Tait acquires Stage Technologies

Tait, the company behind the record breaking London Olympics display that used LED tablets in the audience, has acquired Stage Technologies and Delstar Engineering.

Both companies are established in automation with Tait focusing on the touring market and Stage Technologies on permanent installations for opera houses, theatres and other permanent large-scale installations; alongside automation rental.

Tait hopes the acquisition will give it the ability to offer technology and expertise across the globe from locations on the East and West coasts of America, Belgium, Macau, Hong Kong, the United Kingdom, China and Australia. 

Adam Davis, partner, Tait Group said: “Over the last few years we have seen the advantages of transferring knowledge and working practices from concert touring to other markets, such as corporate and theatre to provide our clients with more efficient and cost effective staging and automation solutions. 

“As the creativity of our clients continues to push the boundaries of technology, the amalgamation of Stage Technologies and Tait will allow our teams to respond to these needs with greater resources and provide better value engineered solutions.” 

Mark Ager, CEO Stage Technologies Group added, “We are very excited to be joining forces with TAIT. Not only will our clients benefit from our increased capacity, but by unifying our engineering, design and R&D teams, we will be able to offer a greater diversity of both hardware and software across the globe.”
