Temporary power specialist Power Logistics has appointed a European director to lead its newly opened office in Maastricht, Netherlands.

It said that as part of the next phase of the company’s plans for expansion, experienced international sales and marketing professional Patrick Elissen will lead its EMEA operation from the centrally located office. The news follows the company’s announcement in November that it had established a permanent base in Cork, Ireland.

Elissen (pictured right) said, “Power Logistics’ reputation in the provision of temporary event power is beyond impressive for a business of its size. Its commitment and market-leading approach to driving forward sustainable solutions is very exciting and something that I believe there is a real need for both within mainland Europe and the wider worldwide market.”

“The prospect of implementing energy management solutions and integrating technology that positively impact on an event’s carbon footprint whilst focussing on cost efficiencies will be an attractive proposition for organisers, promoters and production companies.”

Power Logistics founder and director Pete Wills (pictured left) said, “We’ve identified that having dedicated offices within the EU was essential to our planned expansion and adding someone of Patrick’s calibre to the team is another step towards achieving our goals. Maastricht couldn’t be a better location.   It’s perfectly positioned to target event projects across the EMEA region and beyond.”

Power Logistics regularly provides temporary power solutions to events including: The Grand National, British Summer Time Hyde Park, Cheltenham Festival, Extreme E, London Marathon, Winter Wonderland, Queen & Adam Lambert Tours, Elton John Tours, Epsom Derby and Boomtown. It has also been contracted to events such as Platinum Jubilee, Commonwealth Games and Olympic Ceremonies
