MGG Goes Mega in South Africa!
MGG, one of South Africa’s leading rental and production specialists, is the first to invest in Robe’s new MegaPointe moving light. MGG’s owner and founder Mark Gaylard explained that they have done phenomenally well with the standard Pointe, where again they blazed the trail with the first 12 in SA rental stock, having bought them from distributor DWR. The initial 24 x luminaires were delivered to MGG by DWR whose Duncan Riley stated, “I think the industry has been waiting for this fixture – something that’s so much more than a beam light and delivers all the other modes in equal measure. It’s bright and fills a gap, and being Robe engineered guaranteed to be reliable”. MGG’s MegaPointes will immediately be going to the new 10,000 capacity Sun Arena at Time Square just outside Pretoria, where MGG is the in-house technical services provider. All their crew, along with everyone else in the SA production industry, is keen to see them in action there on a diversity of shows. MGG currently has around 600 Robe figures in stock. The current inventory includes BMFL Blades, LEDWash 600s and 1200s LEDBeam 100s, DigitalSpots, Cyc 8s, CitySkapes, Pointes … and now MegaPointes! Mark mentions the “fantastic” support and after-sales service they receive from DWR on all Robe products. They have some older units including first generation LEDWash 600s and their CitySkape 48 LED floods were also purchased around the same time… all still going strong, out on jobs and working hard. With the parts and service from DWR efficient and well-priced, they can effectively run their futures fixture for longer, ultimately offering substantially increased ROI.
