Yorkshire firm bounces onto world stage
A Brighouse based audio visual systems integrator are branching out with a new specialist arm; Interactive attractions. Established in 2011, Fired Up Technologies have traditionally installed audio-visual systems into the corporate market, but over the last few years have developed the product range and are now one of the leading resellers and installers for the leisure sector. Gary Holmes, who heads up the leisure sector of the business said “With the huge growth within the family leisure sector it made sense to create a new team with the specialist knowledge of this growing market. Trampoline parks, family entertainment centres and ninja warrior courses all provide huge scope for innovative new products to allow operators to make the most of their facilities”
The new range of products have led to a new arm of the company being formed to specialise in Interactive Attractions and a separate marketing team have managed to secure contracts for the supply and installation of equipment into sites in India, Kuwait, Norway, and Denmark amongst others.
The new technologies either developed directly or imported and distributed by Fired Up Technologies, include a brand new interactive sports hall system from the US; a system which turns a whole sports hall into an interactive sports and gaming environment. Using large format projection, moving-head lights and sensor array the system makes games, sports and PE into a fun interactive team experience.
Other products include interactive trampoline lighting and soundboard systems, interactive laser maze, and from Finland; the world’s first Augmented Climbing Wall. Also coming soon and designed in house and manufactured in the UK will be a fully immersive Interactive Mirror Maze.
Product manager Liam Richardson said “These are exciting times for the company. We are forging relationships with individuals and leisure chains throughout the world, and through expansion over the next few months, we are looking forward to creating new and interesting job roles for local people as well as a number of trainee positions suited to creative individuals.”
