Founder of British Engineering Giant honoured at prestigious London Ceremony

UK - TAIT Towers has announced that Paul Sadler, founder of Delstar Engineering which was acquired by TAIT Towers in 2013, has received an ABTT fellowship.

The Association of British Theatre Technicians has bestowed its top honour, the ABTT Fellowship to Paul Sadler of TAIT Delstar Engineering.

The award is presented to industry individuals, whom the ABTT’s council of management wish to recognise as having rendered outstanding service to the technical aspects of the art of the theatre.

Since 1978, Sadler has been closely involved with innumerable industrial and theatrical projects from the stage settings for Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Starlight Express and The Phantom of the Opera, to many more including Chess (one of the first automated sets on the West End), The Lion King, Mamma Mia, and at least two productions of Oliver.

The complexity and variety of projects that Sadler has worked on are arguably unsurpassed in the industry.

Adam Golding, MD of TAIT Delstar said of Sadler’s award: “We are absolutely delighted that Paul’s work has been recognised. His vision, passion and creativity remains at the very heart of what we do here and will long continue, as we look to create and pioneer, a new wave of theatrical engineering.” Likewise: “We are ecstatic that Paul’s work is being recognised. This is exactly the reason why TAIT is proud to have merged and acquired Delstar, as Paul is superior in his creativity and ability to execute highly innovative materials in theatrical engineering. This type of recognition is outstanding and well-deserved,” said James Fairorth, CEO of TAIT Towers.

Paul Joins a long list of ABTT  fellows including David Adams, Ian Albery, Jason Barnes, David Blyth, Tony Bond, William Dudley, John Faulkner, Tim Foster, Roger Fox, Roderick Ham, Chris Higgs, Geoffrey Joyce, Iain Mackintosh, Richard Pilbrow, Francis Reid, Peter Roberts, John Simpson and Mark White.
