Creative Technology merges Mediatec UK into London operation

Creative Technology Ltd (CT) is pleased to announce that following the acquisition of the company by NEP in January 2017, the UK division of sister company Mediatec will be merged with and rebranded CT from the 1st April 2017.

Mediatec UK has been providing LED screens and associated production services to a small portfolio of prestige clients across the sporting and corporate event sectors since 2003. The merger with CT will allow the team access to a significantly larger pool of technical and operational resources.

The business will continue to operate from its current premises in Sunbury on Thames during the busy summer period, however it is expected to relocate to CT’s Crawley headquarters during the second half of 2017, allowing the combined business to fully realise the opportunities arising from collective resources.


Dave Crump, CEO of CT Group commented: “CT and Mediatec have enjoyed a close, albeit competitive relationship over many years. Several of the current Mediatec UK contracts started life with us and we have always enjoyed similar operating cultures alongside a healthy exchange of personnel and, occasionally, clients. Bringing the businesses together will provide enhanced opportunities for the majority of the staff and allow us to offer their clients a broader range of technology and services”.

Kenneth Patterson, President of Mediatec Solutions in Sweden added “We have a great team in the UK who have done some excellent work, however they have always been somewhat limited by lack of local inventory and the distance/cost of operating from Sweden. Joining forces with our friends, and now colleagues at CT, is the ideal way to take the business forward and to allow the team to develop. I would like to thank the people at Mediatec UK for all of their commitment over the last 15 years and wish them the very best for the future.”
