PSA Group Rebrands
USAV Division as EDGE
USAV, A DIVISION OF global
integrator consortium PSA,
has rebranded its USAV division
to EDGE, eff ective immediately. Since 2001, USAV has supported
AV systems integrators by connecting them with industry-leading
manufacturers, distributors and service providers. As
integrators have grown and changed over time, a necessity for
the USAV brand to evolve became evident, PSA says.
" Over the past two years we have made tremendous strides
to grow internationally, " says Patrick Whipkey, vice president of
EDGE. " We conducted interviews with both our U.S. and international
audiences and discovered integrators and the markets
they serve have evolved. From this, we determined it was
time to fi nd a name and look. "
Over six months of development, the EDGE team conducted
research, brainstormed and developed four distinct
brands to consider as fi nal contenders. When PSA acquired
USAV in 2017, it also acquired the brand CI Edge. The inspiration
for the ultimate choice, EDGE, was derived from this.
