LOUISVILLE, KY — ZFX Flying Effects and Las Vegas-based Stage Technologies have announced a strategic alliance to offer automated solutions for productions that require complex flying sequences. ZFX will add Stage Technologies’ hoists and control systems to its roster of complete flying services. ZFX also named Joe Champelli, who has considerable experience in automation and machinery design, as its general manager.

“Automation provides greater precision and versatility to the artistic flying effects for which ZFX is already known,” said Champelli. “The blend of our artistic experience and Stage Tech’s reputation and reliability in motion controlled flying equipment makes an ideal union.”

The strategic alliance is expected to give ZFX the ability to expand from single-point and travel-compensated flying to automated flying effects that include integrated pendulum and multi-point 3-dimensional flying with higher speeds, repeatability and consistency.

“We are absolutely delighted to be able to work with the team at ZFX, whose experience and reputation we have known for many years,” said Nikki Scott commercial director of Stage Technologies. “Our companies share similar values and both believe in supplying systems and service which exceed our customers’ expectations. The range of equipment and expertise now available from ZFX as a result of this alliance with Stage Technologies provides end-users a complete range of flying effects.”

ZFX will continue to offer the company’s tried-and-true, custom harnesses, manual equipment, track, truss and other system components as well as standard aerial hoists. Automation now rounds out the company’s capabilities, making ZFX a one-stop shop for live flying effects.
