Company founder and President, Knut Skjonberg, has developed many staging innovations that helped to revolutionize rock staging:

First on the touring scene with the CHC, Computerized Hoist Control, in 1984.

First with fully programmable servo control system in 1989.

First to offer variable speed control for chain hoists in 1991.

First to debut a load monitoring system for touring in 1993.

First to provide UL Listed equipment on hoist control & power distribution in 1997.

As the company grew through word of mouth from production personnel, staging and
lighting companies and designers, a line of chain hoist control products has been developed and is now the found in most venues and tours.
