Background
Our last financial year we can report was the best in our history, with major installations in Saudi Arabia and Kuwait; two major consultancies in the US, and more in the Far East. David and Lynn Willrich started the company over 30 years ago from the AV department of the National Motor Museum at Beaulieu.

Main products and services
DJW offer a way to interpret your story through the use of technology. We can provide Audio Visual consultancy to assist in the planning stage, follow up with AV system design, supply and installation, and provide a bespoke control system to suit your operational needs.

Additional products
DJW can also offer lighting design consultancy, and in-house multi-media computer interactive design.

Where in the world?
Services are undertaken anywhere in the world! We have undertaken projects throughout Europe, the Middle East, Northern and Central America, Indonesia and the Far East.

Plans for 2019
As ever, we will attempt to maintain our high standards and deliver projects to our clients on time and in budget, with our normal friendly and flexible approach.
DJW are currently completing the biggest undertaking in our history, in part of what is purported to be the largest cultural and science project in the world. We have more projects lined up in the Middle East, Ireland and the UK, with consultancies continuing in the US and China.
November 2017 saw our Managing Director, David Willrich, complete his first year of a two-year term as the International President of the Themed Entertainment Association (TEA). This included the orchestration of a TEA SATE conference in all three represented divisional continents; SATE US in LA; SATE Europe in Beaulieu, UK; and SATE Asia in Beijing.

2019 trade shows
DJW will exhibit at the Museums & Heritage Show at Olympia in May, and attend ISE in February, IAAPA Asia in June, EAS in September, and IAAPA US in November.

Who’s who?
David Willrich, Managing Director; Lynn Willrich, Director; Josh Miller, Director.

What the clients say
...is what gives DJW its reputation, as “word of Mouth” is better than any advertising.
One major client with an award winning venue, in which DJW undertook a major installation, is looking to involve us in their major new project, showing words of praise are not always written down, but given in other ways.
Although it is always great to receive words as a recent email from a client reads: “The installation of new projection equipment at the Visitor Centre, this Spring has transformed the projection of our Audio Visual.”
