Announcing the AV Connections Brand Merger, Winston-Salem and Charleston

Posted on December 18, 2013

Visual Aids Electronics of North Carolina, Inc. (VAE of NC) a premier national provider of large-scale audiovisual staging and production for conferences, meetings, and events, located in Winston-Salem, is pleased to announce a brand merger with its wholly-owned subsidiary, AV Connections, Inc.of Charleston, South Carolina.

As of January 1, 2014, Visual Aids Electronics of North Carolina, Inc. will now also be known as AV Connections, Inc.

VAE of NC opened in 1985 as a licensee of another national audiovisual concern. In 2002, the experienced owner-management group of VAE of NC opened AV Connections, Inc.of Charleston, also a premier provider of large-scale audiovisual rental and event production, under the same ownership and management. The success of the AV Connections, Inc.brand, started by Brad Luckhart (President and CEO of VAE of NC, now AV Connections, Inc.) and managed by Vice President Jared Luckhart in Charleston, has led to the decision to merge these two strong businesses under one brand name and to end the use of the VAE brand going forward.

The ownership and leadership of AV Connections, Inc. of Winston-Salem is unchanged. Brad Luckhart, in partnership with his wife, CFO Marjorie Luckhart, continues to manage both the North Carolina and South Carolina operations from the AV Connections, Inc. (formerly VAE of NC) corporate headquarters located at 245 Executive Park Boulevard. In the process of this brand merge, we are also pleased to have increased and elevated our management group with Jared Luckhart’s promotion to Vice President.

AV Connections, Inc. continues to maintain a quality-based customer service approach to the national business of audiovisual production. Clients can continue to expect the highest level of professionalism and technical experience available to them in the audiovisual production and rentals fields. AV Connections, Inc.’s trusted teams of technical professionals will continue to provide the best audiovisual event experiences throughout the southeast and across the United States, as they have for twenty-eight years.

AV Connections, Inc. is pleased to announce this brand merger and welcomes all requests for further information at 336-768-5454.

We have been busy this week providing conference meeting audio visual rentals and staging in North Carolina at the Benton Convention Center in downtown Winston-Salem.

FLANC provides leadership, support, and service to those committed to language learning.

Our experience and history:

In 1980, Brad Luckhart began working in the audiovisual world with an audiovisual sales, service, and rental company in Columbus, Ohio. He started off in the rental and shipping and receiving warehouse. In 1983, he accepted the position of Assistant AV Rental Manager with AV Connections, Inc.Corporation at the Hyatt Regency and Convention Center in Columbus, Ohio. Recognizing his passion for the field and his hard working attitude, AV Connections, Inc. Corporation promoted Brad and offered him the title of Branch Manager of Audiovisual Services at the Hyatt Hotel in Winston-Salem, NC in 1983.  Taking a leap of faith, Brad and his wife, Marjorie, packed up their station wagon and two young children and moved to the beautiful Piedmont area of North Carolina.

Seeing the need for a comprehensive audiovisual rental and event production company that not only carries the most up to date, high quality equipment, but also places a priority on superior customer service, Brad and Marjorie bought the branch office from AV Connections, October of 1985, and AV Connections, Inc. was born. Beginning with a closet sized office in the Hyatt Hotel, Brad and Marjorie built the foundation of AV Connections, Inc. with the core principles of honesty, loyalty, and hard work. By remaining true to their core principles, AV Connections, Inc. grew into one of the leading audiovisual companies in the Southeast.

In 2002, AV Connections, Inc. expanded its operations and opened AV Connections in Charleston, South Carolina. AV Connections, Inc.established itself as the preeminent audiovisual rental and event production company in the Lowcountry. Jared has guided AV Connections, Inc. along the path to success using the skills and lessons learned through growing up with the company and following in the footsteps of his parents, and by leading the company into new markets and avenues of expansion.

Today, you will find that the same core principles that Brad and Marjorie built the company upon in the 1980’s are still in practice at AV Connections, Inc. . This  is apparent in the way we respect our clients, how we treat our employees, and through the friendly and welcoming environment we promote in the office and on  job sites.
