Following its successful launch in 2011, Torpedo Factory Group plc is delighted to announce the acquisition of HotAV in April 2011.
HotAV has become a trading division of Torpedo Factory Group plc, and has merged with Gordon AV, the UK’s longest established AV hire & live events company. The combined strength of resources, personnel and knowledge base means that each company will be able to offer an improved and enhanced service all round. HotAV and Torpedo Factory Group both share a commitment to high standards, expert service and support, along with the latest technology from global equipment manufacturers, and this merger brings the combined customer base the very best that the Group has to offer.
The merger means HotAV will have a much wider range of the latest equipment, available at even shorter notice than before from locations in the Thames Valley, Sheffield and Central London. Services include great value by-the-hour and fixed term projector rental, and HotAV will also be able to offer the Group’s webcasting, web development and other streaming services, plus iPad hire and enhanced videoconferencing services.
They will also have direct access to the other Group companies, including the production of corporate films and trailers for events and websites.
HotAV was founded in 2003 by its Managing Director, Dave Savage, who is remaining with the business. Dave created the business after 15 years in the AV industry, including building a successful installation business, Smartcomm.
As a company, HotAV are innovative, creative, cost-aware and service orientated, with many high profile clients in a range of sectors. HotAV is recognised by the AV and events industry as a major player and the company has won a number of awards including AV Rental & Staging Company of the Year.
