When you look at the industry in Australia you come to realise that it is not big a market. We have a smallish population with vast distances between the population centres. Yet we are lucky that we have some very dedicated companies that design, manufacture and sell gear into our market. Companies like Jands, Enttec, LSC, ARX to name a few. These guys make some of the iconic theatre equipment in Australia and supply to the rest of the world. This proves that we are up there with the rest of the world. These guys are also accessible to all of their customers and are happy to listen to the consumer. When you think that they ae competing with some large oversea companies we have every reason to be proud of the made in Australia product that is in many theatres across Australia. You just need to see what gear that they offer for sale and check the specifications to realise that they are up there with best, if not better. You will see their equipment in a majority of theatres, schools and halls around the country. Some of it will be old but I bet most of it is still working and working well. So there maybe foreign brands like GrandMA, ETC, Strand but let us continue supporting the innovation of our local industry. The gear is made for us by us. Be proud to us it, I am.
