Really excited about two recent growth events for our Raven A/V Solutions Division. We became the regional distributors for Gator Boxes (moving-storage cases for high-end electrical equipment) and for ADJ Lighting (mood-effects lighting for special events).Its resulted in us being contracted to help make a Super Bowl advertisement for Gainesville Harley Davidson. So.. you'll see us as part of the Super Bowl Experience.
