Anna Valley, a provider of AV rental services and fixed installations to the event, retail, corporate and entertainment sectors, has acquired Matrix UK Solutions. The acquisition follows a long professional relationship between the two companies.

Matrix UK Solutions was founded in 1998 and with roots in technical management, the company is known for designing and delivering AV for everything from boardroom presentations to festivals. Recent projects include helping the Opus Agency deliver the Salesforce World Tour in Amsterdam, London, Paris and Munich and partnering with the Science Museum to showcase their new Media Gallery, Mathematics Gallery and Wonderlab event spaces.

Nick Hart, director of Anna Valley, commented: “We’ve worked closely with the Matrix team for many years, they have an experienced team and a strong client base that are perfectly aligned with our technical offering. This, along with their extensive technical management experience and touring market knowledge, will grow Anna Valley’s presence in the AV rental market and improve our offering to event agencies.”

Jamie Gaskins, director of Matrix UK Solutions, added: “Anna Valley and Matrix have independently enjoyed great success in the AV rental market. Anna Valley has a large team of AV rental, integration and broadcast experts and an extensive stock of equipment that will now become available to Matrix clients – so we can offer a broader range of solutions and technical support. This purchase will see both companies strengthened as we combine our teams and technology to deliver our clients’ creative vision.”
