SSE Audio Group has successfully purchased the installation operations of audio specialists Green-i. This acquisition follows the recent procurement of Green-iís hire inventory.
Both additional activities will be amalgamated into SSE London – SSE’s audio installations and contract hire division based in Hayes, West London.
Green-i Director Ian Woodall (Woody) will initially work alongside SSE London’s Operations Director Emma Barwell, to ensure that existing contracts and relationships are supported and fully maintained.
“I’m delighted with this deal because it means our existing clients will benefit greatly from the strength of SSE Audio Group and the wide range of audio services they offer" says Ian Woodall and he added:
"It also means in future I can take a less hands-on role, in the knowledge that all our clients are being looked after and the relationships we have built up over many years can be properly maintained.”
SSE’s Emma Barwell added: “I am looking forward to working with Woody and getting to know his clients as this business is all about relationships. Green-i’s portfolio will really complement our existing client base.”
Green-i was formerly associated with Canegreen – the audio rental company that joined SSE last year and who have just moved into new premises in Hayes alongside SSE London.
SSE London provides a full audio installations service to venues across the country, including bars, restaurants, clubs and theatres. These are carried out either as complete turn key projects or on a contract rental basis with service agreements.
SSE Audio Group Managing Director John Penn says
“Last month we agreed to purchase Green-i’s complete hire stock, enabling us to secure our position in the London Events marketplace, with Andrew Frengley able to provide us with his extensive experience. Now we are delighted to purchase the complementary elements of Green-i as they fit perfectly with SSE London’s existing operations.
We already have a team of audio installation and service engineers operating out of Hayes, so we will work closely with Woody to make sure there is a seamless transition for Green-I’s clients.”
