4Wall Entertainment has completed the acquisition of HSL Group.
The deal, which was agreed in principle earlier this month, means HSL’s 165,000 sq. ft. facility in Blackburn is now being rebranded as 4Wall UK, creating the first international base for the US equipment and services provider.
4Wall UK will be comprised of the former HSL sales team and staff, with former HSL MD Simon Stuart leading the sales team and assuming the role of VP of business development.
Stuart comments: “With the deal completed, we are officially part of the 4Wall family, ensuring long-term stability of our location. We couldn’t be happier to join this amazing organization and thank our friends from across the pond for the opportunity.”
Wes Bailey, 4Wall COO, adds: “The 4Wall UK team hasn’t skipped a beat since the announcement was made two weeks ago which perfectly exemplifies why this was the right time for 4Wall to expand into the international market. There is a strong group in place that will help us introduce the 4Wall brand to the UK in a positive way.”
4Wall and HSL have previously worked together on concert touring acts travelling between the two countries, creating a natural partnership between key employees and even customers that will be strengthened moving forward. Having a true 4Wall location overseas will allow the company to better serve tours and events scheduled to make US and UK stops.
