THEATRE RENOVATION AND SHOW SYSTEMS EXPERT LA PROPOINT TAKES NEW OFFICE SPACE TO MEET FABRICATION AND ADMINISTRATIVE DEMANDS
New 27,000 Square Foot Facility in Sun Valley Doubles the Size of Company Headquarters
(Sun Valley, Calif.) December 2, 2008 – LA ProPoint, a national leader in the design, engineering, fabrication, and installation of stage and show systems, is pleased to announce that it is moving its headquarters to a larger facility, also located in Sun Valley, effective December 1, 2008.
The new office, which measures 27,000 square feet, nearly doubles the space available for both administrative and fabrication functions, which is crucial given that LAProPoint now counts more than 40 full-time employees and, despite the challenging economic times, is moving forward on several theatres, museum, and theme park projects. “Our headquarters in Sun Valley has served as an ideal launching point for our work in Southern California and throughout the state,” explained Mark Riddlesperger, founder and president of LAProPoint. “Our move ‘next door’ keeps us tapped into the creative pulse of LA’s entertainment industry while accommodating our growth.”
Since the company was founded in 2002, LA ProPoint’s highly skilled and experienced designers, technicians, fabricators, and craftsmen have established a reputation as the go-to team for theatre construction and renovation. Some of the company’s most notable theatre commissions include the REDCAT, the Walt Disney Concert Hall, the Kirk Douglas Theatre, El Rey Theatre, Nokia Theatre, and the Hollywood Bowl.
The company’s continued success during the recession can be credited to a decision to expand its scope of services. In addition to the fabrication, rigging and theatrical services that form the company’s core business offerings, LA ProPoint has been providing custom engineering, special effects and show action equipment to clients.
“Our team has always been dedicated to developing better solutions for a variety of entertainment venues—from concert halls to theme parks to outdoor amphitheaters,” said Jim Hartman, LA ProPoint’s vice president. “The new headquarters gives us the room we need to design, engineer and fabricate large scale customized stage and show systems for our clients.”
In 2009, LA ProPoint will participate in the new construction of several theatres in the Los Angeles Unified School District, take on a WWII museum project, continue its collaborations with Universal Studios, and pursue additional commissions in the international theme park market.
Since 2002, LA ProPoint has been a leading provider of design, engineering, fabrication and installation of stage and show systems for all aspects of the entertainment industry, from concert halls and theme parks to outdoor amphitheaters and movie sets. Strategically headquartered in Southern California in the city of Sun Valley, the company has a huge reach.
