It’s business as usual at PCM, the Wirral,UK-based flying and rigging sales specialists, despite the company’s last minute decision against participating at PLASA due to the current restructuring.

Paul Kelly has now assumed the role of MD, following the recent departure of John Jones. Kelly has been with the company for 12 years and has been general manger since 1997.

Everything else carries on as normal; the sales office is still active and operational, headed by Kelly and Tracy Hall. PCM carries a full range of Lodestar motors, extensive spares, motor controllers and accessories.

"It’s a very exciting time for PCM right now. However the timing of all the recent changes, the increased administration plus a very full order book to deal with meant something had to give," Kelly says. "After much deliberation, we decided not do PLASA this year, and instead focus all energies on the new look PCM and our ongoing work."
