Dry Hire Lighting gears up with Clay Paky

The popular Clay Paky Sharpy.

15 June 2012

UK - It's a busy expansion time for new company Dry Hire Lighting, as they announce a significant purchase of Clay Paky products from Clay Paky UK distributor Ambersphere Solutions.

In anticipation of a busy summer for events across the UK and with event planning for the Olympics gathering pace, Dry Hire Lighting is making sure it is well positioned to serve the expected increase in demand for rental equipment.

States Rob Merrilees, director of Dry Hire Lighting, "At last the industry can boast a dedicated UK based 'dry hire' company. We do what it says on the tin . . . offering hire exclusively to rental companies . . . but with the added value of exceptional service and top of the range equipment. It goes without saying that Clay Paky needs to feature heavily in our available stock."

Comments Glyn O'Donoghue, MD of Ambersphere: "The premise upon which Dry Hire Lighting has been established mirrors those of Ambersphere in terms of delivering exceptional products with exceptional service. Ambersphere Solutions is pleased to be a key supplier for Dry Hire Lighting and we look forward to a long and successful relationship."

Continues Merrilees: "The eyes of the world will be focused firmly on the UK this summer, and we need to make sure that our industry plays its part in providing an outstanding showcase . . . and that starts from the point of equipment specification and delivery. Our investment in a significant number of Clay Paky fixtures including the Sharpy, QWO 800, the GlowUp and Alpha Spot HPE 700 demonstrates our commitment to offering our customers the best rental kit available, and at competitive prices."

He concludes: "We intend to develop a close relationship with Ambersphere to ensure our customers have access to the best there is on the market. There is the added benefit of training and product back-up from the Ambersphere team from their London base, and this is something we will encourage our customers to take advantage of."
