ASPEC Merges With PLASA

News Image
From this month, members of the Association of Studio and Production Equipment Companies (ASPEC) will be operating under the umbrella of PLASA, the international trade association that addresses the needs of the film, television and broadcast community.
"Members of ASPEC will benefit greatly from PLASA's knowledge, experience and resources," a statement from ASPEC said.
"ASPEC will be working closely with PLASA's Production Equipment Rental Group (PERG), its counterpart group based in North America, discussing and sharing common rental issues which affect all those involved in the sector. It will be the beginning of a new and exciting chapter."
ASPEC has operated in its present format since 1994, comprising many of the UK's facilities companies in the film, television and broadcast industries.
ASPEC is involved in training at all levels and works closely with Skillset and Assessment Centres on standards, qualifications and apprenticeships.
ASPEC members meet frequently to keep fully abreast of the ideas, events and projects essential to the industry.
Regular guest speakers advise members on safety, legal, transport, technical, financial, insurance and production matters.
ASPEC's Chair, John Rendall, and Secretary, Kate Furssedonn, will remain in their current positions.
