City Theatrical Wins 3rd Business Award
Wednesday, 13 June 2001
For the third consecutive year, City Theatrical has been named to the Inner City 100 - a list of the fastest growing companies located in America's inner cities. The list is a joint project of Inc, magazine and the non-profit Initiative for a Competitive Inner City (ICIC). City Theatrical placed 52nd on the nationwide list of firms. "Inc. and ICIC started the list to reverse bad perceptions that prevent businesses from locating in inner cities - and therefore prevent inner cities from thriving," says City Theatrical president Gary Fails. "But they are finding that inner-city businesses actually set the pace for many business trends, including outstanding customer service and top-speed turnaround."Based in the Bronx, with easy access to New York's theatre district and suppliers, City Theatrical manufacturers precision lighting accessories for theatres, convention centres and other venues. As the dominant supplier of lighting accessories for New York's Broadway stages, the company's products are part of the city's most popular productions, including such shows as Chicago, Contact, Les Miserables, and Phantom of the Opera."City Theatrical is proud to be named to the Inner City 100 for the third year running," Fails adds. "Locating in the Bronx was a good business decision for us, and I'd like to think that by being here we also are contributing to the economic well-being of our neighborhood."
