Metro Productions forms partnership with Advanced Visual Production (AVP)
RICHMOND, Va., April 19, 2016 - Metro Productions has established a strategic partnership with Advanced Visual Production (AVP), a local sound, lighting, video and staging company, to better serve current and future customers.
"We are honored to gain such an impressive ally and business associate," Rich Diller, Metro's director of operations, said. "Partnering with AVP gives Metro the ability to provide clients with state-of-the art live-event production coverage as well as offer a wider range of services."
For years, Metro has worked closely with AVP on a variety of projects, and with both companies' core capabilities evolving in an ever-changing marketplace, the decision to transition to the next level was an easy one. Metro and AVP share the same values and goals, making this collaboration the perfect fit.
"O ur work with Metro has been very rewarding," E. Lee Dickinson, president of AVP, stated. "The world of live-event production is high demand and high pressure, so it's a pleasure to work with a dependable partner that shares our commitment to quality and professionalism."
The partnership with AVP will allow both organizations to build stronger teams and provide clients with the best possible value. Specifically, Metro will now offer more live-event coverage, something current customers have been interested in for some time.
"It's exciting to offer a more robust collection of services to both sets of our customers," Dickinson said. "I can imagine all kinds of ways our individual staffs, equipment packages, skills and capabilities can be combined to provide full-service solutions. These days, so many studio projects have a live component, and virtually all events have pre- and post-production needs. Working together to expand both companies' offerings just makes sense!"
