HSL Announce Partnership With PSI

UK lighting and visuals rental specialist, HSL, has formed a new partnership with Production Services Ireland (PSI).
The merger sees PSI's highly successful and well established operations in Northern Ireland and the Irish Republic continue unchanged with the same directors, staff, facilities and distinct identity. PSI now has the additional advantage of access to HSL's massive equipment inventory and additional resources.
Combined annual sales are expected to reach £15m in the next 24 months, with more than 100 full-time skilled and talented employees working to ensure both companies' UK and Irish operations are streamlined and highly competitive.
Speaking about the merger, HSL's Managing Director Simon Stuart said: "Joining forces with PSI presented an ideal opportunity for us to work with like-minded, people-focused individuals in Ireland who are also dedicated to providing the very best equipment and services.
"PSI's reputation for excellence and innovation is right in tune with our core values."
PSI will have HSL's vast stock and resources at its disposal, including more than 5,000 moving lights, 3km of trussing and 800sq m of LED surfaces.
Last year, both HSL and PSI expanded and moved into new warehouse premises.
In recent years, the two companies have been collaborating closely on a number of high profile projects.
