Birmingham IT group SCC snapped up this 130-employee audio visual integrator in April for an undisclosed sum. The deal will see York-based Visavvi continue to trade under its own name underneath SCC AVS.
SCC was already one of the few large IT resellers with a bona fide audio-visual business, having acquired avsnet in 2018. Visavvi will "accelerate" its presence in the space.
For its part, Visavvi - or Saville Group as it was previously known - endured a tough pandemic, with 2020 revenues shrinking from £40m to £29m as "many" installation projects were delayed and live events cancelled.

Meanwhile, existing Visavvi customers will benefit from SCC's expertise in voice and collaboration, supporting the shift to the digital workplace," James Rigby, chief executive, SCC (pictured above)
