Main Light, South to Open in Nashville this Spring
USA – In early April 2022, Main Light, LLC, a pre-eminent dry hire rental partner, will be opening a new facility in Nashville, TN. The new 70,000 sq. ft. Main Light, South shop under the direction of Main Light general manager, Randy Mullican, will be located at 12630 Old Hickory Blvd, Antioch, TN. Locally, Main Light, South will be led by rental account manager, Cathie Berbena Lloyd and operations manager, Jim Gregory. This will expand Main Light’s operations to a third location, joining Main Light, East in Wilmington, DE and Main Light, West in Las Vegas, NV.
Main Light’s expansion into Nashville builds upon their well-deserved reputation for efficient, responsive, and cost-effective customer service. “We found that choosing Nashville makes it much more efficient to support our clients in the area,” explains Mullican. “There was a lack of a dry hire options in this market, so it just made sense to open here, where we already have a number of clients. Now with moving into the right space for our facility here, along with the knowledgeable and experienced people that we have joining us, Main Light, South is the right choice for our clients and for our company. This central location gives us good positioning to offer an even quicker response to clients in the middle of the country; easily supporting our many clients in Atlanta, Florida, and right here in Nashville, as well as other production hot spots throughout the region.”
Jim Gregory will serve as the operations manager for Main Light, South reporting to Mullican. Gregory brings years of lighting and production experience to this role having worked most recently with Pulse Lighting, a design and lighting production company based in Nashville. Previously, he was the south-east regional sales manager with German Light Products, spent ten years as production manager with Delta Stage Lighting and 18 years as a lighting technician with Bradfield Stage Lighting.
Rental account manager Cathie Berbena Lloyd will report to Rick McKinney, Main Light rental manager. Lloyd joins Main Light, South having been manager of operations at Sightline Design Group in Nashville for the past four years and her prior experience includes six years as the general manager of 4Wall Nashville, eight years as national asset/operations manager for PRG and four years as operations manager for VLPS Lighting Services Inc. in Nashville. Lloyd also spent 12 years touring as technician/programmer/designer with Dallas-based Vari Lite Production Services.
“All of us welcome Jim and Cathie to Main Light,” says Mullican. “Both have great experience and strong relationships throughout the industry. They really strengthen our Main Light team, and we know that the new Main Light, South facility is in good hands. We are very excited to open the Main Light, South facility this spring and look forward to the opportunity of supporting our clients. Main Light, South will offer the same reliable and well-maintained equipment and high-quality customer service expected by our clients. That is a priority at all three Main Light locations: east, west and south, so our clients can confidently use any of our three shops that works best for their dry hire needs.”
