VER Completes Acquisition of Aurora Lighting Hire

VER, a provider of production equipment and engineering support, has completed its acquisition of Aurora Lighting Hire Ltd (Aurora).

The acquisition is the latest move in VER's strategic plan to expand its lighting capabilities and equipment inventory throughout the UK and Europe.

Steve Hankin, Chief Executive Officer of VER, said: "We are very excited to team with Aurora, an industry-leading lighting rental house that offers the UK a boutique, premier service. Over the next year, we will invest significantly to expand the equipment offering and other resources to support the tremendous demand for their service. The combination of Aurora's knowledge and quality service with VER's broader product line will offer Aurora's clients a truly one-of-a-kind resource."

Nick Edwards, Managing Director of Aurora, added: "VER is a global leader in the provision of quality entertainment and broadcast media solutions and as such, is perfectly positioned to provide the investment and support that will help grow Aurora and ensure our clients have access to all they need to be successful."

"I am delighted that Aurora is joining forces with VER. Combining the resources and strengths of our companies has created an unbeatable team with a shared passion for service and an incredible range of production solutions. I know this will be a huge asset to myself and other freelance lighting designers, both now and for the future," commented Chris Rigby, founding director of Aurora.

Aurora will retain its name, staff and services under the acquisition, with plans to move into a new, state-of-the-art facility alongside VER. Aurora's clients will also benefit from the expanded capabilities offered by VER and a more extensive inventory of equipment.
