Mojo Barriers enjoys festival success
31 May 2011
UK - Mojo Barriers' York based northern office is already enjoying a successful start to the summer festival circuit. The new office which opened in April 2011 has already provided services for Radio 1's Big Weekend and is preparing for new contract win Newcastle's Evolution Festival.
The Mojo Barrier team led by managing director, Jim Gaffney supplied over 300m of aluminium crowd barrier to Radio 1's Big Weekend in Carlisle, to secure all four stages. Gaffney directed a crew of three skilled professionals during the build, which also included half a day ensuring the ground was level for the safe installation of the barrier systems. The Mojo Barriers' equipment was loaded in the Friday before the festival and removed immediately after the event finished.
Following this successful event, Mojo Barriers supplied 107m of stage barrier to last weekend's Evolution Festival. In addition to the standard stage barrier, Mojo Barriers also provided 20m of the newest product to be added to their extensive range, 'sight barrier'. This extra high barrier is used to create a secure and private backstage partition for all three stages at the festival.
Along with festivals, the Northern office is busy supplying venues across the region, starting with a Paulo Nutini gig in the newly refurbished York Barbican on 3 June.
Jim Gaffney comments, "Our new Northern office has had a great start to the busy outdoor season, offering both existing and new clients the same high quality and professional services at a more affordable cost. We hope that the new office will allow us to continue to raise standards of crowd safety across our Northern client base, whilst attracting a number of new clients, from both the event and venue markets."
