A strategic initiative from Solotech to expand its presence in the United States.
NASHVILLE, Tenn., (March 22, 2021) – Following the February 23 release, Solotech announced today the completion of the acquisition of Nashville-based Morris Light & Sound and its systems integration division, InteRise. With this acquisition, Solotech, expands its activities in the United States and solidifies its presence in the Nashville region by joining forces with the talented live productions and systems integrations teams Morris.
Martin Tremblay, President and CEO, Solotech, shares why this acquisition is highly strategic: “Our joint capabilities and resources enable us to significantly strengthen our footprint in the USA, and much more in Nashville, to the benefit of all our clients.

We continue to build based on long-term relationships and delivery excellence to propel our overall footprint locally, nationally and globally.”
This step will enable Solotech to expand its current systems integration experts and resources in the area and across the United states, as they already design, develop and integrate some of the most advanced systems in a variety of venues, in numerous verticals.
Mickey Curbishley, President, Live Productions Division, US and UK, Solotech, and Philip Giffard, President, Sales and Systems Integration Division, Solotech, will oversee a strong leadership in place in Nashville to manage all operational aspects and ensure a smooth and efficient transition. “The Morris teams are dynamic, they hold an innovative vision and together we will successfully put forward our best practices, ideas and service offerings.
