4412 MERGES WITH ELITE SOUND & LIGHTING
Two of Canberra’s AV companies, 4412 and Elite Sound & Lighting, are merging and will commence trading as Elite Event Technology on 1st July 2016. The merger pools the collective skills of the companies’ directors Darren Russell from Elite, and both George Chrysostomou and David Bowron from 4412.
Both from Canberra, David and George are looking forward to working closer to home. The duo brings extensive experience earned from national and international projects on major corporate and entertainment events. Originally from the South Coast of NSW, Darren moved to Canberra in 2000 and, together with wife Keri, has built a successful business as a market leader in the sound, lighting and vision industry.
“The beauty of this merger” says Darren “is that we’ve been growing year on year and had reached the peak of what a family company could achieve and knew I needed partners to continue the growth; 4412 are a perfect fit”. The synergy created by the companies merging is an ideal match. “We’ve worked as technical directors, production managers and site managers on a variety of events but don’t own a lot of equipment” says George “and we’ve worked closely with Elite previously because they do own state of the art equipment” adds David.
The new venture will be housed in the purpose-built Elite warehouse at Hume, ACT.
