Named by the London Stock Exchange as one of the ‘1,000 Companies to Inspire Britain,’ Hawthorn creates technical solutions for a range of events and offers equipment rental and sales, permanent installation and full technical event production services.
“I’ve been aware of Adamson for a number of years and have always been very impressed with its quality, from how their loudspeakers sound to ease of rigging and now, it’s great to see it on many riders and installation specifications in the U.K.,” comments Rob Allen, Hawthorn’s group head of sound. “We’re very proud to be one of the first companies in the U.K. to become a Certified Reseller and are very much looking forward to working with Adamson and The Warehouse.”
Founded more than 30 years ago, Hawthorn has become a leading service provider for its creative use of technology and innovative approach to audio, video, lighting, staging, scenic and power distribution services for installations and live events. The company’s clients consist of a broad range of corporate customers and agencies, along with concert and theatre productions. Hawthorn serves its clients in both traditional and non-traditional event spaces and is the preferred provider of its services in several notable venues in the U.K.
Hawthorn has provided audio visual solutions for a range of high profile clients, including Europe’s largest digital marketing conference, Adobe Summit EMEA, the UK’s largest games event, EGX, Sundown Festival, The National Theatre’s U.K. tour of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, the U.K. tour of Sister Act, and much more.
Earlier this year, Adamson, together with its U.K. distributor, The Warehouse Sound Services, launched the install-focused IS-Series in the U.K at PLASA London. The IS-Series packs the company’s tour-grade technology into architecturally friendly boxes with rugged and unobtrusive rigging solutions.
Derek Blair, director of The Warehouse, says: “We are delighted to have Hawthorn on board as one of the first Adamson Certified Resellers in the U.K. They have a wealth of experience in the installation and rental markets and are well-known for providing the very best equipment with customer service that is second to none. We look forward to a long and fruitful partnership.”
