Stagecraft Industries, Inc. has announced the opening of a regional sales office in Phoenix, AZ, and the appointment of Buddy Combs as the local regional sales representative.

The new office joins Stagecraft branches in Seattle and in Oakland, CA providing sales and technical support for equipment installation projects in the Southwest.

Combs is an industry veteran with an outstanding record as a teacher, technical director, designer, and consultant. Over his 15-year tenure at Northern Arizona University, he has come to know the theatres and the theatre people in Arizona. In addition, his many design credits, his service on the Lighting Commission for USITT and his experience consulting on theatre renovations, make him a valuable resource for architects, consultants, and facility managers throughout the region.

“Over the years, we’ve built and installed stage equipment for hundred’s of Arizona projects”, said Stagecraft CEO, Mark Walter. “With Buddy anchoring our Phoenix office, we can give our customers the local service and support they deserve.”
