Syncrolite, LLC and Ballantyne Strong Inc. announced that the assets associated with Ballantyne Strong’s lighting business have been sold to Syncrolite.  Effective Dec. 21, 2015 Syncrolite has assumed all operations, sales, and support associated with Ballantyne Strong, including the company’s Super Trouper followspots.

The Super Trouper and Gladiator products will now be manufactured at Syncrolite’s headquarters along with the Skytracker family of outdoor advertising and architectural lighting products. Strong product support and repairs will be provided by Syncrolite’s team of Xenon lighting experts while parts and replacement lamps will be shipped from their own facility in Dallas, TX.

“The Strong name is familiar to everyone in the entertainment lighting industry and Syncrolite is proud to be in a position to carry that tradition forward and take Strong lighting products to the next level,” says Jerry Trojan, CEO of Syncrolite.  “Our deep knowledge of Xenon lighting systems and our commitment to customer service makes this move a win-win for Syncrolite and all past and future Strong lighting customers”, continued Trojan.

Paul Rabinovitz, director of product sales and marketing adds, “This marks a coming home for me as I was Vice President of Lighting at Ballantyne Strong for almost ten years.  I’m looking forward to reconnecting with my many friends and customers in the follow-spot world.  I see great things ahead for both the Strong lighting products and customers.”
