AV Precision was started in 2003 by Jason Oliver.
I have always had a passion for electronics and anything mechanical. From a very young age I would “dismantle” things to find out how they worked and were built. I think this may have started when a Telecom Tech who came to my parents house to “upgrade” the old dial phone to a new and exciting push button one and he gave me the old one…. That got completely pulled apart and I would try and make things out of all the “cool” looking components inside….
Straight out of school I knew I wanted to work with electronics so I when thought the local phone book and rung every single business that had anything to do with electrical or electronics and asked if they had any apprenticeships.
Just when I was starting to give up hope, one of the last companies I contacted asked me to come in and ended up getting what I wanted….an apprenticeship working as a Electronics’ Technician.
It was here that I learnt a broad range of electronic repair and residential/commercial MATV.
Over the next few years my experience expanded to cover Avionics, Custom Car Audio Design/Install, Telecommunications, Sky TV, Custom AV design/install, Lighting Control and Automation.
In 2003 I felt that it was time to “bite the bullet” and do my own thing….. With the support and help from a local retail store, Audio-Visual Precision was born and I started to create my own database of loyal customers, and have never looked back.
From those humble beginnings, we have become Rotorua’s leading Custom AV Company, building long term relationships with some of Rotorua’s top builders and designers, and also adding District Councils, District Health Boards and some of Rotorua’s top tourist attractions to my long list of happy and loyal customers.
The AV industry is constantly moving forward and so have we….we are constantly re-training to keep up with the technologies that we can see coming through the industry.
