The story behind how CAVG started takes place with a few guys who enjoyed running sound and lights for bands and live events. Owners David Thompson and Mike Carroll met at the Marshall University Christian Center in Huntington, WV on a live concert. Many of the relationships and experiences from the live shows are what spring boarded the success of the business. There's something uniquely creative about the live setting that allows for an atmosphere of endless possibilities. After many years of live gigs and even the formation of a disc jockey and equipment rentals company, the love of sound, lighting, and video equipment finally became a full-time adventure.
Throw in some electrical and construction knowledge along the way, and before long, CAVG is known as the "go-to" company for all things involving sound, lighting, and video in the tri-state area and beyond. The staff at CAVG consists of some of the most credentialed and talented people in the business from audio engineers, theatrical/stagecraft, lighting, and video experts with countless years of experience.
Our passion lies in the relationships formed with our customers. As evidenced by our repeat clientele, CAVG views every customer or project as a referral. We value every single customer who has and continues to represent our results.
As fully licensed and insured contractors, CAVG is involved in all A/V disciplines of the construction process. From design, bid, and build, CAVG can be the link between customer, architect, engineer, and builder. We can't count the number of times we've listened to the customers needs, had pre-bid/design meetings, contributed to prints, made suggestions, and had the project turn out absolutely perfect. We acknowledge that not every project goes according to plan or has the budget to meet perfect solutions to critical-path decisions, which is another area that CAVG excels in and can be your advantage in getting things right.
We're a small enough company to still care, but large enough to get the job done effectively. So wether you're buying a microphone, some gaff tape, or a full turn-key A/V system, CAVG strives to put your needs first, no matter the complexity. CAVG employees a full-time office staff to meet the "one-off" or time-sensitive purchase, as well as an experienced sales and design staff.
Our installation crews safely and efficiently meet a very high standard for our installs. Our attention to detail is what our customers have come to expect and can be the advantage on your next project. We look forward to meeting you, and hopefully working with you on any of your audio visual needs.
