Nitelites becomes L-Acoustics K1 partner
“The K1 network in the United Kingdom is already top flight,” affirms Paul McMullan, regional sales manager at L-Acoustics. “The fact that Nitelites is creating business opportunities in unique new areas warrants the addition of a new partner to the K1 roster.”
Nitelites’ 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 explains, “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,” Andy adds. “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.”
In fact, Nitelites K1 has already made a difference at We Are FSTVL, where the company has upped the number of stages it is supplying from three to eight for this year’s May bank holiday weekend in Upminster, London.
