Preworks added as an ETC dealer for Austria

Preworks Team

ETC has appointed Preworks as a dealer for its complete product portfolio – including lighting control consoles, fixtures and lighting systems – in Austria. "As Preworks has been successfully marketing High End Systems products since 2007, working with ETC is a logical progression,” says Andreas Reinbacher, CEO of Preworks. “With this extended range of products, we can now optimally meet all the market requirements. We look forward to a positive and fruitful partnership.”

Klaus Althoff, sales manager for ETC GmbH adds: "ETC shares the Preworks company philosophy: close customer contact, good service and reliable performance. That's why Preworks is an ideal partner for us."

Andreas Reinbacher founded Preworks in St Stefan ob Stainz, Austria, in September 2006. The company established itself as a visualisation and pre-programming studio, and a specialist training centre for lighting control consoles. A year later, it became a distributor of professional lighting systems – including the products of the US-based moving light and lighting controls manufacturer High End Systems, now part of ETC. Preworks has since expanded further, with a relocation to a larger facility in Stainz in 2012, and the launch of a German branch near Frankfurt am Main in 2016.

Today, the Preworks team comprises around ten employees, led by Reinbacher. The company has been instrumental in several high-profile projects, including the Amadeus Austrian Music Awards, the 2017 Andreas Gabalier concert at the Munich Olympic Stadium, and the flagship of AIDA cruises, the AIDAprima cruise ship.
