Anna Valley acquires Matrix UK Solutions


Anna Valley, the leading provider of AV rental services and fixed installations to the event, retail, corporate and entertainment sectors has acquired live event specialists, Matrix UK Solutions.  The purchase follows a long professional relationship and will strengthen Anna Valley’s position in the AV rental market with the addition of Matrix’s experienced staff and client base.

Matrix UK Solutions was founded in 1998 and is jointly owned by Project Director, Grant Mitchell, Finance Director, Matt Phillips, and Technical Director, Jamie Gaskins.  With roots in technical project management, the company has developed a reputation for their “can do” attitude in designing and delivering AV for everything from boardroom presentations to festivals.  Noteworthy projects include helping Opus Agency to 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.

“We’ve worked closely with the Matrix team for many years,” said Anna Valley Director, Nick Hart. “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.”

“Anna Valley and Matrix have independently enjoyed great success in the AV rental market,” said Matrix UK Solutions Director, Jamie Gaskins.  “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.”
