Kilowatt AV, a leading creative and technical support supplier to the event and advertising industries and Sight and Sound, an audio-visual, lighting, staging and video rental specialist – have joined forces to establish Kilowatt Investments Holdings. The move will establish the group as one of the top five technical event support companies in the country.
According to Kilowatt AV MD, Dillon Jearey, the collaboration increases the companies’ market share across the small and larger events markets. “Up to now Kilowatt AV’s primary focus has been concept and production support of premium events. This move forms part of our ongoing quest to distinguish ourselves from our competitors as it allows us to expand our offering to include day-to-day technical elements for smaller events.”
Jearey maintains that the partnership is strengthened by both companies’ solid reputations and their passionate, client-centric approach. “The majority of our business stems from repeat clients. Our clients can be assured that no matter the size of their event, they will receive the same premium treatment that they have come to expect from both companies, one which aims to deliver only exceptional events.”
Justin Jacks, MD of Sight and Sound says that after catering to smaller corporate events for the last 30 years it recognized the need to partner with a company that had a reputation within the larger event industry. “This symbiotic relationship will enable us to cover all event bases, to refer business to each other, as well as cementing our national footprint.”
Recognised for national events such as the David Guetta and Deadmau5 concerts, and the Cape Argus Pick n Pay Cycle tour, Kilowatt AV recently manufactured the world’s first mobile skate park for Mountain Dew. Says Jacks, “I envision Kilowatt AV’s creative ethos having a positive influence and hope it will encourage us to be more innovative in order to broaden our offering.”
