About Sahara

Sahara AV, now part of the Boxlight Corporation, has been distributing cutting edge AV solutions and software to the education, health, public and corporate sectors through our selected resellers for over 40-years.

As a distributor, Sahara's objectives and overall strategy hinges on bringing the most innovative AV products and technologies to market and always responding to the needs of their resellers and end-users. Having a clear understanding of the market and maintaining a tight ship financially has fuelled Sahara's evolution as a distributor and it's what has kept them at the forefront of their industry.

With exclusive partnerships with several Digital Signage and Interactive Panel brands, Sahara AV offers unique solutions and unrivaled support to its network of AV resellers throughout the UK. The top solutions from the biggest brands in AV can be demonstrated at one of our three Experience Centres, at London, Leeds or Edinburgh.

With the company’s foundations dating back to 1924, Sahara AV is still a family-owned company today. Today, Sahara continues to grow from strength to strength, having moved into brand new 290,047 ft² premises with their logistic partner, Europa Worldwide Group, to accommodate the company's rapid growth and future expansion plans. The facility enabled Sahara AV to boost its current capacity by 50% with the opportunity for further development on the new site.

In 2020, Sahara Presentation Systems Ltd was acquired by Boxlight Corporation, a leading provider of interactive technology solutions for the global education market based in Georgia. With the acquisition came a new board of directors: Michael Pope (President), Mark Starkey (CEO), Patrick Foley (CFO). The acquisition has been a great success, and Sahara’s clients will benefit from Boxlights financial strength and links to AI and robotics.
