Maverick rigging industry personality John Jones launched a new company LTM - Lift Turn Move, at PLASA 2004, stating "It’s the perfect opportunity - having the whole industry in one place at one time!"

LTM is a new, independently owned company that will specialize in the sale of Lodestar Motors and other rigging accessories for the professional leisure and entertainment industries. Jones is joined by co-director David King. The LTM team is further boosted by Dawn Gerrard, Paul Hadfield and Dave Ward – all skilled and knowledgeable in the world of rigging and show presentation, and all previous colleagues at PCM.

The hand-picked, tightly focused operation will concentrate on making life simple, friendly, efficient and cost-effective for the client. Says Jones, "People can call up and speak directly to the person they need to and place their orders or arrange a demo quickly and easily!" He adds that it’s great to be working in a smaller and highly motivated focussed environment once again.

LTM is based in Birkenhead on the Wirral Peninsula at the centre of the current Merseyside regeneration strategy.
