Revenue: £55.3m (+41%)

Net profit: 0.6%     Staff: 216

Kitting out a major UK bank's new Canary Wharf HQ with Cisco, Crestron, Christie and Sharp NEC Display Solutions collaboration gear is among the case studies trumpeted on the homepage of this global audio-visual integrator. AVI-SPL's UK arm (which also serves mainland Europe) makes its Top VARs debut on the back of 41 per cent in calendar 2019 (its 2020 accounts were impending as we went to press). Globally, Florida-based outfit AVI-SPL boasts $1.3bn revenues and 3,400 staff.

Covid impact

At the time it filed its 2019 accounts (January 2021), AVI-SPL Ltd admitted the pandemic had "highlighted its over-reliance on meeting room technology, which has become largely redundant where clients' staff are working from home". In response, it has furloughed staff, made redundancies and "taken steps to fully align" as a UCC provider.
