AV Connections celebrates 30 years in AV rentals and event lighting

AV Connections thirty years in AV rentals and event lighting

AV Connections national AV rentals and event lighting is thirty this year, our history and culture of excellence prevails. We have been blessed with great customers and business communities. We’ve loved every exciting moment of founding and expanding AV Connections’ AV rentals and event lighting businesses in North and South Carolina.

We were founded in 1984 by Brad and Margie Luckhart in Winston-Salem, North Carolina to serve the hotel conference industry there with AV rentals and presentation services. In growing our business over these thirty years, we have expanded to serve more conference and event markets nationally with branch offices. We’ve added employees who became long term contributors to our success and grew to see our Charleston, SC branch headed up by our son, and now Vice President, Jared Luckhart.

We have continued to serve the AV conference technology rental market by broadening our inventories of AV rentals and event lighting selections in each branch. We continue to increase our market shares through dogged pursuit of excellence and challenging ourselves to provide the next great piece of technology to our clients along with the customer service excellence which is the cornerstone of our business philosophy.

Over the years, we have seen many competitors come and go. Our dedication and constant attention to detail in every area of our business has kept us nimble and prepared. Some tiny part of thirty years as a most successful AV rentals and event lighting company owes to luck, but it is the tiniest part of our business. It is hard work that brought us this far, and we know we can count on it, attention to detail, and reliability to see us ahead for many more generations. An easy road, it never is, a worthwhile one which we love, it has been at every moment.

AV Connections thanks thirty years of dedicated customers for their business and looks forward to each day ahead with same energy of that first day in 1984.
