Dascom Systems Group expands reach as member of the AVI Systems family of companies.

For Immediate Release

Woodbury, Minn. (January 4, 2018) – Dascom Systems Group announces its acquisition by Eden Prairie, Minnesota-based AVI Systems, one of North America’s largest and fastest-growing communications technology integrators.

Completed in November of 2017, “The acquisition forms a powerful team, adding to AVI’s strengths in AV, UC and Digital Media, and making Dascom an even more formidable player in the IPTV sector,” explains Dan Takkunen, CEO of Dascom.

Dascom will continue operating from its headquarters in the St. Paul, Minnesota suburb of Woodbury, and will retain all employees. “We anticipate a seamless transition, both for the Dascom team and for our customers,” says Takkunen.

One change that observant customers will note: a new descriptor on the company’s updated logo, indicating that Dascom is now “Powered by AVI.”

“It’s an expression of our commitment to extend Dascom’s reach to new customers, and do even more for existing ones,” says Jeff Stoebner, CEO of AVI Systems. “What we bring to Dascom is ‘fuel in tank’ for continued growth and an even better customer service experience going forward.”

Prior to the acquisition, the two Minnesota companies were hardly strangers. “We have been interested in Dascom for many years,” says Stoebner. “They are experts in delivering video over IP that allows network providers all over North America to deliver TV services over those IP networks. AVI will invest in this great company and provide scale for the business to grow with the expanding market.”

Adds Takkunen: “We are excited to join the AVI Systems team and to give our staff the future opportunities found in an employee-owned company. We also see great benefits in combining AVI’s audiovisual depth and resources with our IPTV knowledge and experience.”

The Managing Principals of Dascom will be joining the AVI Systems Leadership Team.
