• Former Steljes company, AV Rental Services, celebrates first anniversary

        • AV Rental Services (AVRS), formerly Steljes Rental, is celebrating its first anniversary since its rebirth. Steljes Rental continued trading for 3 months after the closure of Steljes Ltd, and then commenced trading as AVRS on the 1st October 2016.

          Having begun trading as AVRS, the company moved to new offices in Uxbridge due to the
proximity of its logistics partner and, after some flexibility in working hours and work-from- home options, the whole team committed to increasing their commute by an hour each way and all remain in the business today.

          IT support, HR, Marketing, Accounts Payable, Credit Control amongst others, were challenges that the team faced and took on head first. A year later, AVRS has members of the team gaining various qualifications, including two of the team at level 2 AAT.

          Andy Horn, AVRS MD said, “with the door now open and the ability to look for new revenue lines and contacts, we focused on what we knew we did well. We are now proud to be the preferred demonstration and rental services partner for some of the world’s leading interactive technology manufacturers, a road previously closed to us. Our short-term rental offering for meeting rooms and conferences has grown with the addition of new products helping to add more value for our clients, an area that has always been a strong focus for us.”

          AVRS now supports some various UK AV and IT distributors with its rental services and has been able to develop a worldwide channel for the sale of ex-rental products. This month will also see the company doubling its warehouse space and increasing its headcount to help support new partners.

          Andy added, “in summary, what the team have achieved over the last year is truly phenomenal. From a dark place full of uncertainty and worry they put belief and trust in what I thought we could achieve. Today with new skill sets, abilities to multitask, happiness and lots of tea, which are all so needed with running a small business, we couldn’t be better placed to take our next steps.”
