Canada’s leading systems integrator is the only Canadian firm to make the 2012 list published annually by North America’s leading systems integration magazine.
MISSISSAUGA, ONTARIO, December 07, 2012 — Underscoring its position as Canada’s leading, and fastest growing, AV and IT systems integration company, Advanced today announced that it has been named one of Systems Contractor News’ Top 50 Systems Integrators for 2012— the only Canadian company to make the prestigious list published annually by North America’s leading systems integration news publication. According to Mark Mulford, President & CEO of Advanced, the firm placed 36th on the list.
“We are tremendously proud to be the only Canadian AV integrator on the list, and it’s an honor to be listed among the best systems integration companies in North America,” said Mulford. “Advanced has designed and installed state-of-the-art AV and IT system solutions in every imaginable commercial environment, from corporate offices, to television studios, to educational facilities. We continue to offer the absolute best in terms of innovative technology and services, and our rate of growth shows that our customers understand and appreciate this dedication to innovation.”
Systems Contractor News annually releases their list of the top 50 systems integrators in the United States and Canada, based on each company’s revenue for commercial AV system design and installation, as well as its total revenue for the current year. To be eligible for Top 50 consideration, a company’s revenue for commercial AV system design and installation must account for over 50 percent of its total revenue.
The announcement of Advanced’s inclusion on the Top 50 list comes after a year that included several high-profile commercial installations for the company. In October, Advanced designed and installed AV and IT solutions in 55 rooms of GE’s new Grid IQ Global Innovation Center in Markham, Ontario. The project included the installation of a 58-foot LPD video wall in the facility’s new Customer Experience Center. This past summer, Advanced helped CTV/Bell Media with the construction of an impressive video wall display for CTV’s Olympic coverage in London. Advanced installed two large Orion video walls that were used to broadcast live event coverage across Canada.
“Our amazing work on several high-profile installations has solidified our position as Canada’s premier AV and IT integration company, and our inclusion on the Top 50 list only serves to underscore that,” added Mulford. “We look forward to exploring more commercial installation opportunities in the coming year so that we can continue to provide top-of-the-line service and expertise to all.”
