4Wall Entertainment announced the opening of its third location in Phoenix, AZ.

The new office is set to open September 2005 in a 15,000 sq. ft. facility. The Phoenix location, as with the other two locations in Las Vegas and New York, will be a full service operation specializing in rentals, sales, design, and service of entertainment lighting.

"4Wall has been serving Phoenix out of our Las Vegas office for a number of years. Our current level of business in the Phoenix market dictated an expansion of our operation to include a local shop," says Michael Cannon, CEO. "Opening a location in Phoenix is a natural progression of our long-term business growth."

Todd Mertzel will be heading up the Phoenix as the general manager. Prior to joining 4Wall's Las Vegas operation in 2004, Mertzel, was the general manager for VLPS Las Vegas. Nancy Tallman has been named vice president of business Development. She comes to 4Wall from Sunbelt Scenic, where she has been a production executive for the past 16 years. "We expect that the opening of this new branch will strengthen our capabilities throughout the entire Southwest," says Mertzel. "It will also allow us to continue providing the Phoenix market with the level of service that customers throughout the country have come to expect from 4Wall."
