Thetford company engineers Robbie Williams stadium shows

Posted on 7 Aug 2013 by The Manufacturer

Thetford engineering company Warren Services played a crucial role in the manufacturing and build process for the stage set of Robbie Williams' sell out European tour this summer.

The company capped off a successful summer by supplying a series of trucks and structures upon which seven sculptures of the former Take That star’s head will be placed, with some of the models over seven metres high.

The sculptures ere the centre piece of Williams’ first solo tour since 2006, which will see 26 dates over three months take place across Europe.

William Bridgman, managing director at Warren Services, said the work carried out at the Thetford site, where it recently purchased an additional 50,000 sq ft of factory, gave his team a real sense of the project’s size.

“We didn’t see the full plans to start with and once we were underway the project was rapidly added to. Because a lot of the build was carried out at our assembly site we were able to see the true scale of the project, which was very exciting for our team.

Mr Bridgman added: “Our client Brilliant Stages, and parent company Prolyte, chose us for this high profile project because of our track record of delivering complex engineering solutions in short time frames. It was a real team effort.”
