The new year starts with a new name for us and an additional offer to our customers. PRG UK’s rental brands (PRG Lighting, Essential Lighting & Summit Steel) have all been renamed from 1st January 2011 to Production Resource Group.
All of the customer facing teams and contacts at Production Resource Group remain unchanged and based in the same locations in Birmingham, London, East Molesey and Maidstone. Although broadening our services, we remain set up to deal with small shows & dry hires as well as larger productions, with the same emphasis on level of service and equipment quality.
The reason for this change is to allow us to easily combine our services from different technical disciplines into one offer, if the production or client require. Our name says exactly what we do. We are a Group of specialists who provide technical equipment, services and Resources to four key Production markets: Concert Touring, Theatre, Television / Event & Corporate.
We have industry recognised specialists within our team in the UK, in Lighting, Rigging / Automation & Video. We are also currently adding video equipment stock to our base at East Molesey, London.
This is not a “one stop shop supplier”, where there might be a primary specialisation with the other services tacked on. We uniquely have the team within the UK group to be able to provide combined services, with a respected expert in each field, beside a single point of contact for each project.
We expect this multi discipline service to form a growing portion of our customer demands this year. We are equally still focussed on providing clients with us a single technical discipline if you prefer and expect this to remain a major part of our business.
Our operations in the UK allow us to provide equipment that is packaged and presented specifically for each of our markets. We have a highly skilled operations team to service, prepare and present our equipment as our customers require.
Production Resource Group UK are part of a company that has its roots in the US but now handles in excess of 40% of its business through its European presence. We are able to support projects for our clients across all parts of Europe and the world, from our regional group offices, through their regular UK contact.
Please do contact me or any member of our team if you would like to discuss this further or would like any more information about our team, our services or our equipment.
Kind regards and Happy New Year on behalf of us all at Production Resource Group UK.
