MANCHESTER-BASED audio specialist STS Touring Productions, whose clients include Anthrax, Midge Ure and Jack & Jack , plans further expansion over the next 12 months, having already opened an office in Germany.

The company, which works with manufacturers such as L-Acoustics and DiGiCo, says he is seeing an increase in demand for spot hire of individual PA systems, control desks, in-ear-monitor systems and other items, as opposed to complete touring packages.

“We’re planning significant investment,” says STS director Pete Dutton. “Our satellite office and warehouse in Leipzig is already provoking massive interest for us. It gives us the advantage of having equipment in Europe ready to use.

“[new division] STS Europe will run alongside STS UK and gives us the advantage of having equipment on the mainland, ready to use.”

The expansion allows the company to offer live music touring clients a more co-ordinated Europe-wide service, he says.
