Our Company History

History. With roots back to 1991 as a recording studio, CEI reinvented itself as an AV company in 1995. By 1996 CEI was heavily involved in the 1996 Atlanta Olympics and a growing number of national accounts. We became known for our ability to manage multiple high-level projects and simultaneously affordable papers with extremely tight schedules on time and on budget. CEI has grown into a national design-build AV integrator and contractor, servicing thousands of clients nationwide.

Mission Statement. We strive to be a healthy and profitable company having the resources to provide value and excellence to our customers, our employees, and our vendors. We want to be invaluable in our relationships through experience, knowledge, communication, and execution.

CEI’s Philosophy. Very simply, relationships matter. If you surround yourself with great people and always try to do what’s right for the client you can build the type of reputation we’ve developed. Communication and organization is the key to success and detail and follow through are paramount in providing the highest level of customer experience. We are a team and we aim to always exceed expectations and leave everything better than we found it. We strive to be better every day.

Join our CEI team of national service providers. CEI has established a national network of approved contractors to help us manage our growing customer base.
