now a virtual meeting space powered by cloud conferencing. Count on AVI-SPL to deliver your future digital workplace – today.

Our community

As a global provider of digital workplace services, we believe we have an opportunity and obligation to positively impact the world. We reflect these beliefs in the approach and policies we’ve instituted in the following focus areas:

Protecting our environment

AVI-SPL understands the importance of protecting our natural environment and applies the power of technology to create a more sustainable future. The resources we provide help connect the world through innovative collaboration solutions that transcend boundaries.

Creating a more prosperous future for children

We believe all children should have the same opportunities to succeed now and in the future. This is why AVI-SPL partners with Feeding Children Everywhere and donates to important causes like Stuff the Bus and Cereal for Summer. It’s one way we can help children around the world get the supplies and nourishment they need to reach their full potential.

Diversity and inclusion

AVI-SPL is an equal opportunity employer that embraces people of all races, genders, disabilities, cultures, sexual orientations, among many other amazing differences that make us unique and valued. We recognize the positive impact of cultural diversity in the workplace – from happier teams to improved problem solving.

We’re committed to continuously creating a culture where individuals and our collective organization thrive and grow, where we all celebrate our differences and unique perspectives. Read our Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Pledge here.

Educating the next wave of experts

We are actively working with our industry to build awareness for our industry, generate excitement for our industry among high school and college students, to provide a much-needed influx of new talent to our unique industry. AVI-SPL regularly attends career fairs, offers valuable internships, and offers world-class learning and development to groom our future leaders.

Supporting the communities where we live and work

Our company creates opportunities and encourages employees to volunteer in the communities they live and work. We hold our annual AVI-SPL Gives Back Day every summer, asking each of our worldwide locations and employees to volunteer their time and help their local communities. This includes working at local food banks, serving food at a local shelter, cleaning and maintaining local animal shelters, preserving a local park, and much more.
