Time for some TLC

It’s that time of year again – the summer holiday!

So as the conference and corporate event world breathes a sigh of relief, it’s time to wind down and get ready to go again in the Autumn! Well not at R&B Group it isn’t!

IMG_0129August is just as busy as other months but it’s a little different to the usual racing around the country with van and trucks full of equipment. All of that racing around can take its toll and our AV kit needs a break too.

In August every single piece of our AV stock receives some TLC. Some items are stripped down and put back together, others just a good clean will do. Every single piece of kit, every single cable that requires a mains supply has to be annually tested for safety and now’s the only time we can do it. But there are literally thousands of items.

CablesOur techs are speedy though and are setting up a military style operation to get though all of this – stopping occasionally for a Solero when the sun is out.

As well as maintaining the kit, it’s time for us to say goodbye to some things that not longer cut the mustard – tech continually improves and we won’t be left behind. As we recycle old stock we’ll be making our usual summer investments in new equipment.

Stand by for further announcements on our new hire stock!

It’s not just the electrical items though, our stage furniture is revamped and polished, our scenery flattage also gets the once over, our workshops are cleaned down and timber is recycled.

There’s our vehicles to MOT, there’s improvements to our warehouse and office space and there’s always a need for a lick of paint here and there.

Wind down? Summer holiday? Not likely!
