Mark Roberts Motion Control’s Assaff Rawner reflects on 2017 sports projects and progress
Assaff Rawner, CEO of Mark Roberts Motion Control (MRMC) has been reflecting on what he describes as “a year of development, expansion and growth” for the company that has also involved numerous high-profile sports broadcast projects, ranging from FINA World Swimming to World Darts.
In an end-of-year message distributed to customers and friends across the industry, Rawner notes that “we have restructured operations, increased our brand profile, and we continue to ship our robotic products all over the world. As I write, we have shipped 15 large rigs including Bolt High-Speed Cinebots, StudioBots, Milos, Talos, Modula and both Orbital and Orbital XL in the past two months alone.”
From starting out manufacturing products for movie-making, MRMC now has innovative solutions for movies, broadcast, sports, live events and product photography. As markets continue to emerge, says Rawner, “so products will continue to be developed to meet customer needs.”
Major sporting events in 2017 to which MRMC has supplied its camera robotic products range from FINA World Swimming to London 2017 Athletics, Wimbledon, World Darts and various winter sports.
Rawner adds: “For certain, we know exciting and challenging times await MRMC in 2018, but more than ever we are confident with the team, culture and enthusiasm we have; MRMC has never been better placed to meet these times. Amidst all these changes, our primary focus will be to build on the foundations of the business. We will continue to ensure provision of quality products, improved service and innovation in every market sector we operate, heralding a new era which we are confident will have a positive impact on the business, as well as the industry.”
