AVI Systems to Acquire CIM Audio Video / CCS Presentation Systems in Indiana

AVI Systems, the largest global audiovisual service provider, today announced it will acquire CIM Audio Visual / CCS Presentation Systems – Indiana, a full-service audiovisual systems provider serving the education and corporate markets. With approximately 35 employees, CCS operates from its headquarters in Columbus, Ind.

“This acquisition immediately expands AVI’s capabilities in the education marketplace,” said Jeff Stoebner, CEO of AVI Systems. “CIM was part of CCS Presentation Systems, the sixth-largest AV systems integrator in the U.S., and has served the K-12 and higher ed markets for decades creating a solid footing on the growing technology needs of educators. When combined, AVI’s global reach and strength in service, coupled with the expertise CIM has developed, will be a winning combination.”

CIM Audio Visual was created by John and Sue Gayman in 1983 with a focus on providing school libraries and media centers with new technologies. As the business grew, CIM became part of CCS Presentation Systems and began to serve corporate industries and emerging markets, including digital curriculum software, one-to-one programs, mobile video conferencing, and Intranets.
