Staging Rentals & Construction to close Sydney business

Staging Rentals & Construction have announced they are closing the Sydney branch of the business from April.

“This is a heartfelt decision which has been made after a lot of consideration,” said founder Meri Took, who has owned the business for 30 years alongside David Comer.

“Due to a range of factors, David and I have decided that now is the time for us begin the next chapter.”

The staging and event production company is well known for building large-scale sets and props for the Opera, exhibitions and corporate events.

“SRC Melbourne will continue to operate and provide full custom-construction services and our full line of rental products; it is business as usual there and branch manager Rod Sultana will continue at the helm.

“David and I will continue to own SRC, and as always, we welcome the opportunity to continue to support our industry friends and their events in any way we can.

“We would like to thank the enormous army of people who have worked at SRC Sydney over 30 years, many who have gone on to be strong ambassadors for our industry. We also thank our incredible band of clients and partners, whose passion for events has kept us busy for 30 years.

“It has been quite a ride, I’m extremely proud of the work we have done and the relationships we have forged. And, we are also looking forward to a change of pace.”
