AVM Joins university purchasing consortiums
Audio Visual Machines (AVM) has been awarded a place on the audio visual supplier list for a number of UK purchasing bodies for higher education.
The company is now part of The Southern Universities Purchasing Consortium (SUPC), the Higher Education Purchasing Consortium Wales (HEPCW), London Universities Purchasing Consortium (LUPC) and Value Wales.
The company says that joining these university consortiums is a natural step for AVM, which is already on the framework agreements for the North East Universities Purchasing Consortium (NEUPC), North West Universities Purchasing Consortium (NWPUC) and the Crescent Purchasing Consortium (CPC).
The university framework agreement encompasses the specialist areas of design and installation with regards to audio visual equipment. It will range from installation of a basic teaching and meeting room, to upgrading of lecture theatres and conference rooms, through to new build projects. AVM will remain on the contract for a minimum of three years.
Edward Cook, CEO at AVM said “We are delighted to be accepted on this framework agreement which will enable us to pass on the expertise, strong manufacturer relationships and preferential pricing structures that we are already offering to our other consortium members.”
AVM joins the likes of GV Multimedia, Matrix Display and Saville AV on the lists of several of these national consortiums.
