Bandit Lites

announces its purchase of a new facility in Bedford, England to serve as headquarters for its European operations. "Given the tremendous growth we have experienced in the European market, we needed a larger facility to better suit our needs and aid in delivering the Bandit Standard to our customers," explains Bandit's CEO, Michael Strickland.

The building features high ceilings, a spacious prep floor, plenty of storage, excellent loading and unloading area, and is wired for an extensive computer network. General manager Jason Tang states, "The move to the new facility in Bedford is an extremely positive move for Bandit UK. This further establishes Bandit's European presence and shows that Bandit will be a major player here in the UK for many years to come. The move should contribute immensely to our growing operations and level of service that we offer our clients."

The first tour to utilize the added space of the new warehouse is Irish pop band Westlife. The massive rig designed by Phay MacMahon and Barry Halpin benefited greatly from the flexibility of the new building.
