Reed Rigging strengthens XLNT CyberHoist’s North America network 11 april 2012

XLNT Advanced Technologies today announces  a significant addition to its North America XLNT CyberHoist rental network. Chicago based Reed Rigging, the largest show rigging company in the Midwest, has taken delivery of its first rental-ready XLNT CyberHoist motion control system, including two InMotion3D control systems and eight XLNT CyberHoist CH500 half-ton intelligent chain hoist motors.

Michael Reed, President and founder of Reed Rigging, said: “I recognized the potential of XLNT CyberHoist as a unique product on its US tour debut, on Phil Collins’ Last Final Farewell World Tour. As motion control has become an increasingly important tool in creating major productions, I and our Head of Automation, Neil C. Montour, have compared XLNT CyberHoist with other motion control brands and concluded that nothing matches its combination of accuracy, intuitive operation, reliability and quietness. We also appreciate that the XLNT CyberHoist product family is continuing to grow and will be applicable in even more market sectors in future. XLNT’s commitment is unquestionable and we want to grow our motion control business with them.”

Reed Rigging Inc. is uniquely qualified to design, engineer, and install lifting and support equipment overhead. The company’s Equipment Rentals division maintains the largest inventory of stage rigging equipment in the Midwest, backed by the expertise of an ETCP certified production staff. Its Production division provides engineered designs, equipment and staff for every rigging job. Each production staff member is ETCP Certified and has years of industry experience. Reed Rigging also has the engineering and installation expertise to safely install permanent rigging systems in theaters, schools, museums, and houses of worship.

“We are absolutely thrilled to be able to offer this outstanding technology to our clients,” said Reed Rigging CEO Steve Johns. “We have spent the past two years evaluating motion control systems on tour, which gave us a real insight into the real-world requirements of the motion control rental market. But when XLNT demonstrated an XLNT CyberHoist system in our warehouse we were so impressed by its positional accuracy, robustness, quiet operation and simple, flexible programming, that we made an immediate decision to invest in it.”

He added: “With the backup of XLNT Advanced Technologies’ North America offices and the company’s global reach and presence in every continent, we are able to offer this service to tours and events of every size.”

The agreement follows the opening of the first XLNT CyberHoist East Coast office in October 2010, providing sales, training and customer support office for North America based in Manheim, PA. A West Coast support point in Los Angeles will be confirmed shortly.

Marc van der Wel, Commercial Director at XLNT Advanced Technologies in the Netherlands, said: “We are delighted to sign an agreement with a company as well respected as Reed Rigging. Their endorsement and presence in the market will add to our other rental partners in making XLNT CyberHoist the leading motion control brand in North America.”
