UK - As one of Prolyte's distributors for the UK, AED Distribution UK are uniquely placed to provide a raft of solutions to Prolyte users by combining services from the AED Toolbox with the Prolyte trussing & staging offering.

First of those solutions is free product training and support. On 22 and 23 April a Prolyte Campus was held at the Distribution UK facility located in High Wycombe.

Over 20 professionals attended during the two days, taking away a variety of hands-on experience and real-life experiments.

The Campus is a Prolyte Group driven initiative to support its customers with the best and most up-to-date knowledge available. Providing the tools and training to use the Prolyte Group products safely and in compliance with applicable standards and regulations will help them in performing better.

Prolyte Campus offers a complete programme of learning activities to create awareness on the safe use of Prolyte products. Feedback from the attendees

themselves was positive with comments such as "Well presented by highly knowledgeable and active Leaders".

Paul Hadfield, UK distribution manager for Prolyte Group was one of the trainers at the Campus and states, "It's always very stimulating to pass our knowledge to the users who make Prolyte perform day-in day-out. Hearing their stories and sharing experiences for us is an incentive to make our products even better."

Interest to attend the Prolyte Campus was very high and that's why AED Distribution and Prolyte immediately decided to plan a second training, taking place in September. For those that are interested in attending the next Campus, and would like to be kept in the loop please e-mail -

AED Distribution UK currently holds a large stock of Prolyte Truss and LightDeck products which, when combined with the AED Toolbox of solutions, enables professional AV customers to achieve all their technical goals without endangering their balance sheet. For instance, whether it be a combination of purchasing from AED Distribution along with AED Lease and rental from AED Rent, there is a solution to suit almost every scenario.

Launching on 1 May is the Prolyte Truss Exchange Programme, the last initiative in a row that strengthens the partnership between Prolyte, AED Distribution and the Prolyte user. This is sure to be a popular programme that will potentially enable all rental houses to find a structured way to exchange redundant truss for brand-new Prolyte truss.

Paul Young who has just joined AED Distribution as rigging brand manager, comments: "Taking a responsibility for awareness and training is something I feel very strongly about. Prolyte's approach to this subject is very impressive

and gives me confidence in working with them closer. AED group offers unrivalled facilities to support Prolyte and their customers."
