Anna Valley announced today that the London-based AV and entertainment technology company will relocate to new premises this month.
The move follows the company’s growth and a significant investment in technology since its management buyout in 2015, prompting the need for increased warehouse and office space.
The new property is only a few miles from their current base but is 150% bigger, providing 41,000 square feet of space.
Remaining in Feltham provides a number of benefits for its staff and clients, the company reports.
Situated just outside of London’s congestion zone, the area provides easy and quick access to the city and outlying areas via a fantastic logistical infrastructure including the nearby Heathrow Airport.
Staying in the same area will also reduce the impact of the move on staff and their commute to work, helping the company retain key talent.
“While our current location served us well for the last five years, we’re now working on bigger projects that demand more space to test, demonstrate and prepare our AV technology,” said Anna Valley director Nick Hart.
“This move will allow us to continue our strategic expansion and improve the service we offer to both rental and integration clients.”
To ensure minimal disruption to their services during the move, a project management team has been assigned to manage the process with the same level of precision that the company employs for their AV work.
Preparation for the move has been underway since early February and, because all new racking, IT infrastructure and office facilities are being built, these will be prepared before the group starts transferring equipment to the new facility on the 15 April 2019.
The shelf layout has been mapped so that the company’s management system will be able to identify where every piece of technology is stored from the moment it enters the new building and the layout has been designed to accommodate technology acquisitions for the next two years with further scope for expansion beyond that time.
Anna Valley will begin operating from their new warehouse on April 29, 2019.
“This move will allow us to deliver AV services and equipment with uncompromisingly high standards,” said Anna Valley’s technical and operations director, Peter Jones. “We’re not just moving premises; we’re implementing new systems and putting an infrastructure in place to provide a level of precision engineering that will elevate everything we do.”
