Bucharest, Romania (March 22, 2007)--The Paradigma Group hosted the official opening of its new headquarters on March 8, based in Bucharest, as the final part of a special Romanian/Dutch joint venture in the entertainment technology market. His Excellency Dhr. J. Werner, Dutch Ambassador to Romania, was guest of honor at the opening ceremony.
The new purpose-built, 3,500-square-meter (approx. 37,670 square feet) headquarters, just a few miles from Bucharest's Otopeni International Airport, is divided into offices and warehouses. The space enables the Paradigma Group to maintain large rental stocks of audio, lighting, video and staging equipment, to provide professional servicing and training facilities, as well as housing the group's sales company, including a showroom and maintenance department.
Paradigma Group is a joint venture between Ampco Flashlight Holding BV of Holland and AEI Broadcast Concept, one of the leading facilities companies in Romania, which was announced in April 2006 at the Pro Light + Sound Show in Frankfurt.
