Steve Staples MD of Astec AV 


Astec was originally set up in 1992 by Steve Staples as primarily a TV systems installation Company. Steve with his qualifications from the Electronics Industry was well placed to enter a fast changing technological sector within home entertainment and had also worked within the TV systems industry prior to starting Astec including working with Satellite TV systems long before Sky TV was launched.

In 1994 Astec became a Member of the CAI (Confederation of Aerial Industries) which is the government recognised Trade body for the Aerial & Satellite Industry. Steve and Astec have since won numerous CAI Trade & Installation based awards and Steve has previously sat on the Board of the CAI as a Director as well as many of the CAI working committees.



Astec was proud to be the first 'Company' in the UK to achieve Registered Digital Installer "Company" status in preparation for the Digital Switchover in 2011.
