New Southern California hands-on showroom and lighting facility

SUMOLIGHT, known for SUMOSPACE, SUMOSKY, SUMOMAX and new SUMOLASER lighting, announces the opening of a new US facility adjacent to the burgeoning Santa Clarita Studio film community. The convenient location offers a showroom to test existing and upcoming SUMOLIGHT products. The accessible ground floor space provides filmmakers with a warehouse full of SUMOLIGHT fixtures backed by local support.

Managing the new location is Malcolm Mills, President of SUMOLIGHT USA.  “After the past few years of amazing growth for both SUMOLIGHT and the Santa Clarita region, we felt that this area is a prime location for us. Our products are already working on numerous stages just five minutes away from our office which means we can be ready to expand the lighting order for an existing project or connect with the lighting department for upcoming projects. Plus, it’s an easy drive to Burbank or Hollywood.”

SUMOLIGHT USA doors are open at:  25570 Rye Canyon Rd, Unit D, Santa Clarita, CA 91355.

SUMOLIGHTs are available to demo, with ample space for cameras, dolly and grip. For more information, to arrange a demo, or for info about sales and rental support, contact ma*****@su*******.com, (310) 729-5339.
