dB Broadcast ‘now the UK’s leading systems integrator’

dB Broadcast is now the UK’s leading broadcast systems integrator (SI) following a strong period of growth, according to the company.

As it continues to experience rapid expansion, dB has made new appointments at various levels across the business, boosting its ability to take on major projects and strengthening its claim of being the country’s largest SI in its sector.

The latest round of recruitment has included hiring new project managers and engineers, IT engineers and test personnel, as well as logistics executives – all coming mainly from within the industry and bringing experience from companies such as Discovery and Snell Advanced Media (SAM).

The firm has also increased its contractor complement to almost 50 contract wiring and engineering staff on top of the new permanent hires.

“We are undertaking several large projects currently, including projects that incorporate the latest developments in 4K and IP architecture, and our strong forward order book gives us the confidence to strengthen our team further," said Tom Swan, sales and marketing director of dB Broadcast. “New broadcast standards make it essential to keep up to date with the latest technology developments, and the new engineers bring with them valuable technical expertise gained at leading organisations.”
