Bravas Adds New Location in Austin, Texas

Bravas collectively does $75 million in revenue across all its locations.

Bravas LLC has added Austin as its first new sales location in 2020. Austin is the first location to join the national network since the merger of 15 independent smart-home design-build firms last year to create Bravas LLC.

Bravas is based in Overland Park, Kansas, has locations in 13 states, annual revenues of around $75 million, and a team of more than 290 professionals, including designers, engineers, installers, technicians and programmers that have earned hundreds of industry awards and certifications.

“We are excited to add Austin as our latest location,” says Ryan Anderson, CEO of Bravas. “Texas and Austin in particular, is a fast-growing market and is looking for a high-quality integrator like Bravas. We are excited to bring the Bravas experience to the Austin, San Marcos and San Antonio market.”

“The team in Austin are very happy to be joining the larger Bravas family,” says Joel Marinaccio, general manager of Bravas Austin.

“As part of Bravas we will now have the opportunity to offer our clients a broader array of lifestyle technologies that fit their budget and exceed their expectations. Additionally, we will now have more resources to attract and retain the best talent locally to support those customers.”

Focused on the luxury market, the group completes more than 3,500 residential and commercial projects across the U.S. every year. Bravas locations now spread across Arkansas, California, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Kansas, Maryland, Minnesota, Pennsylvania, Oklahoma, Tennessee and Texas.

The group, which consists of several members of the CE Pro 100, is funded by Presidio Investors, which invested $75 million in a private equity investment to merge the 15 independent smart home design-build firms.

The national network of luxury technology integrators operate as one brand, working across North America with architects, builders, remodelers, interior designers and successful owners of one or more properties, using lighting, shading, climate, entertainment, smart home, voice, wellness, security, surveillance, networking, energy, power, and other technologies, to transform how custom homes and offices are designed, organized and operated.
