Bespoke Stage Automation

Our expertise is underpinned with recognised engineering excellence and is allied to industrial automation where precision and technical rigour are the norm. We develop bespoke theatre controls, stage systems and technologies that meet the business needs of commercial theatre, the dramatic needs of audiences, and the practical needs of stage managers, production managers, technicians and fly staff.

We consult on, design and install: theatre and stage controls, show control systems, hoists, screen controls, lifts, safety curtain controls, wagon systems and more. We develop theatre systems with specific environments, production objectives and budgets in mind – working to deliver practical, workable, and cost-efficient solutions for theatres, performance and entertainment venues large and small.

Practical Solutions

We continually challenge ourselves to develop the best solutions for our clients. As theatre and touring productions become more engaging, complex and dramatic, the controls and systems needed to support them require greater integrity and purpose. Our aims are to:

  • Recognise the developing needs of producers and directors,
  • Recognise the growing expectations of audiences, and
  • Deliver results that are fit-for-purpose – not only to support performances, but to make life better for stage crews too.
