As publicised on 22 October 2014, two members of the ABTT’s Industry Supporters’ Group have announced an American partnership.
This business collaboration between Silver ISG Member GDS (Global Design Solutions) and Gold ISG Member ETC (Electronic Theatre Controls) will see ETC manufacture the GDS ArcSystem and BluesSystem product lines for distribution exclusively in North and South America.
GDS’ ArcLamp won the ABTT Lighting Product of the Year Award at this year’s ABTT Theatre Show, presented by award-winning actress Lesley Manville to Richard Cuthbert, GDS’ Engineering Director (see picture).
The ArcSystem also received the 2011 ABTT Lighting Product of the Year Award.
“Winning at ABTT Theatre Show assisted our global marketing plan and reinforced the great potential of this product,” explained GDS Managing Director Matthew Lloyd. “We are extremely happy to have ETC handling these products in the American markets. Their ability to manufacture and stock the products locally and provide the level of service needed is a perfect match for GDS.”
