The AVS Group: A strong group of companies with tradition and experience

At AVS, we believe in the strength and experience of small businesses with a long tradition. The AVS Group has grown from the family business of Peter Berghaus into an international company. All companies of the AVS Group are based on an owner-managed, medium-sized structure. The direct and personal contact to our clients is important to us and just as our service orientation is part of the AVS Group's corporate philosophy.
