Clay Paky is pleased to announce that it has signed Production Resource Group, LLC (PRG) as the exclusive distributor of Clay Paky moving lights in the US and English-speaking Canada.

Headquartered in New Windsor, New York, PRG provides lighting, audio, projection, scenery, and automation systems to a wide range of markets, including theatre, concert tours, trade shows, corporate and special events, TV, film, and themed environments. The company has more than 17 offices in North America, Europe, and Asia.

“We are very excited about our new association,” says Francesco Romagnoli, manager of North America and Latin America for Clay Paky. “We are confident that PRG will give Clay Paky the exposure it deserves in this important marketplace. This is an arrangement which we see as a win-win for both parties.”

The deal was brokered at the very highest levels during a series of meetings involving top management at Clay Paky and PRG. President and managing director Pasquale Quadri (Paky) took part in the negotiations along with PRG COO Kevin Baxley.

“We couldn’t have selected a better partner in North America,” comments Quadri. “PRG is well-known for its reach, depth of knowledge, and first-rate credits: the company has supported U2, Pearl Jam, Super Bowl XLII, Daimler Chrysler, HP, the Grammy and Academy Award shows, and many Broadway productions. And Clay Paky has a reputation for innovative professional lighting for the show and entertainment markets. So we anticipate a very successful association as we move forward together.”

Tim Brennan will be managing Clay Paky distribution for PRG.
