TOMCAT specializes in the fabrication of aluminum truss, structural components, outdoor structures and custom stages for the entertainment, audiovisual, exhibition and worship industries as well as providing related products such as theatrical chain hoists, custom electric assemblies, lighting products and rigging hardware.
Since its founding in 1987, TOMCAT has embodied the spirit of innovation that was the genesis of the company. With a commitment to service and a reputation of innovative products and solutions of the highest quality, TOMCAT has established itself as a distinguished partner with customers worldwide.
Initially becoming an industry leader for trussing and related items to the touring rock-and-roll industry, TOMCAT soon began to manufacture portable outdoor roof systems. An early success, these structures continue to be a major part of the TOMCAT product line.
TOMCAT has been fortunate to manufacture items for some of the major names in rock-and-roll. Through projects for customers like Robbie Williams, Pink Floyd, The Rolling Stones, U2, Janet Jackson, and many others, TOMCAT has been established as an industry leading solutions provider. Not limited to rock-and-roll, the strong TOMCAT reputation then led the company to manufacture equipment for touring Broadway shows along the lines of Lion King, Mamma Mia, The Producers, and Wicked.
TOMCAT has also been a leader in safety and education. As one of the first ETCP recognized rigging training programs, TOMCAT has conducted classes and seminars since 1993. Additionally, TOMCAT has been a key contributor with the PLASA (formerly ESTA) Technical Standards Program that has authored a wide range of standards to promote safe working practices for the entertainment industry and has been closely involved with the Event Safety Alliance since its inception.
In 2012, TOMCAT became a part of The Milos Group which is comprised of other aluminum truss manufacturers Milos and Litec to provide solutions to customers worldwide and become the words largest aluminum truss manufacturer for the entertainment industry.
