Ion Solutions, a leading provider of professional audio visual and broadcast technology systems in Ireland, has rebranded and will now be known as CT Ireland, part of the CT Europe & Middle East Group. CT operates 19 offices on three continents and is part of NEP Group, which has 4,000+ employees in 24 countries.
The rebranding follows the acquisition of Ion Solutions last year by Creative Technology Group (CT), the worldwide specialist in audio visual equipment and bespoke staging solutions.
Ion Solutions, now CT Ireland, is led by an extremely experienced local management team and employs 70+ full-time staff in two office locations in Sandyford, Dublin. The business specialises in the creative and technical delivery of indoor and outdoor live events, conferences and exhibitions, as well as the design, supply, installation and integration of audio-visual communications equipment, broadcast television systems, digital video production / computer graphics systems and digital signage solutions. Clients span a variety of sectors including broadcast, retail, healthcare, hospitality and educational facilities, as well as corporate venues.
Ion Solutions had worked with CT for many years on a number of projects in a host of geographical markets long before the company acquisition. Both company’s services complement the other’s and, together under one brand, they will become a 360-degree supplier to the Live Events market in Ireland, the UK, Europe and worldwide.
Today’s rebrand of Ion Solutions to CT Ireland relates to branding only and does not represent any structural or organisational changes. Clients however, will have access to even more robust AV resources, a deeper pool of skilled engineers and technicians, and a range of end-to-end solutions to support live events and broadcast productions in Ireland and on the world stage.
Dave Crump, President and CEO of CT Europe & Middle East, said:
“I’m excited that our clients in Ireland will share the same high-quality experience and superior service for all of their projects, no matter where they are. Our processes and services will be more seamless, from the initial sale to the delivery of solutions at the client’s event site. And, by continuing to support our clients with local teams and equipment in more places, we reduce our impact on the environment.”
“This change is in name only, with the same talented teams at CT Ireland running the business day-to-day,” said John Roche, CEO of CT Ireland. “That said, it’s still an important step in bringing our companies closer together so that we can continue to create innovative technology and amazing solutions for our clients.”
“CT, along with the other companies in the group’s Live Events operating segment, will support our business and provide access to a global pool of state-of-the-art assets and highly trained technical talent in Europe and around the world. Through this support, we will be in a position to provide our clients with additional services, and also work with clients right across the globe.”
