Coe-tech, located in England, has announced an exclusive UK distribution dealership with leading Czech lighting manufacturer Robe. Robe equipment is already a familiar to users of TAS, Futurelight, Saggiter and Movietech, as the company has made the moving light units sold under all these brand names for some years.

Coe-tech MD Ian Brown comments, “We were looking for a new, good quality, range of moving lights to add to our portfolio. Robe fits the bill perfectly, and I jumped at the chance of representing them in the UK” He adds that Robe’s technology and engineering qualities are already tried-and-tested, and “We look forward to establishing the Robe brand at the forefront of moving light technology.”

Announcement of the Robe deal is the latest in a series of brand restructuring moves undertaken by Coe-tech. “Our philosophy is to increase Coe-tech’s new ranges and improve the breadth and scope of our existing product ranges, and also to ensure that all the moving light brands available through Coe-tech are readily accessible and represent great value for money”.

Robe is based in the Czech Republic. The company currently employs 250 people, working in a modern factory facility, featuring the latest CNC machinery and automated production. Robe also has a team of in-house designers and an active R&D department.

Robe’s Josef Valchar says, “It’s great to be working with Coe-tech. They are one of the most respected UK sales companies, and have a great hands-on work ethic that’s fuelled their success in the moving light market. We will make a great team!”

Coe-tech still continues to enthusiastically support its existing light brands Studio Due and Futurelight.
