The Client:

JM-Pipe of Livingston, New Jersey, the world’s largest plastic pipe manufacturer, and a subsidiary of the Formosa Plastics Group, a multi-billion dollar conglomerate, based in Taiwan.

The Situation:

JM-Pipe contracted with Media Magic to assess and manage all of the audio-visual reinforcement and live event, multi-camera broadcast video production needs for a spectacular 2-day, 3 location Grand Opening event, attended by dignitaries from around the world. The mid-summer event heralded the opening of the world’s largest, state-of-the-art composite door manufacturing facility, located in northeastern Ohio, and owned by their subsidiary, PlastPro2000.

The Strategy:

The Media Magic team worked closely, for several weeks, with representatives from PlastPro2000, Growth Partnership for Ashtabula County and the technical team from Hughie’s Audio-Visual of Cleveland, to assess the exact equipment, staging and crew needs and acquire and set-up what was needed, on time, and in perfect working order, for the multiple events. Media Magic assembled a hand-picked “Dream Team” of 15 A/V and video production specialists into three main teams: two separate teams to handle the A/V needs at both Grand Opening ceremony locations;  the third, a camera crew to handle the 2-day video production at all three venues. 

The Result:

Through the professionalism and tireless efforts of all 15 Media Magic teammates, along with the hard work and attention to detail provided by the Hughie’s A/V team, the Grand Opening event went  very smoothly and was a technical success. Guests were treated to outstanding sound and visuals, free of glitches, at all venues. Our video production crews captured forever the grandeur and excitement of this once-in-a-lifetime celebration for J-M Pipe and Plastpro2000.
