Protec Partner with Bumat

Protec, a world leading event solutions provider, headquartered in Dubai, the United Arab Emirates has entered an agreement with Bumat Motion Systems, the Middle East’s leading manufacturer of turntables and revolves.

Protec’s Founder and CEO, Stephen Lakin commented: “Over the last year we have had more and more requests for revolves, particularly in the Motor Industry. We felt that working together with a world leader like Bumat would be the ideal solution to beef up our stocks with a quality product that we could offer our clients. Bumat’s modular system can supply turntables of any size and carrying capacity: made of aluminium or steel, in diameters ranging from 0.1 metres to 55 metres and capable of accommodating load weights from 10kg to 450 metric tons. Our customers can now order turntables out of the standard-system or have them planned and manufactured according to their individual requirements. They can individualise any turntable with regards to carrying capacity, installation height, construction design, mode of operation and serviceability”.

As a market-leader in the region, Protec currently owns one of the world’s largest stocks of audio, video, lighting, scenic & staging, robotics, motion tracking, backline, rigging, SFX and conference solutions equipment. It’s not uncommon for the company to be seen at the heart of some of the most technically challenging shows produced in the Middle East, Africa, Europe, Asia and the Far East.

Bumat’s Managing Director, Timo Burgmeier, added: “Bumat manufactures a highly sophisticated and long lasting product. This is why we only manufacture our turntables in Germany. Different construction parts, protected by patents, ensure a high running smoothness and durability of our turntables. Bumat’s engineering achievements enable our clients to take advantage of all conceivable combinations of complex revolving, rotating, elevating and traversing movements. We use of state-of-the art 3D CAD systems and our own production facilities with CNC machining centres.

“As an owner-run family business, we have been installing systems and managing numerous projects for well-known customers all around the globe since the company was founded in 1948. Dedicated assembly and service teams with many years of experience are at our customers’ disposal wherever they may be: in Germany, Europe or anywhere else in the world. We are very excited and we are sure that our agreement with Protec will be a positive step – both for us as well as the Middle East region,” Burgmeier concluded.
