The PAX ProAV Group, which includes Messenger Pro, Terracom, Penton, Ateïs and Xavtel, has announced the formation of a "new" group as it consolidates the brands under the PAX ProAV banner.

"Optimising their potential as specific solutions in integrated systems design," the PAX ProAV Group will "position dedicated sales and support teams targeting the brands’ individual market sectors", says a statement from the company. The products will continue to be marketed according to their distinct brands.

Romano M. Cunsolo, Xavtel's director for worldwide marketing and business development (pictured), explains: “This was a strategic move to make it easy for our customers and internal staff alike to focus on the technologies and products in our portfolio needed for each individual project. Our sales and technical people have a wealth of experience in their fields offering support, product training [and] project design, along with relevant sales and marketing tools.”

Arthur Chen, president and CEO, adds: “Our vision is to create inspiring products and invent dedicated technologies for our customers' and markets' demands, and create products that are easy to integrate and use. We are a group of passionate people, working with integrity to develop the right products to help our customers worldwide be able to find the perfect solution for each individual application or project.”
