Robe’s key account manager for Europe, Michel Arntz said: “Norway is an important market and, in Prostage, we have a strong and proactive partner to move our business forward to the next level and are looking forward to a long and successful relationship with the team there.”

Prostage AS was established in 2008 by CEO Gunnar Waldemar Naas with the goal of offering quality and cost-efficient professional lighting, sound, and stage products. Prostage co-owner, Carl Tidemann, said: “We are super-excited to be working with Robe. We have watched the brand for some time and seen it become a market leader and a constant innovator over the last decade. We know there is a demand for all of Robe’s current product ranges in Norway and we are confident that this is an excellent match.”

Tidemann sees Robe’s ‘Made in the Czech Republic’ status as an advantage in Norway. He also says he enjoys taking customers to the Robe factory to see how everything is made. “On top of that, they will enjoy the stunning surroundings of the Wallachia region of Moravia … which Norwegians will appreciate as they have a huge amount of their own raw beauty, dramatic scenery, and nature. Not forgetting the exchange of those famous Czech and Norwegian hospitalities, ” he added. “We are aligned with Robe’s values on multiple levels, and striving to be the best, we see so many opportunities to get the brand the recognition it deserves in Norway.”
