BLUMANO Ltd is an engineering-based company headquartered in the UK and working internationally which has been launched to provide a whole range of specialist services, expertise and consultancy which is related to lifting and load-bearing equipment for stages and other areas of entertainment industry production.
The company is headed by two industry professionals – Cristiano Giavedoni and Amedeo Guizzi. They bring many years of experience and a vast knowledge of the professional entertainment industry to the equation as well as their respective individual areas, plus imagination and an innovative approach.
Amedeo is a structural, mechanical and materials engineer with extensive experience working for high profile live entertainment projects. He is a skilled performer flying Project & Technical Manager and has been Technical Director for numerous live shows and festivals. He has also worked as Technical Manager for Litec Trusses and Staging Systems Europe. Amedeo’s qualifications include being a Health & Safety Co-ordinator and working at height and he is a member of the Italian Association of Engineers.
Cristiano has been a Senior Product and Business Development Manager for three of the best known brands in the entertainment industry – Litec Trussing & Staging Systems Europe, Columbus McKinnon’s entertainment division including chain hoists and lifting equipment, and latterly, Business & Marketing Director for UK automation systems manufacturer, Kinesys.
This aggregate experience and enormous synergy makes BLUMANO Ltd ideally placed to offer a dynamic range of services. These will include system integration of structures and machinery, structural calculations; site installation consultancy and project management; and safety assessments and engineering approvals.
BLUMANO Ltd is a global organisation, speaking English, French and Italian and it is keen to maximise these and other talents worldwide working with manufacturers, rental companies, system integrators and trade associations.
Cristiano and Amedeo sit on many national and international standardisation committees such as CEN, BSI and UNI.
The company will fill a frequently perceived gap that exists between elements of structural engineering / stage machinery and production companies/systems integrators.
While the creative and technical requirements of projects are fully understood, some of the more complex disciplines related to legal and conformity aspects of staging and machinery installations are less familiar and need the attention of a dedicated organisation with all the correct resources in place.
Other areas covered by BLUMANO Ltd will include machinery risk assessments, compliance with EU regulations, engineering guidelines, technical drawings, training and conferences, Health & Safety consultancy, together with all the administrative support, ‘paperwork’ and backup that is expected from a quality operation.
