GLP to open North America office

13 October 2009 16.30 BST

(USA) - German lighting giants, GLP, have set up a new office in North America headed by experienced lighting professional, Mark Ravenhill.

A Los Angeles location – in the densely populated industrial district of Torrance - has been strategically selected to place GLP at the heart of the traditional West show production and event staging industry – a major part of GLPs business.

In addition, GLP North America will be handling direct sales and marketing of the G-LEC range of video LED products into the marketplace (the company having recently been acquired by GLP).

Well known for his design and production work on the other side of the Atlantic, Mark Ravenhill says he is relishing the challenge. “It is a great opportunity to further exploit the enormous success of the expanding Impression range and at the same time reunite with my friends and colleagues in the industry over here.”

Joining Mark will be AnnaLise Laundrup, who brings nearly 12 years experience from working with Martin Professional  - for much of the time as International Exhibition and Events Manager. A native Dane (who is multilingual), she has worked all over the world and presently resides in Los Angeles.

Elation Professional will remain GLP’s distributor for the Impression range. But this development will enable the company to offer Elation much closer support, emphasises Ravenhill, who in addition to heading up the operation will retain his position as GLP’s Director of Global Key Players - ensuring prime customers around the world are kept informed of developments.

Says GLP’s business director, Kasper Gissel, “The move is in line with our strategy for growth. The Impression range of LED heads has surpassed all expectations and has quickly become the de facto standard in high-output, low-wattage luminaires — particularly for television, location lighting and concert stage lighting. Therefore Los Angeles is the obvious location for our new office.”

GLP’s new office can be found at 1330, Storm Parkway, Torrance,
CA 90501, USA.
