The event solutions provider Protec, headquartered in Dubai, has signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) to establish a new business relationship with Bumat Motion Systems, a manufacturer of turntables and revolves. Through this agreement, Protec will be better positioned to provide its clients with a more comprehensive product offering, providing turntables and revolving platform rentals for events and exhibitions held in the Middle East.

Stephen Lakin, founder and CEO at Protec, commented: “Over the last year we have had more and more requests for revolves, particularly in the motor industry. We felt that working together with a world leader like Bumat would be the ideal solution to beef up our stocks with a quality product that we could offer our clients. Our customers can now order turntables out of the standard-system or have them planned and manufactured according to their individual requirements. They can individualise any turntable with regards to carrying capacity, installation height, construction design, mode of operation and serviceability”.

Protec currently owns a large stock of audio, video, lighting, scenic and staging, robotics, motion tracking, backline, rigging, SFX and conference solutions equipment. It has been involved in some of the most technically challenging shows produced in the Middle East, Africa, Europe, Asia and the Far East. This agreement between Protec and Bumat, is set to boost the Middle East’s ability further in terms of equipment and expertise offered.

Timo Burgmeier, managing director at Bumat, added: “Bumat manufactures a highly sophisticated and long lasting product. Bumat’s engineering achievements enable our clients to take advantage of all conceivable combinations of complex revolving, rotating, elevating and traversing movements.

“As an owner-run family business, we have been installing systems and managing numerous projects for well-known customers all around the globe since the company was founded in 1948. Dedicated assembly and service teams with many years of experience are at our customers’ disposal wherever they may be: in Germany, Europe or anywhere else in the world. We are very excited and we are sure that our agreement with Protec will be a positive step – both for us as well as the Middle East region.”
