Magnetic Storm is a technical solutions provider and rental company based in Port Elizabeth, South Africa.
The company that has been running successfully for 33 years servicing a wide range of high quality corporate clients and live events, and is the oldest established and also the largest such operation in the Eastern Cape region.
Magnetic Storm originally invested in Robe moving lights – the 575 series – some years ago, which have proved reliable and solid for many years done dealing with Magnetic Storm’s busy schedule of events.
When the time came to upgrade with the latest technology, they decided to go with LED and purchased four Robe DLS Profiles and four DLX Spots from Robe’s South African distributor, DWR.
LED was chosen because its good value, longer lamp life, lower ongoing maintenance and expedient power consumption made good sense economically and environmentally.
Glenn van Eck, CEO of Magnetic Storm states, “Robe offered by far the best option at the right price” and adds that it is a “Recognized professional industry standard brand” in addition to highlighting the excellent service and support from DWR which is “Always good … and another reason to buy Robe”.
Although making events ‘greener’ has not been at the forefront of the market in the area, he says that they are aware that as a leading company, they do have responsibilities to protect the environment and reduce their impact upon it where possible.
Magnetic Storm’s crew are also very proud to be working for the first company to have this technology in the area, and one of the first events on which the new fixtures were used was the Nelson Mandela Bay Chamber of Commerce Annual Banquet.
Leading UK rental and technical production company Adlib has invested in Robe FORTE moving lights and RoboSpot remote follow spot systems to service their busy ongoing work schedule.
Művészetek Palotája (MÜPA) – Palace of the Arts – enjoys a commanding position on the shores of the Danube in Hungary’s vibrant capital Budapest and is a powerhouse for high quality arts productions. Its prestigious venues include the 1700-capacity Bartok National Concert Hall and the festival theatre which accommodates 450 people.
Busy and vibrant live music venue, Doornroosje, in Nijmegen, the Netherlands, has invested in more Robe moving lights for its two main performance halls, which are action-packed with a full programme – currently staging around double the number of pre-covid shows such is the demand – making up for down time during the pandemic!
The Théâtre du Châtelet, an iconic arts and cultural landmark venue in the 1st arrondissement of Paris, designed by Jean-Antoine-Gabriel Davioud and completed in 1862, re-opened to the public in 2019 after several years of extensive renovation work. The theatre has recently re-opened again post pandemic.
