Growth case

Kinly was built in 2017 by combining two companies with complementary services and geographies. The merger united VisionsConnected, a Dutch cloud-based high-end videoconferencing software platform, and Viju, a Norwegian audiovisual system integrator with a global delivery footprint. This strategic merger effectively established Kinly as a leading global specialist in audiovisual collaboration solutions. Our vision for Kinly was to further strengthen its position as global and innovative market leader through a combination of organic growth initiatives and strategic acquisitions. As part of this strategy, we acquired MK2 in 2018 and AVMI in 2020, bolstering our presence in the Netherlands and the UK, respectively.
