Showers on the Run acquired by Events Crew

Events Crew are pleased to announce that they have recently acquired local Somerset business Showers on the Run. This will be adding to their highly successful diverse portfolio.

Showers on the Run was formed in 2008 by Mike and Joanne Pearce and the business has grown steadily over the years providing an outstanding shower solution to festivals and other events throughout the country. The family run business with its distinctive trailers is recognised by festival goers everywhere.

Brent Mitchell owner of Events Crew comments: “We are pleased to have acquired Showers on the Run and look forward to expanding on the work done by the Pearce family. We were impressed by their dedication and ingenuity and look forward to continuing their legacy in the future.”

Joanne of Showers on the Run commented “Following a year off due to the COVID-19 pandemic I have made the tough decision to retire from Showers on the Run and sell the business. Events Crew will be honouring all our current bookings for 2021. This is very exciting news for Showers on the Run as Events Crew are planning to expand and create new shower trailers for 2022 and beyond.”

Brent continues. “We were really impressed with the high quality of the trailers and will be expanding with some more purpose-built units very soon. This will allow us to support more events and festivals than before in addition to our current infrastructure offerings.”

“The events market has suffered enormously over the past 18 months; we have continued working by expanding other sectors of the business into new areas. This has allowed us to continually invest in new equipment and training for the staff as well as the purchase of this business.”

“We had already outlined long term plans to develop the business into other areas prior to the pandemic.  It was our plan to do so over several years but the last year has sped up the process to enable us to focus on expansion sooner. We are excited for the future with all elements of our business, especially now that events are finally returning.”

To support this acquisition, we have taken on an additional workshop facility which will be used for maintenance and the build of the new trailers. At the beginning of the 2021 Events Crew started a fabrication division to work alongside the existing business with the ability to offer clients a new service to solve problems and innovate existing products that we offer.   This will be very complementary and support the conversion of the new trailers.
