MSE’s truck just arrived in Brooklyn, New York, to support the newly formed Arsenal Lighting. Founded by Ben Suarez, formerly of Available Light in Queens, Arsenal’s motto is “Ready to Shoot” for production needs in the New York City and Tri-State Film/Video and Commercial community.
Suarez has put his 14-plus years of production experience on the line by starting Arsenal. Partnering with MSE for all his support needs was a no-brainer. The first thing he did was call MSE’s Eastern Regional Sales Manager Ken Emker. “I’ve known Ken for years,” he says. “When I heard that he’s joined MSE, it seemed like a perfect match. Both Ken and MSE are extremely organized and they back up their products.”
Suarez says that, over the years, one of his biggest challenges was getting a much needed order on time – and filled with the support he ordered. “With MSE I will never have to worry that my order will arrive wrong, or that I’ll get something I didn’t order, or worse, if I order a part for a particular item it won’t fit. I know – whatever I order from MSE it’s going to be the right ‘fit’ for every job. And, when it comes to custom fits – MSE is there for me as well. That’s why Arsenal’s trucks will always be exclusively MSE.”
Suarez’s first truck, a 26-footer, is now packed with MSE C-stands, flags, accessories and a range of grip and electric hardware. And it’s taking on shoots – all across the Tri-State area.
