The Stagemaker Controller
The Stagemaker Compact range of chain motors is a new product to Australia with Group Technologies taking on the agency
late in 2003. As mentioned above, Stagemaker was established to develop products specifically for the entertainment industry
under the parent company Verlinde, a massive European company based in France and employer of over 5000 personnel worldwide.
Typically, they are in the crane, hoist, and lift-anything business, and they take that role very seriously.

So why did Harry’s decide on the Verlinde Stagemaker Compact? “One reason was safety,” said Harry’s
Simon Finlayson, General Manager – Lighting, AV, Rigging Division. “That and the fact that Harry’s always
look for the best and most innovative products, and Stagemaker upped the ante with its compact size, double-braking (2 brakes
instead of one), an IP-56 rating which means they are more weather resistant than any of the competition, and finally, they’re
the quietest hoist on the market, suiting our requirements perfectly”.
