White Light to service VARI*LITE23 January 2012
Entertainment lighting specialist White Light has announced its appointment as an Authorised Philips Vari-Lite Service Centre.
As an Authorised Service Centre, White Light now offers service and support of all VARI*LITE automated lighting fixtures, from the long-established VL500 and VL3000 families to the VLX range of LED fixtures. The company’s technicians can now carry out routine maintenance and servicing or repair work, including warranty repairs, for other VARI*LITE owners across the UK and Europe. White Light’s staff has already completed extensive training, and the company says that it has $100,000 of spare parts on-hand allowing most repairs to be carried out immediately.
“We are delighted by this appointment,” said Dave Isherwood, White Light’s Technical Director, “since to be chosen by one of the pioneering companies in automated lighting to be one of their very few Service Centres in Europe provides clear recognition of the skills and talents of White Light’s team of service engineers. They can now not only maintain our extensive fleet of equipment, as they have always done, but also the lighting rigs of every other user, venue and supplier of VARI*LITE products.”
“We welcome White Light to the Philips Vari-Lite family of Service Centres,” said Julie Smith, Director Global Support Services for Philips Vari-Lite. “White Light has a long-established reputation for excellent customer service and support, and we are happy that those high standards are now available to support our customers across Europe.”
