Impact Production Services (IPS) said it has undergone a management restructure to support its growing list of clients and projects.

Karl Saunders (pictured right) has taken on the role of managing director, while owner James Mason (left) has become key account director at the company which provides technical production and venue services along with staging and structures hire.

The IPS senior management team will be further supported by Andy Marshall (logistics and facilities), Gilles Quentel (warehouse operations), Ian Brown (head of technical) and Tom Warden (H&S and marketing).

Ryan Bellamy is now continuing to support Quentel in his role as assistant warehouse manager, while head of lighting Steven Moseley has recently taken on the additional role of asset manager for the company.

Saunders, who has been running IPS alongside Mason for the last seven years, said, “I am delighted to be formally taking on this role, and proud to lead our respected multi-skilled team, delivering quality equipment and technical support to the live events industry.”

IPS said the new year is already looking positive for the company, with several staging and structures dates already confirmed, as well as continuing technical production projects and sustained growth in the trade equipment hire side of the business.

Mason said, “It is great to be busy, but it is also important to address industry issues like staff shortages whilst remaining competitive and on top of the latest industry trends and sustainability best practice” he continues, explaining that “by working closely with the management team, we will be able to better provide a reliable service and maintain our valued customer and industry relationships”

IPS has 50 full-time employees based mainly from its Milton Keynes premises and supports events all over the UK and further afield. The company has staging, rigging, lighting, video, sound and power equipment available to hire, alongside a range of staging and structure solutions with outdoor roof structures from Prolyte and Eurotruss, supported with Layher Event System components.
