Now in its 21st year, eps has offices in Germany, Denmark, Italy, Poland and Switzerland as well as Australia, Brazil and the U.S.

Anthony Sinclair will manage the UK operation, drawing on more than 15 years of experience working in the event industry.

“He will be supported by Nigel Gilbert, who has worked “on the UK’s most iconic sporting events for the last ten years,” the announcement states. eps used to operate in the UK through a partnership agreement with Eve Trakway, when it was still owned by Rick Barnett and Chris Lowton.

“We have now joined with them again to form our UK operation,” said eps group’s managing director Okan Tombulca.

“We have worked with many UK promoters and organizations worldwide and I am delighted that we can now provide those same services direct.”

Services that include “roadway, fencing and barrier systems, including heavy duty trackway, drivable plastic systems, front of stage barriers, pedestrian pathways and security fencing systems as well as temporary lighting and pitch coverings.”

Sinclair, who has worked on Glastonbury as well as the Olympic Games in London and Rio de Janeiro in the past, said “there are many equipment providers in the UK but we understand that it is service that is the most important element of any project and to ensure we always delight our customers, is critical. We promise, we deliver. It’s how the eps group was built.”
