Pearce Hire, the Peterborough based power supply company and power supply partner to the East of England Arena has been named the industry’s Favourite Power Supply Company at the TPi Awards held at Battersea Evolution, London in front of a 1,700 strong ‘who’s who’ of the live event industry.

Hosted by comedian Russell Kane the glittering awards ceremony recognises those companies and individuals who have excelled in the production of live events and whose hard work delivers some of the outstanding live performances across the UK.

Says Shaun Pearce, MD and founder of Pearce Hire. “The TPi Awards are hugely prestigious. For us, at Pearce Hire, it is the highest industry accolade we can achieve. I’ve been waiting patiently for this recognition and it really is a milestone award for us. Credit must go to the whole team, they thoroughly deserved to celebrate into the early hours at the awards. They are incredibly loyal and have demonstrated how hard graft and dedication to the company and our clients is worthwhile! Not least having to put up with me for many years!”

Pearce Hire is well-known in the Peterborough area, with over 27 full-time employees and a team of freelancer personnel who the company calls upon during the busy summer festival and outdoor event season.

Jason Lunn, venue director of the East of England Arena and Events Centre commented, “We could not be more pleased for Shaun and all the team at Pearce Hire, the TPI Awards are the apogee within the event production industry, and I am both delighted and proud to have worked with Shaun and Pearce Hire since their inception, they are a key part of the greater team that make the East of England Arena such an amazing venue.”
