10 Out Of 10, a production and hire company, has announced the celebration of its 30 years in business.
The company was formed in 1989 by Paul Need (pictured), RADA graduate and tutor. Need’s central idea for the company was to offer ten types of services to the entertainment industry.
10 Out Of 10 now works for a wide range of industries such as live events, conferences, exhibitions, theatres, film and television.
The company also has an online store, which covers lighting and sound equipment, rigging equipment, staging consumables and more.
However, it still aims to enhance its event production by providing full production support to events across the UK.
It has recently acquired Drax Lighting, the supplier of event and lighting equipment. This has increased the 10 Out Of 10’s inventory and its presence outside of the capital, as Drax’s Lighting office is located in Dunstable.
Need said: “If someone wants to buy a microphone, we’ll ask what kind of voice they have to work out if it’s right for them. We’d rather lose the sale than sell someone the wrong equipment.
“Our ethos is that we aim to do the right job at the right price, fairly. If we have to turn it down because we don’t think that what the customer is asking for is right, then we will. As the company continues to grow that ethos will always be at the heart of what we do.”
