Record sales confirm Saville Group transformation success
Saville Group, one of the UK’s leading specialist audio visual communication companies has reported a 25% increase in sales, with the financials showing an increase from £35million to £43.5 million for 2018.
This significant expansion comes hot on the tail of a major brand transformation in 2018. Following two previous years of record financial performance, this major landmark on the company’s timeline revealed a new look for the parent Saville Group brand, and the creation of two fresh new, highly focussed specialist operating brands, Sparq and Visavvi, leaders in the live event and AV systems sectors respectively.
A key driving force in these impressive growth figures, is the performance of new brand Visavvi, the Group’s audio-visual integration, installation and services operation. Successfully delivering multiple global installation projects for a diverse range of FTSE 100 companies, Visavvi have built an enviable reputation for delivering ingenious, business collaboration solutions on a worldwide scale. Working to continue the expansion of global sales, Visavvi continues to build an international network of specialist technical partners to ensure the consistent delivery of installation projects that meet the company’s demanding standards.
Saville Group joint managing and sales director Andy Dyson enthused: “As many of our clients have evolved into multinational corporations we have had to adapt and change our processes and skillsets to ensure we can support their business communication needs. Our investment in people and technology has, as these accounts show, produced amazing results!”
A buoyant live events sector coupled with the acquisition of key, high profile clients has seen the Group’s dynamic technical event production specialists Sparq show impressive returns. The team have successfully delivered an increasing number of high-end events for major brands, highlighting their expertise in pushing the boundaries, raising expectations and inspiring amazing live experiences. With a core team of in-house technical specialists and significant investment in new technology, Sparq is unique in providing a complete 360 technical production service for events that range from intimate business briefings right through to large-scale arena experiences.
Joint managing and financial Director Colin Nixey commented:” The brand transformation was a challenging decision. It was a big change for us, our suppliers and our clients and involved a lot of internal structure changes. Being able to post these fantastic performance figures confirms it was exactly the right choice for us and is something we can continue to build on.”
