Melbourne, 29/08/2023 – ONEstage, a leading provider of event and stage production solutions, has recently undergone a period of reflection and analysis, resulting in a strategic decision to realign its focus on key products that best serve its core goal. As part of this shift, the company has temporarily put several product lines on hold until manufacturing capabilities can be scaled to meet demand.

Effective immediately, the production and sales of the following products will be limited to available stock:

  • All single and three-phase power cables
  • All multi-pin audio and power cables
  • All data and Ethercon cables
  • All headers and break in/out cables
  • All RJ4P Variants
  • All SSD Variants
  • All stand-alone PCB solutions
  • All Audio splits.

The decision to streamline production is aimed at ensuring customers receive the high-quality products they deserve while allowing for strategic growth and scaling of operations. ONEstage remains committed to supporting customers who have purchased products through their former distribution partner, Event Communications Australia, during the specified warranty period.

In conjunction with this strategic shift, ONEstage is pleased to announce a new exclusive sales partnership with CMI Music and Audio for Australia and New Zealand. With a proven track record of delivering world-class solutions and exceptional customer service, CMI Music and Audio brings a wealth of experience and expertise to the table.
