Adlib expands into Scotland with new Glasgow office13 January 2015
Adlib has announced the opening of a new Scottish office in the heart of Glasgow city centre.
The Liverpool-based technical production, lighting, sound and AV specialists made the move in response to a steady increase in Adlib’s work in Scotland over recent years. It also serves specifically to support several important new contracts won by the company’s installations and sales division.
The new office will be headed up by Graham Cochrane, a well-known tour and production manager in Scotland and internationally. His regular work includes production managing at the high profile ‘T In The Park’ festival, and he was also involved as a PM for the 2014 Glasgow Commonwealth Games.
Adlib managing director Andy Dockerty commented: “It made complete sense on all fronts to set up a Scottish office, especially with the recent expansion of our work there. However, the affinity with Scotland is not just a new or passing trend for Adlib, our connections go back at least 20 years and include working with some of the finest and most popular Scottish bands and musicians including Del Amitri, GUN and Texas.
“Graham is extremely well respected on the touring and festival scenes in Scotland, his knowledge and experience is invaluable and we’re very fortunate to have someone of his calibre join our team.”
In addition to enabling Adlib to have a more comprehensive commercial presence in Scotland and enhancing opportunities for the live and performance based work, the Scottish office will also facilitate new opportunities for all Adlib’s audio and lighting partners, including L-Acoustics, Coda and Soundcraft.
Adlib Director John Hughes, who heads up the sales and installations division said: “The new Glasgow office will be a great strategic advantage to consolidate and develop business potential in Scotland, and help us maintain the same efficiency and quick response and service for which Adlib is known.”
