We are excited to announce that on December 17, 2018, Heartland Business Systems, LLC (“HBS”) entered into an agreement to acquire the assets of Elite Audio Video Security Corporation (“Elite”), a regional leader in audio visual and surveillance services. The addition of Elite and its service offerings aligns with HBS’s vision of accelerating innovation that enables digital enterprise.
Not only will this acquisition benefit HBS by expanding our existing audio-visual conferencing, security, and digital media system design and installation services; Elite’s customers will benefit from the additional technology services and offerings HBS provides to clients throughout the Midwest. Support, Security, and Collaboration Services are only a few of the many business productivity offerings that may be of interest to our new clients.
Elite, a Milwaukee based company founded in 2008, opened in response to the growing need for audio visual and security systems expertise in Southeastern Wisconsin. Elite has built and maintained a significant market share of A/V and Security Solutions for Bars, Restaurants, Churches and more throughout Wisconsin.
According to Greg Huza, Vice President of Sales at HBS, “For nearly 30 years, HBS has brought a value-add approach to the Midwest market with our high level of customer service and exceptional employee talent. Elite is a perfect fit for HBS aligning with our current operations and growth initiatives. Combined with our expanding portfolio of technology solutions, Elite will enhance our collaboration services and provide clients an even greater experience.”
John Wojciechowski, founder and owner of Elite said, “In looking for ways to expand the business, I saw that becoming a part of a larger entity like HBS would provide a multitude of benefits for our customers, our partners and our employees. Taking best practices from both companies will allow us to mutually build a stronger presence, expanded depth of services, and higher level of customer service.”
The transition is expected to be seamless to current HBS and Elite customers. Previous Elite partners can expect to experience a host of new benefits through the acquisition.
