BERGAMO, ITALY-- Clay Paky has signed Production Resource Group, LLC (PRG) as the exclusive distributor of Clay Paky moving lights in the US and English-speaking Canada.
"We are very excited about our new association," says Francesco Romagnoli, manager of North America and Latin America for Clay Paky. "We are confident that PRG will give Clay Paky the exposure it deserves in this important marketplace. PRG recognized the high profile Clay Paky fixtures have already achieved in the US and approached us with a proposal to work together. That has now resulted in an arrangement which we see as a win-win for both parties."
The deal was brokered at the very highest levels during a series of meetings involving top management at Clay Paky and PRG. President and managing director Pasquale Quadri (Paky) took part in the negotiations along with PRG Chief Operating Officer Kevin Baxley.
"We couldn't have selected a better partner in North America," comments Quadri. "PRG is well-known for its reach, depth of knowledge and first-rate credits: the company has supported U2, Pearl Jam, Super Bowl XLII, Daimler Chrysler, HP, the Grammy and Academy Award shows, and many Broadway productions. And Clay Paky has a reputation for innovative professional lighting for the show and entertainment markets. So we anticipate a very successful association as we move forward together."
Tim Brennan will be managing Clay Paky distribution for PRG.
