    Design, Build & Production Services

    If you don’t want to do it yourself, we will do it for you. Whether you are organising a concert, conference, club night or fashion show we can work with you right from the initial concept through to the realisation of the event. As well as designing and building the event we can also advise you on Health & Safety matters, licensing issues and supply you with all the experienced manpower required to make your event run smoothly. Take a look at our Production Services area and Gallery for examples of what we are able to supply.

    Safety & Insurance

    Our standards in design, manufacture and installation of event systems are amongst the highest in the industry. Our technicians can advise on what will be required to make your event run safely and efficiently. Health and Safety is always a key issue and is never compromised.

    All our equipment and employees are insured to the industry standard. All our work is also covered by our public liability insurance.

    We are on the “Approved Supplier List” for most councils in the North-West
