MDR Sound and lighting is a New Zealand based company specialized in the sales, service and hire of professional sound and lighting equipment for the entertainment industry. Recently, MDR have decided to expand its scope of equipment with truss/staging and after careful consideration, the decision was made to acquire the Eurotruss truss system and Stage Decks from Showtools International.
With this new collaboration between MDR and Showtools the Eurotruss brand becomes available in New Zealand for the first time. The first container that arrived to MDR consisted of Eurotruss Stage Decks with subsequent containers to come shortly after. MDR will soon be stocking the popular HD34 and HD44 square truss series.
The decision to acquire the Eurotruss System was due to the excellent load capacity of the truss, with the 3mm wall thickness enabling superior durability and extra strength in addition to its fast-conical connection system. Acquiring the Eurotruss Stage Decks was due to the versatile modular stage deck system to create stages, fashion show catwalks, tribunes and conference podiums. The Eurotruss Deck is characterized by its light weight, modularity and quality.
The acquisition of the Eurotruss products by MDR will allow Eurotruss to venture in New Zealand. As a result, this will allow MDR to expand its operations to potential new markets and enable future growth for both companies.
