Bandit Lites purchases new facility in BedfordBandit Lites' new UK facility.
Bandit Lites has purchased a new 8,400sq.m facility in Bedford, UK, to serve as the 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," said Bandit Lites’ CEO, Michael Strickland. The building features high ceilings, a spacious prep floor, plenty of storage, a spacious loading and unloading area, and is wired for an extensive computer network.

General manager Jason Tang told us: "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."

Bandit Lites has had an extremely busy year already, putting out several high profile tours including Brian Wilson, Incubus, and Dream Theatre. The first tour to utilize the added space of the new warehouse is for Irish popstars, Westlife. The massive rig designed by Phay MacMahon and Barry Halpin benefited greatly from the added space and flexibility of the new building.
