JR Clancy & Stage Technologies in Alliance
29 November 2001
The collaboration between the US theatrical equipment consultant, JR Clancy, and UK manufacturer of stage automation systems, Stage Technologies, has moved on another step with the signing of a formal agreement between the two companies. This agreement, which covers land-based stage engineering installations in North America, was signed at the LDI 2001 exhibition in Orlando earlier this month, and cements a relationship that has been strengthening over a number of years.
The companies first worked together in 1995 providing a complete 95-axis power flying system for the Teatre Nacional in Barcelona, Spain. More recently, JR Clancy provided the Conference Center of The Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter Day Saints in Salt Lake City with a complete automated rigging system complete including a 45-axis Nomad control system from Stage Technologies.
Tom Young, vice-president of sales and marketing of JR Clancy, explained: "This agreement formalizes the working relationship we have had for many years, combining Stage Technologies' line of internationally-respected control products with Clancy's established motorized rigging equipment. Together we offer a complete range of sophisticated, reliable motorized rigging and control for systems of all sizes."
With project references outside the USA such as the 240-axis, 10-console system at the Royal Opera House in London, Stage Technologies' expertise is now internationally recognized. Sales and marketing director for the company John Hastie added: "Our work to date with JR Clancy has included most recently on land a 12-axis Juggler console system in the Center for Performing Arts at Rhinebeck, New York, as well as numerous recent installations on board major cruise ship venues. Each company bring its unique skills to our joint projects which, when combined, offer our clients an unbeatable solution."
