AVT Wins Business Development Award

Applied Video Technology (AVT) is honored to be a recepient of the Phoenixville Regional Chamber of Commerce's 2015 Business Development Award.  The award was given to a company that made a significant impact on the regional economy, aesthetically improved the appearance of their business location and showed interest and leadership in civic and community affairs.  AVT met all of these critera with the construction and move to our new building in April of 2014.  The Annual Awards Dinner was held on March 18, 2015 to recognize members of our community who dedicate countless hours to volunteer projects and community improvements. The sold out event, held at Phoenixville Country Club, included a cocktail hour, dinner, a State of the Chamber address, and an awards presentation for the eight recipients. 

In April 2014 Applied Video Technology (AVT) moved their new headquarters to the former C. Wilson & Sons Building in Kimberton, PA.   In what was an abandoned building for many years, AVT’s owners Bruce and Buffy MacLelland, designed and renovated the building to accommodate their 25 person business.  During the renovation, Bruce and Buffy created an impressive mix of new technology with materials and textures from the original building, including the historic and well-known C. Wilson & Sons lettering from the front of the building.   The new building has had a significant impact not only with the improved aesthetic appearance of the building but in the local community as well, bringing employees, vendors and customers into the area that had never before been to Kimberton or Phoenixville.   In addition to the office space at the building, in November 2014 renovations were completed on the Kimberton Conference Center on the first floor of the AVT building.  The Conference Center has already hosted several local community events and has been offered to non-profit organizations throughout the community to host meetings as well as use the space for AVT produced videos to promote their organization and events free of charge.
