tpi awardsPearce Hire is proud to announce that the company has been shortlisted for an award at this year's Total Production International (TPi) Awards.

These prestigious awards, established 12 years ago, and now an annual 'must attend' date in the calendar, recognises excellence in the services supplied to the live production industry.

Pearce Hire has been nominated, for the second year running, for 'Favourite Power Supply Company'.

'We are honoured to have been short-listed by an industry-wide voting system as one of the top six power suppliers in this category. It's a huge accolade and one that is testament to the professionalism of the team, the kit and the service we offer here at Pearce Hire', states Shaun Pearce, MD of Pearce Hire.

Pearce Hire was established over 25 years ago and offers expertise in temporary power distribution for the live, touring, and outdoor event markets.

With an extensive inventory of power distribution, site lighting and cabling, supported by a highly qualified in-house team of electrical project managers and fully qualified electricians, Pearce Hire saw a massive increase in the projects they supplied over the extraordinarily busy months of 2012. Projects they worked on during 2012 included a full summer of events for customers as diverse as the Forestry Commission and the National Trust, the Cambridge Folk Festival (itself a 'Highly Commended' event at the Greener Festival Awards), and Wilderness, Global Gathering and Lovebox festivals.

'We've been nominated in this category both years it has been awarded, and so we would be delighted to win for the team's efforts over these amazingly busy, but rewarding 12 months'.

See the winners announced at the TPi Awards 2013, taking place on 11th February at the Novotel London West and hosted by Lauren Laverne.

PLASA FocusPearce Hire have announced that they will be exhibiting for the first time ever at PLASA Focus: Leeds 2013. This regional two-day event is the premier entertainment technology trade show in the North of England and is run by the industry trade body PLASA.

'We have watched the impressive development of PLASA Focus as it has established itself as a strong and effective regional event, and we felt that 2013 was the right time to get involved', states Shaun Pearce, MD of Pearce Hire.

The past year has seen significant expansion for Pearce Hire in a number of areas, with an increased warehouse footprint at their HQ in Peterborough. The company has also made significant investments in their product inventory and expanded the team to meet the challenges and demands of a diverse range of customers. All in all this should ensure that excellent service standards are maintained for Pearce Hire's loyal and new customers.

'These expansion plans have been part of a broader company strategy,' continues Pearce. 'And part of that strategy is to expand our rental operation more into the northern market. Exhibiting at PLASA Focus: Leeds 2013 is naturally part of that plan. There is no other regional exhibition servicing the live touring and outdoor event industry in the North. Having made significant investments in new equipment over the past year, it is important for us to now increase our brand awareness nationwide. PLASA Focus will help Pearce Hire to achieve this'.

Showmans ShowPearce Hire is pleased to confirm its return to the Showman's Show this month. A regular supporter of the annual exhibition, the team from Pearce Hire will be ready to share the news of their busiest summer ever and talk about their expertise in providing solutions for the technical challenges of any outdoor, or indoor event.

Comments Shaun Pearce, MD of Pearce Hire, 'The Showman's Show is ideally timed as it offers a platform for us to catch up with our customers at the end of the hectic summer season. The challenges and successes of the season are still fresh in everyone's minds and it allows an opportunity for us to sit down and plan for next year. We can review what has happened over the past few months and then act upon it and build on those experiences in order to produce even better events in 2013.'

It has been a non-stop summer for Pearce Hire as they worked with their diverse and loyal customer base including the Cambridge Folk Festival, the Forestry Commission tour, Cambridge and Peterborough City Councils and production companies Media 10, Hawk AV and Mama Bars. On top of that, Pearce Hire has been involved in some high profile events in recent months, working alongside JA Productions. And the autumn is promising to be just as busy.

Pearce Hire's know-how lies in temporary power supply and distribution, lighting, and audio equipment hire, and production and project management services. With the recent expansion to their premises, a significant investment of over £200k in their hire and installation inventory, and an expanding production team, Pearce Hire is well placed to talk to new and existing customers about what technical services they can provide for upcoming projects - both locally, nationally and internationally.

'At Pearce Hire we pride ourselves on the way we work alongside our clients to develop and implement ideas from their inception. This approach means all our customers, be they new or existing - can see how much value we add and how we demonstrate our commitment to each project from the start. We like to work with clients when their ideas are hot off the press, and to help them develop their ideas from that point onwards', concludes Pearce.

See Pearce Hire on stand 37 at The Showman's Show, Newbury Showground, Wednesday 17th and Thursday 18th October 2012.
