CHARLOTTE, NORTH CAROLINA – Bandit Lites, the world’s leader in entertainment lighting, recently opened up its newest office in Charlotte, North Carolina, with the office focusing primarily on fixed installation projects and bringing Bandit’s meticulous attention to detail to administering systems that meets its clients’ exact lighting needs.

“Because of our proximity to North Carolina, we had already done a number of projects in the area, so the opening of our office simply makes it easier to continue those relationship and support those projects,” explained Chris Barbee, Bandit’s National Director of Sales.

Senior System Integrator Andrew Fisher, who joined the Bandit Lites sales team in 2013, brings his extensive knowledge of both lighting design and system installations to the growing Charlotte market. Bandit also recently hired Emily Eudy as the Installation Project Manager. Eudy’s background in theatre lighting design and her decade in the industry working at Barbizon and Rosco LA makes her an invaluable addition to the team, where she will be assisting with the creation and management of sales and installation projects.

“Emily joins us with a number of years in the industry, both from dealer and manufacturer perspective,” said Barbee. “She has a great skillset to come in and hit the ground running for us and help build that business in North Carolina.”

"Through my years in the lighting industry, I have always had a deep respect for Bandit," said Eudy. "It is great to be joining a team that prides itself on quality and integration, but the thrill of bringing Bandit to a new market really adds to the excitement."

Bandit’s illustrious history in both concert lighting and installations makes the company a trusted source for installing lighting at music and performance establishments, churches, theaters, museums and public spaces. The Charlotte office has already accomplished numerous projects including installations of schools, churches and venues.

Bandit Chair Michael T. Strickland stated, “Bandit is proud to have two such fine people as Andrew and Emily on board and running our newest office. They have already accomplished a lot in the short time since opening, and we know there is much, much more to come. We are now able to deliver the Bandit Standard of valued added customer care to a wider range of clients. Bandit has worked in the eastern seaboard area for years, but now we have people on the ground and our level of attention to detail is much greater!”
