AVI-SPL – Why Work For Us?


AVI-SPL’s Story: An Innovative Future

For businesses, universities, hospitals, government facilities and Fortune 100 companies alike, AVI-SPL delivers superior audio-visual connections. Our projects range in size from boardrooms to 6-figure capacity stadiums, and everything in between. We’ve been ranked the Top Systems Integrator by Systems Contractor News since 2008, and were named the 2011 Integrator of the Year by Commercial Integrator magazine, who lauded us for our "commitment to raising industry standards and creating more awareness of certifications."


We’ve come a long way from our small beginnings in 1979, when Audio Visual Innovations founder Martin Schaffel was selling Kroy Lettering Machines. Back then, the lettering machine created effective and efficient communications for architecture and engineering firms. Technology has advanced immensely since then,especially in the past decade, but we've always operated with the future in-mind. Our innovative mindset has led us to partner with major tech giants, giving us first-access to revolutionary products and allowing our technicians to learn from the experts most familiar with the new technology. Our progessive actions assisted us in becoming the first multi-national integrator to earn an APEx Certification, a distinction that recognizes AudioVisual Provider Excellence based on the number of employees holding key industry certifications, including InfoComm’s CTS credential, completion of continuing education classes, and positive customer survey responses.


The future is happening and AVI-SPL's forward-thinking and commitment to providing the necessary tools to our talented team members will ensure we maintain our status as industry leader for years to come. Our evolution from small beginnings to on the leading edge of audiovisual system design, build, integration and support for video conferencing, AV systems, digital media, unified communications and collaboration, intelligent building control and advanced visualization is proof of that.

Our dedication to employee training and professional advancement has provided AVI-SPL the largest collection of certified engineers and technicians of any integrator in the world. We were the first to offer, and still maintain, in-house employee training program approved by InfoComm, now AVIXA, to provide our employees with certified continuing education credits to maintain their CTS certifications.

To help our employees advance personally and professional, AVI-SPL annually hosts educational and team-building events, including:

    Difficult Interview


    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at AVI-SPL (Philadelphia, PA).


    Interview was as described and considerate of my time. Relevant questions with an organic give and take in the time we had. The recruiter was very precise in the information provided which helped to show that this company was organized.
