AV Stumpfl, Austrian AV technology manufacturer, has officially announced the establishment of AV Stumpfl ahead of the InfoComm 2018 exhibition in Las Vegas.
The new AV Stumpfl headquarters will be based in Atlanta and will be supported by a nationwide network of distributors, dealers and technology specialists.
This is the first time that family-owned AV Stumpfl has established an official subsidiary in the USA with direct ties to the Austrian parent company.
Industry veteran Todd Liedahl was recently appointed as the managing director of the new US subsidiary, AV Stumpfl.
“The establishment of AV Stumpfl is a new chapter in our company’s history. Liedahl is without a doubt the perfect choice for the role of managing director”, explained Fabian Stumpfl, AV Stumpfl CEO.
“Although our products are already well known in the US market, we feel that there is still a lot of growth potential for both our projection screen and media server systems. The USA as a whole is obviously of major importance as a trendsetter territory. Professionals from all over the world look to the US for the latest technological trends in the AV and entertainment industries. With the new AV Stumpfl presence, we will be able to support our US distribution partners and customers in a more direct and efficient way.”
Liedahl brings over 25 years of experience from the rental and staging market to his new role at AV Stumpfl. His diverse background in sales and operations leadership gives him a unique ability to develop all aspects of the US organisation effectively. Liedahl’s hospitality spirit drives him to provide the best solutions available while also ensuring an outstanding service experience.
“I am absolutely thrilled to be joining AV Stumpfl, a company that strives to make a superior product and succeeds in doing so”, said Liedahl. “I look forward to helping to grow the business in North America as well as introducing exciting new products to the market. The second half of 2018 will be particularly interesting for US customers, due to a number of activities we are currently planning to promote innovative screen and media server products.”
The next stop for the AV Stumpfl team will be this year’s InfoComm show in Las Vegas, where booth visitors will be given a sneak peek at a revolutionary new media server software solution and will also be able to see the T-32 Shift screen system leg in action.
This projection screen ‘leg’ makes it possible for just one person to easily adjust a mobile projection screen’s height, without having to disassemble it first.
