Paramount gets a grip on Matthews for equipment

Burbank-based co. to be exclu provider for studio

Increasing its roster of studio clients, Matthews Studio Group on Monday said it inked a strategic national alliance agreement with Paramount Pictures Studio Group, making the company the exclusive production equipment supplier for the studio.

As part of the four-part, first-call deal, Burbank-based Matthews will provide equipment subrentals of lighting and grip equipment for all Paramount Pictures and related television and motion picture productions.

The agreement covers the national geographic regions of Los Angeles, New York, Texas and the eastern United States.

Matthews’ subsidiaries Hollywood Rental Co., Four Star Lighting and ESS Intl. will supply the equipment and services.

Financial details of the agreement were not disclosed.

“This exciting strategic alliance will allow Matthews to further its goal of becoming the entertainment industry’s true single resource for the production industry’s equipment needs,” said Matthews chairman and CEO Carlos D. DeMattos.

Matthews already supplies equipment for Disney’s MGM Studios lot in Orlando and Fox’s Baja, Mexico, facility.
