PRODUCTION RESOURCE GROUP, L.L.C.

You can't produce without the proper resources. And Production Resource Group (PRG) is a proper provider. The company offers lighting, audio, scenery, video, and labor services for entertainment entities in markets such as corporate and special events, tradeshow, theater, concert touring, television and film production, retail, and themed attraction. PRG has more than 30 offices located in North America, Europe, Africa, and Asia. The company's clients and past projects include Aerosmith, Pearl Jam, and Celebrity Poker Showdown. PRG was founded in 1982 by chairman and CEO Jere Harris, who was formerly active in Broadway production management.

PRG has grown to its current size and reach through a steady stream of acquisitions. In 2011 it purchased Pow! Pix, a company that rents post-production equipment and services and provides on-site editing for live events and other broadcasts. Pow! Pix has worked on productions such as The Daily Show, The Colbert Report, the Olympics, and the Super Bowl. PRG used the deal to form its Media Services Group. Earlier that year PRG increased its presence in Europe when it bought First Events BVBA, an entertainment technology company with operations in Belgium, the Netherlands, and Spain.

In 2010 PRG added to its holdings with two key acquisitions. It purchased Innovative Event Production to gain a presence in the Washington, DC market and surrounding area, and Davis Audio Visual, which bolsters its corporate and tradeshow services division and enhance its presence in the Denver market. PRG expanded internationally the previous year with the acquisition of PROCON, an entertainment technology company headquartered in Germany with offices in Belgium, France, Switzerland, China, and South Africa. The PROCON deal gave PRG a stronger global presence, adding customers in major markets and geographic locations worldwide. 

In prior years, the company increased its share of the corporate events market with the 2008 acquisitions of High-Tech Rentals and UK-based Essential Lighting, as well as the 2007 acquisition of Chicago-based High Performance Images (HPI).
