Manchester based lighting and rigging specialist dbn is joining forces with full service event technical company Audile, to create the new venture – dbnAudile.
The merged companies will combine experience in lighting, audio, rigging and creative video all under one roof in central Manchester.
dbn’s Stephen Page comments: “We have enjoyed a close working relationship with Audile over many years. And we share the same principals of enthusiasm for our work in an industry that we love, a commitment to development and fair treatment of our people, a creative approach to productions and a goal to provide the very best service and technologies to our clients. This merger will allow us to widen our scope and improve our offer even further.”
Adds Audile’s Rob Leach: “By joining forces and becoming dbnAudile, we will build on our individual strengths and focus on providing an even better and more integrated service to our clients with a full range of premium lighting, audio, rigging and video products, plus great expertise and knowledge across a wide range of market segments.”
There are no planned changes in personnel. The existing Audile team and all their assets will transfer to dbn’s Downing Street premises in central Manchester and the newly merged company’s board of directors will comprise Nick Walton, Pete Robinson and Stephen Page of dbn lighting, along with Rob Leach and Rob Ashworth from Audile. All will continue to be hands-on.
