Rosco Laboratories, Inc. announced today that it has signed an agreement to acquire the assets of Los Angeles-based GAM Products Inc. The addition of GAM’s widely regarded products such as GAMColor, GAM Patterns, Blackwrap™ and TwinSpin, among others, will dramatically expand the creative solutions Rosco offers to designers, technicians and artists.
For more than 35 years, GAM has provided high quality lighting products to the theatre and film community. Rosco will continue to market and promote them worldwide through its extensive global distribution network. “For existing and loyal GAM customers, it will be business as usual with GAM’s entire catalog of products available through Rosco. But we’re especially looking forward to leveraging our world class dealer network to expose these excellent products to new clientele,” said Mark Engel, CEO of Rosco.
GAM was founded in 1975 by Joe Tawil and has pioneered a range of tools now considered to be indispensible to generations of lighting professionals. “Stan was the first person I called when I decided it was time for me to exit the business. It was important to me to find a company with the same reputation for excellent service that GAM’s customers expect. Rosco was the natural choice and I’m excited by the prospect that GAM products will now be seen by an even larger audience.”
Stan Miller, Chairman of Rosco Laboratories, adds, “I’ve known and respected Joe and his company since the beginning. I’m proud that he trusts Rosco to continue his brand and legacy. GAM’s business will complement Rosco’s perfectly and the customer will now have an even larger selection of tools from which to choose. We look forward to the opportunity.”
Founded in 1910, Rosco Laboratories provides unique and effective solutions to the global community of lighting professionals in entertainment, film, architecture and photography. With 13 offices and over 600 distributors, Rosco products are available virtually anywhere in the world.
