Sunrise, FL- Chauvet, a leading global supplier of entertainment lighting and trussing, announces the opening of a California-based branch office and satellite distribution center in September. Technical support, training and demo programs serving the US western region will be handled from the California facility, which is expected to be fully operational in November; all main brands under the Chauvet umbrella are represented, including CHAUVET® Professional, CHAUVET® DJ, ILUMINARC® and TRUSST®.
Chauvet is actively recruiting quality control technicians, lighting techs and administrative personnel to complement an existing California-based team that includes John Dunn, western sales territory manager for the CHAUVET Professional and ILUMINARC brands and Todd Runkle, western sales territory manager for the CHAUVET DJ and TRUSST brands.
The state-of-the-art facility is strategically located at 7555 N. San Fernando Road, Sun Valley, CA, offering immediate access to the 5, 134, 101, 170 and 118 freeways, and in close proximity to major studios and to Los Angeles.
Besides facilitating faster technical support and a stronger partnership with Chauvet dealers in the west, the center will also handle some warehousing and distribution.
“Chauvet already has the fastest distribution in the industry,” CEO Albert Chauvet said. “Having our own California facility will allow us to be even more efficient and cost effective, particularly in shipments to our TRUSST customers on the west coast.”
All other USA operations and a majority of global operations continue to be handled from Chauvet’s global USA headquarters in South Florida, while Chauvet Europe, based in the United Kingdom, services Europe.
