Czech moving light manufacturer Robe Show Lighting announced the appointment of LMP Lichttechnik as its new German distributor at PLASA. This follows Robe's recent appointment of Coe-tech as its UK distributor, and a successful PLASA show, where it launched its new AT Series of intelligent fixtures, with six featured products and more to come.

Based in Ibbenb├╝ren, in northern Germany, LMP is one of the largest lighting sales operations in Europe, and is ideally placed to service Robe's active expansion as a direct sales operation. Robe's Josef Valchar comments, "We chose LMP because it's a very well established company with much experience and familiarity with the moving light market. Their after-sales support and backup is also renowned, and we are looking forward to LMP expanding Robe's presence in the all-important German market."

LMP's Uli Petzold says, "Robe was an obvious choice. We are already familiar with Robe's products, and know that the build and engineering quality is excellent. We also feel these fixtures are priced exactly right in terms of value for money, and that Robe's decision to go to the market direct is very timely."
