Graham Cochrane will head up the Glasgow-based operation
UK - Liverpool based technical production, lighting, sound and AV specialist Adlib has announced the opening of a new Scottish office that will be based at the very heart of Scotland's buzzing entertainment industry ... in Glasgow city centre.

This is a direct response to the steady general overall increase in Adlib's work in Scotland in recent years, and also specifically to service and support several important new contracts won by the company's Installations & Sales division.

The new office will be headed up by Graham Cochrane, a well-known tour and production manager in Scotland and internationally. His regular work includes production managing at the high profile T In The Park festival, and he was also involved as a PM for the 2014 Glasgow Commonwealth Games. Adlib MD Andy Dockerty's personal working friendship with Graham stretches back many years.

Andy comments, "It made complete sense on all fronts to set up a Scottish office, especially with the recent expansion of our work there. However, the affinity with Scotland is not just a new or passing trend for Adlib, our connections go back at least 20 years and include working with some of the finest and most popular Scottish bands and musicians including Del Amitri, GUN and Texas.

"Graham is extremely well respected on the touring and festival scenes in Scotland, his knowledge and experience is invaluable and we're very fortunate to have someone of his calibre join our team."

In addition to enabling Adlib to have a more comprehensive commercial presence in Scotland and enhancing opportunities for the live and performance based work, the Scottish office will also facilitate new opportunities for all the core quality audio & lighting brands with which Adlib partners - including L-Acoustics, Coda and Soundcraft.

Adlib has recently won the design and installation tenders to supply audio for two high profile restaurants in central Glasgow which will commence in early 2015.

This will be followed by the installation of new technical infrastructure and systems at two Scottish churches in the spring.

Adlib Director John Hughes, who heads up the Sales & Installations division says, "The new Glasgow office will be a great strategic advantage to consolidate and develop business potential in Scotland, and help us maintain the same efficiency and quick response and service for which Adlib is known."

The new office will be officially inaugurated in early February 2015.
