UAE – Protec, one of the world’s leading event solutions providers, headquartered in Dubai, UAE, has entered into an agreement with Bumat Motion Systems GmbH, the world’s leading manufacturer of turntables and revolves since 1948. Through this agreement, Protec will be better-positioned to provide its partners and customers with a more comprehensive product offer, and the industry’s leading source in the Middle East for turntables and revolving platforms rentals for events and exhibitions held in the region.
Protec’s Founder and CEO – Stephen Lakin said: “Over the last year we have had more and more requests for revolves, particularly in the motor industry. We felt that working together with a world leader like Bumat would be the ideal solution to beef up our stocks with a quality product that we could offer our clients. Bumat’s modular system can supply turntables of any size and carrying capacity, made of aluminium or steel, in diameters ranging from 0.1m to 55m and capable of accommodating load weights from 10kg to 450 metric tons. Our customers can now order turntables out of the standard-system or have them planned and manufactured according to their individual requirements. They can individualize any turntable with regards to carrying capacity, installation height, construction design, mode of operation and serviceability.”
As a market-leader, Protec is known for its exceptional event technical deliveries with the ability to use the latest technologies and equipment drawn from its vast portfolio. It currently owns one of the world’s largest stocks of audio, video, lighting, scenic and staging, robotics, motion tracking, backline, rigging, SFX and conference solutions equipment. It’s not uncommon for the company to be seen at the heart of some of the most technically challenging shows produced in the Middle East, Africa, Europe, Asia and the Far East. The company only recently bolstered its lighting, video and audio departments with more investments apart from recruiting more world class talent to further reinforce their over 140 strong team. According to Lakin, this latest development with Bumat has strengthened the company’s commitment to providing its clients in the region nothing short of the best products and services and should allow Protec to serve more companies with more flexible and scalable services.
This agreement between Protec and Bumat, both global leaders in their own right, should boost the Middle East’s ability further in terms equipment and expertise offered.
