New York-based Production Resource Group announced that it has acquired Paskal Lighting, a U.S.-based lighting, grip and expendables company.
Founded in 1988, Paskal Lighting has served the motion picture and television industries for over 20 years, with one of the largest inventories of lighting and grip equipment, as well as a fleet of production vehicles capable of accommodating any size production throughout the U.S.
Paskal Lighting will operate under its own brand name, as a full member company of the PRG group, with Evan Green continuing in his role as president. “Paskal will continue to service our long-time loyal customers as we always have, and will now have the additional support and strength of the PRG organization to further achieve our goals,” said Green.
“The acquisition of Paskal Lighting brings us a like-minded company dedicated to customer service and solution-based technologies,” said Scott Hansen, president and CEO, corporate and trade show, TV and film, North America. “Paskal’s expert production teams will add significant depth to our film and television division. Both companies will continue to provide the cutting-edge technology and expert support that today’s filmmakers and broadcasters demand.”
“Evan and his staff at Paskal are highly regarded in the industry and we are very pleased to welcome them to the PRG family,” added Jere Harris, PRG chairman and CEO.
