Newcastle-based Nitelites has become the latest certified L-Acoustics K1 partner, with the UK rental company having recently taken delivery of a full K1 system.
Nitelites – which was founded in 1983 – plans, designs and delivers events both in the UK and around Europe, while the company says this latest investment in K1 underlines its continued commitment to steady expansion.
The firm's new K1 system, which comprises 48 K1, 24 K1-SB and 24 x KS28, compliments its existing stock of K2, KARA, SB28 and ARCS II cabinets and LA12X amplified controllers with LA-RAK II.
Jochen Frohn, director for business development at L-Acoustics explained: “The Nitelites team have already shown their expertise and success, deploying L-Acoustics K2 systems for prestigious events. As their expertise and client base grew, they were getting requests for a stadium sized PA. Nitelites has consistently impressed us with their technical proficiency and commercial strategy, and we are happy to have Nitelites as part of our K1 network of partners.”
“We’re very well known for our concert touring business,” added Nitelites’ Andy Magee. “But we also work on sporting events such as the Great North Run, where, overnight, we fly a mile of line array into the centre of Newcastle. Likewise, we provide sound to big art installations and an increasing number of bespoke touring solutions, such as a 6.1 system for 10,000 people we supplied for the Lumier Festival in Durham. Increasing our offering of L-Acoustics with K1 means we are able to expand all areas our business further and we’re looking forward to working with the K1 network in the UK.”
Nitelites K1 has already made a difference at We Are FSTVL, where the company upped the number of stages it supplied from three to eight for this year’s May bank holiday weekend in Upminster, London.
