Liverpool-based Adlib has opened an office in Glasgow after an increase in demand for its services in Scotland.

The technical production, lighting, sound and AV specialist says the new office will also support a number of new contracts won by its installations and sales division.

Graham Cochrane, who has worked as a production manager for the T In The Park festival and the 2014 Glasgow Commonwealth Games, will head up the new base.

Adlib MD Andy Dockerty said: “It made complete sense on all fronts to set up a Scottish office, especially with the recent expansion of our work there.

“However, the affinity with Scotland is not just a new or passing trend for Adlib, our connections go back at least 20 years and include working with some of the finest and most popular Scottish bands and musicians including Del Amitri, GUN and Texas.

“Graham is extremely well respected on the touring and festival scenes in Scotland, his knowledge and experience is invaluable and we’re very fortunate to have someone of his calibre join our team.”

Adlib has recently won the design and installation tenders to supply audio for two “high profile” Glasgow restaurants in early 2015, and will also be installing new technical infrastructure and systems at two Scottish churches.
