Our journey to slx


In 1979 a friendship was born between Maurice Marshal MBE and David Whitehead, two very different characters but with a shared passion for theatre. They had a determination to put the needs of their customers first and to provide faultless technical services to theatres up and down the UK.

Maurice and David met at the Northcott Theatre in Exeter, where Maurice was the Chief Electrician and David his deputy. The two friends took a decision in November 1979 to become business partners.

Stage Electrics was formed.

Four decades on and although the name may be different our vision at SLX remains the same: to serve our customers as best as we can, deliver quality equipment and services, look after our staff and enjoy everything we do.

We believe that great service, outstanding quality and an understanding of our customers works because customers continue to return to us time after time and many of our new customers come from personal recommendations.

Everything we do centres around our aim, to exceed your expectations and when we do we love to hear all about it and if we don't, please do contact us so we can put things right as quickly as possible.

Maurice and David leave us with treasured memories and tremendous legacies both in their private and professional lives. Their inspiration, passion, encouragement and enthusiasm has left its mark on all that have had the pleasure of knowing them.
