SINGAPORE: Kinesys has named Total Solution as its new distributor for Singapore. The automation and motion control solutions manufacturer stated that ‘the move underlines the increased trend for motion control and movement systems becoming a visual element of live shows, events and spectaculars’. Total Solution specialises in the distribution of lighting, rigging and special effects products across Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand and Indonesia, representing brands such as MA Lighting, Ayrton, Globl Truss and Chainmaster, as well as Christie’s Pandora’s Box.
‘There’s been a surge of interest in Kinesys in Asia generally in the last two to three years, and the timing of this deal is perfect for us to capitalise on this and increase our brand exposure and market share,’ said Kinesys managing director Dave Weatherhead. ‘Total Solution is a strong company that is well-established and respected, and we’re looking forward to a very positive working relationship.’
Total Solution was founded by Glenn Wong in 1998 and he has been aware of Kinesys for some time. Since the deal was signed, Kinesys’ director of support and training, Martin Honeywill, provided training for the Total Solution team.
‘The interest in Kinesys in particular has grown in the last three years and we’ve had inquiries from numerous customers and potential clients as more productions are using more complex movement systems to create “wow” factors for their shows,’ he explained. ‘Dave, Martin and everyone I have met and spoken to who is involved with Kinesys are nice, straight talking and highly intelligent. They are great people with which to do business.’
