US tech company Diversified has secured a UK foothold with the acquisition of AV and meeting room specialist Digitavia, the first phase of its EMEA expansion bid.
Diversified Founder and CEO Fred D'Alessandro said: "In today's global economy, overseas expansion is a necessary step in continuing our strategic plan and success.
"Having partnered with the Digitavia team on multiple projects in the past, the decision to combine our companies and bring them into the Diversified family was a natural fit."
The acquisition adds to Diversified's APAC hub in South Korea.
Daryl Clarke, Digitavia co-founder and MD, said: "In working with Diversified we knew the merger would be a perfect marriage of organisational strengths."
Darren Pitt, Digitavia co-founder and Sales & Marketing Director, added: "Combining our services with Diversified's engineering focus and market position will provide opportunities to scale and improve the overall client experience."
