Tucked away in Pennsylvania’s Amish country are two companies whose technology and equipment power concerts for the likes of Justin Timberlake, Katy Perry and Paul McCartney.
The companies are Clair Brothers and Tait Towers, and between them, they employ 750 people in Lititz, Pa., a town of 9,400, the Wall Street Journal reported.
Tait is also working on non-concert spectacles:
The company is doubling down on business outside the touring industry. Recent jobs include a spinning video display in the end zone at the Dallas Cowboys’ stadium; technology upgrades for the Metropolitan Opera; and Disney shows such as Broadway’s “Aladdin,” which features a Tait-designed flying carpet.
Lititz, we’ll point out, is also the home of indie up-and-comers The Districts.
