Bandit Lites has purchased additional facilities in Nashville, Tennessee. Michael Strickland, CEO states "In order to meet our client's expectation of the Bandit Standard, we needed an additional facility. With this space we will be able to quadruple our output in Nashville." While the current property will continue to serve as the main base of operations, the new warehouse will serve as an overflow storage facility and a suitable space for preparing multiple shows to the Bandit Standard, while still allowing for expansion.
Bandit's Vice President, based in Nashville, Michael Golden explains, "Our plan will involve a fully staffed facility to build and prep systems while our current facility will become more of an administration and pre-rehearsal programming facility. It is our goal and intention to make the hanging facility a comfortable place for the Artist can come to see their show being programmed and to add input without any distraction."
The new building is located directly behind the current property and features over 140,000 square feet of space to work with and a forty-foot high ceiling. This warehouse features both front and back office space and is completely wired for computer network compatibility. With 22 loading docks, and parking for 150 vehicles Bandit will be able to expedite the process of dropping off and loading gear for multiple tours simultaneously. Golden states, "With the acquisition of our newest property in Nashville we will now be able to offer the largest inventory of lighting under one roof anywhere in America." Bandit looks to this facility to help meet the demands of its ever-growing client roster and with continued expansion globally.
