ETP recently announced the launch of a new European division and their plan for providing support throughout Europe to offer top-of-the-line AV solutions. “These are the first two companies to join ETP Europe’s portfolio and are perfectly aligned with our existing brands in the U.S and our ongoing global strategy,” states ETP Europe President, Paul Hutton.

“Pixl Evolution and Audio Evolution are young businesses that have attracted a wealth of industry talent and have made an impression on the events market in a short amount of time. They will continue to operate as independent companies and now have access to significant investment opportunities plus ETP’s global technical inventory and support structure,” states Hutton. “This platform will enable the businesses to accelerate their growth and reach a wider audience. It’s an exciting start as we look forward to continued growth of the ETP portfolio of brands in Europe.”

Founded in Orlando, Florida in 2014, ETP was born with the idea of like-minded owners joining together to continue to operate independently and grow their services, while utilizing ETP’s behind the scenes shared-support services such as accounting, marketing, HR, IT and procurement.

Guy Vellacott, founder and commercial director of Pixl Evolution states, “When ETP Europe approached us with the advantages of being part of this group, it was clear to see the amazing opportunity from day one. Having previously worked with Paul and meeting the ETP brand partners in the U.S, we believe this to be a great fit, both culturally and strategically.”

“We have achieved great growth, but with increased investment in both equipment and talented staff, we will become even more attractive to customers in our market sector,” states Lee Spencer, managing director at Pixl Evolution.
