The acquisition will strengthen Strata’s in-house AV production, fabrication, and production management capabilities, broadening its offer and increasing its team of talented event professionals, including skilled production managers, technicians, designers and fabricators.
Simon Hambley, CEO of Strata, said: “We have worked alongside On Event Production Co. for several years and know the team well. When the opportunity to acquire the company came along it was an easy decision for us to make, offering us the chance to work together on a more strategic level. We know how each other thinks and share the same great work ethos and values. It was clear that our respective businesses are aligned perfectly both culturally and professionally.”
On Event Production Co. has experience in corporate conferences, brand activation, and exhibition markets and has delivered work for clients including Toyota, Aldemore Bank & NHS England. All the company’s employees will continue to be employed by On with On Event Production Co. now a division of Strata Group.
