We have been involved in most events in the industry for the last 20 years, however where some of our bespoke products end up.......well that is somewhat of an unknown!
We have always been involved with sporting activities and have supplied equipment for a huge range of events. The equipment may be used for opening and closing ceremonies, for TV coverage, timing or official uses, as well as hospitality, the range is almost as infinite as the events are varied.
From football to tennis, cricket to motor racing, our equipment follows many sporting events around the world. Wherever there is a large sporting event, there is a need to power it, and we have been fortunate to be involved in some of the largest events around the world in the last 20 years. Our range has supported the all the below past and furture events:
Working in the theatre industry requires a diverse and extensive understanding of how quick the theatres need to change from one show to the next, and being able to fit to tight deadlines where there is no margin for error. From permanantly installed panels, through to replacement connectors and cables, we are confident that our products meet all these demands.
Below is a list of the recent Theatre Shows we know that we have provided the power for, although there are far more that we simply do not find out about:
Our units are used during every stage of the filming process to power both the lights and effects on set or at location. We also provide equipment to the worldwide film industry having suppliers in Dubai, Russia and the US, so no matter where the filming needs to take place our equipment has been used. Unlike some of the other industries, the film industry can be quite secretive, making it increasingly difficult for us to find out the films in which our equipment is used in the prodution of. However we have been involved with most of the major movies produced in the UK and Ireland over the last 15 years, and globally we have also had a strong presence for the last 10 years.
This industry is constantly evolving and the needs change with it. Below is a selction of the movies we have been invloved in:
We are normally unaware which tour our equipment is used on as the rental companies will send out a various different types of equipment for each tour. However, there are occasions that we have specifically designed products for certain tours.
This industry has changed dramatically since we originally started working with production companies 20 years ago. The demands of bands and attendees of concert/festival for a spectacular or 'never before seen' shows has grown expondentially, and therefore we have developed a range of products specifically to meet these expectations.
Below are just some of the Tours and Festivals that we have worked on in the last couple of years:
As well as specific industries, as listed above, we also provide power that is installed into a building. This offers power for a longer periods of time. Unlike the other industries we are aware of the final destination of these type of products, and we often supply the qualified staff to install the products.

For TV the equipment used is similar to that used in the film industry, particularly with major drama productions. We have designed and manufactured equipment for all of the leading lighting and sound rental corporations, who in turn then supply the equipment to the production companies. We are sometimes unsure of where the equipment is used, but there is certainly some of our products currently being used to power the production of the below listed programmes.
Over the years we have also been involved with the refurbishment and construction of new studios for a number of leading companies.
