Managing director of CCPP, Clint Cawood, has officially announced his acquisition of C&S Audio, a leading Cape Town-based rental and production company currently headed up by Donald Clark. In a recent interview with Pro-Systems News, Cawood confirmed that the deal would be effective from 1 June 2018.

C&S Audio is a well-established technical production and rental company based in the Maitland suburb of Cape Town. Clark has been at the head of the company for the past 22 years. From humble beginnings, the company has grown into one of the leaders in the Cape Town entertainment industry. CCPP Group specialises in providing rental services and technical support to the events industry. With offices in both Cape Town and George, CCPP has established itself as a trusted partner in the entertainment industry, that is able to offer a large variety of products and services.

Cawood has confirmed that, following the merger, C&S Audio will remain in its current location, and will continue to service clients in the same manner as the market has come to expect. “C&S Audio will continue operations as usual. However, with the combined inventory of C&S Audio and CCPP, we will be able to provide clients with a wider choice of equipment for hire as well as other value-added services in the months ahead,” states Cawood.

Clark adds that the clients who have come to rely on C&S Audio over the years will be in good hands with Cawood at the helm. “The merger will allow me the opportunity to seek other opportunities and take a much-needed hiatus from the day to day operations of the business,” Clark told Pro-Systems. While Clark will be stepping away, he will remain close to the business in a consultative position to ensure that effective hand over is achieved.

“We have a lot of work to do over the next few weeks. However, we are confident that the merger between CCPP and C&S Audio will support the development of a leading dry-hire business that will be better positioned to answer the needs of the entertainment industry in Cape Town and beyond. We are very excited about the future,” Cawood concludes.
