Canada/USA - Christie Lites has made a major commitment to Kinesys automation with the purchase of Elevation Liftket 500kg chain hoists as their flagship automation products going forward – both 200V and 400V systems - for North America and Europe.
The initial investment has also included Kinesys LibraCELL load monitoring and Mentor 4 E-Stop aggregators to provide a full Kinesys safety architecture as well as the powerful and flexible Kinesys Vector control.
This will be available to clients worldwide throughout all of Christie’s 13 shops.
The move coincides with the appointment of Mark ‘The Drifter’ Desloges to head up Christie’s new Automated Motion Control & Rigging division, established to co-ordinate this specialist area of technical production.
Extensive specialist Kinesys training will be implemented for all Christie crew working on the systems.
Drifter will be based in Toronto, Canada, and will spend his time between Christie’s facility there and, primarily, their Orlando hub, the home of Christie Lites Enterprises and where much of the Kinesys kit will be stationed when not on the road.
David Bond of Kinesys USA commented, “Huntly Christie is very discerning when it comes to choosing the brands and product types his company carries. We are very proud to be his chosen automation manufacturer and envisage a prosperous relationship with his company. Drifter’s energy and experience, along with the Christie Lites sales team, will help drive our products to the current Christie Lites market and beyond, further increasing our presence in both the North American and European regions.”
