As part of a continued effort to increase the availability of its automated lighting systems, Vari-Lite has announced the establishment of a Northeast dealer network, made up of eight of that area's top rental houses, who will carry a full line of VARI*LITE® products for sale, for rent, or in many cases, both.

The Northeast dealer network includes:

Barbizon, New York, sales
High Output, Boston, sales and rental
Parlights, Frederick, MD, sales and rental
PRG/Fourth Phase, North Bergen, NJ, sales and rental
Starlite Productions, Cherry Hill, NJ, sales and rental
TMB Associates, Englewood, NJ, sales
Vincent Lighting SystemsCleveland, sales and rental
VLPS New York, New York, rental

"Each member of this dealership network has a solid reputation among lighting professionals and has established itself as a leader within the industry," said Bob Schacherl, Vari-Lite's vice president of sales and marketing. "Vari-Lite will continue to explore opportunities to add to its dealer network where and when it makes sense financially and strategically."

In addition to carrying Vari-Lite's Series 2000(tm) products, these dealers will carry the new VARI*LITE® VL1000(tm) ellipsoidal reflector spotlight.

Other regional dealer networks will be announced as they become finalized.
