N. BILLERICA, MA, November 05, 2019 /24-7PressRelease/ -- DGI Communications, a Massachusetts-based audio-visual, technology and print leader has acquired Connecticut-based audio-visual consulting firm ACT Associates. DGI CEO Mike Walsh remarked, "Our focus on audio visual design, technical innovation, dedicated support and quality execution has led to tremendous national growth over the last five years. Adding the ACT Associates team will not only bring proven consulting expertise to our team, but also a shared passion for innovation, client-focus and on-budget technical solutions. Together we will further our respective positions as sought-after partners for AV and technology solutions, from the boardroom to the classroom to the retail sales floor, across the country."
As part of the transaction, ACT Associates will retain the ACT Associates name and their objective, client-first philosophy. ACT principal Denette Anthony shared, "Joining DGI will enable ACT to take what we've always done, delivering independent designs of unquestionable quality, to a national audience with a supportive partner." Peter Thompson, another ACT Associates Principal stated, "DGI's impressive growth, depth of resources and culture really appealed to us.
