ABOUT HAYDEN PRODUCTION SERVICES
At Hayden Production Services, we have collectively logged decades working on stages, sets, cruise ships and at corporate events designing, providing and executing lighting for all manner of clients. Every last member of our team has spent time working in the same capacity as the clients we now serve. We understand this business. We know first hand what it takes to produce quality lighting projects at every level and know how it feels when the shop forgets to send the truss bolts. That’s why over the last 12 years, the company has grown into one of the most sophisticated and confident, yet approachable group of experts in the field. At Hayden, we meet every project with professionalism, commitment, unmatched expertise, humor and warmth. Ask us anything and you just may be delighted and surprised by our response.
In the mid 90’s, Andrew Martini, having difficulty finding available and affordable gear for his design projects, began investing his own money in quality lighting equipment. As the pile of equipment in his parent’s garage grew and word spread to similarly challenged colleagues, the idea for Hayden began to take shape. Driven by a passion for bringing new technologies into theater lighting, Andrew almost immediately built a reputation for a whatever-it-takes attitude, problem solving, follow-through and utmost professionalism. It’s in that spirit he and partner Jason Marsh have built the company to be one of the region’s most respected. Hayden is committed to genuine, hands-on service, helping designers, architects, consultants and event planners thoughtfully address the lighting issues they face on a daily basis.
