Robe America announces the appointment of Tim Edwards as Western US sales manager, to run the new West Coast office in Burbank. Edwards will take care of all territories east of the Mississippi, and will also be responsible for all West Coast office operations.

Edwards was born and bred in California. He spent 15 years as a working musician after leaving high school. He also has over 20 years experience in manufacturing sales to his credit, including 17 as an independent sales rep, with a special interest in lighting. Edwards says, "The Robe product is excellent, and am looking forward to working with my friends and colleagues in Los Angeles and around the country!.

Michael Carattini comments, "We’re very excited to have Tim Edwards aboard the Robe America team. His character, experience and contacts bring additional depth and maturity to the company, and will provide invaluable and solid foundations for our Western US operations."

Moving the Robe America West Coast operation to Burbank makes the company close to all major rental and production companies and film studios. The warehouse and office will be a full service and stocking location for Robe America.

The new address is:

Robe America
215 W. Palm Ave, Suite 102
Burbank, CA 91502

New contact numbers will be announced shortly. In the meantime, all Robe West Coast enquiries should be directed via Robe America LLC on (954) 615 9100.

The move follows a recent restructuring of Robe America, complete with the establishment of a new East Coast operation in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and the appointment of Michael Carattini as President.
