Christie® a global player in the manufacture of visual solutions, recently named Stage Audio Works as its Authorised Service Centre for South Africa.

Through this appointment, Stage Audio Works will provide the following technical support services to Christie’s customers in South Africa:
• Technical telephone support
• Service and repair Christie products under warranty
• A local inventory of parts and consumables for Christie products

This arrangement will help to support the growth of Christie’s business in South Africa since the opening of its first Southern hemisphere branch office in Johannesburg this time last year.

Dale Miller, Vice President EMEA for Christie explains, “Our business in South Africa and Sub Saharan Africa has grown quickly since investment in our Johannesburg branch office. Now the appointment of Stage Audio Works to the role of Authorised Service Centre allows us to maintain the high standards our customers have come to expect of Christie Technical Support services, while ensuring our own Technical Support Engineers can continue their efforts to support further new business development and training in the region.’

To meet the 24/7 demands of the event staging industry and those of Christie’s partners and customers, Stage Audio Works has made a significant investment in a large inventory of Christie lamps, filters and essential spares and earlier this year further invested in a dedicated resource centre and workshop.
