MAGNETIC STORM EVENTS

Blog  > News  > Robe Provides LED Solution for Magnetic Storm

12 December 2013

Magnetic Storm is a technical solutions, event organising and rental company based in Port Elizabeth, South Africa.

This company has been running successfully for 33 years, servicing a wide range of high quality corporate clients and live events – making it the oldest and largest such operation in the Eastern Cape.

Magnetic Storm originally invested in Robe moving lights – the 575 series – some years ago, which have proved reliable and solid after many years of dealing with the busy event schedules managed by Magnetic Storm.

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.

Glenn van Eck, founder of Magnetic Storm, states: "Robe offered by far the best option at the right price. It is a recognised industry standard brand”. He continued to highlight the excellent service and support from DWR which, according to Glenn, is "always good and another reason to buy Robe”.

Although making the events "greener” has not been at the forefront of the market in the area, he says that they’re aware that as a leading company, they have responsibilities to protect the environment and their impact on it wherever they can.

The Magnetic Storm team is also very proud to be working for the first company to have this technology in the area. One of the first events on which the new fixtures were used was the Nelson Mandela Bay Chamber of Commerce year-end function.
