Celebrating 2021, While Ringing in 2022
It’s hard to believe how quickly time flies. It feels like just yesterday we were getting ready to ring in the new year, but suddenly we’re well into February! While we’re already hard at work and setting our sights on the months ahead, we wanted to celebrate some memorable moments from the past year.
In January of 2021, we kicked off the year celebrating our 75th anniversary, but it didn’t stop there. We also launched new and improved product lines and traveled across the country to see our projects in action.
Here are a few of our favorite highlights from 2021.
Participated in the VIRTUAL USITT 2021
No travel? No problem! Last year, USITT went virtual, and so did we!
In March, we covered everything from our Acoustical Shells to Rigging Systems and Motion Controls to Training, Inspection and Maintenance and custom solutions. We met with our customers virtually and had the opportunity to create a virtual booth for USITT.
Seeing is Believing: Wenger | J.R. Clancy Projects in the Field
Nothing is more satisfying than seeing a completed project, and we had the pleasure of seeing several in 2021. From updated universities to completely customized, one-of-a-kind new performance spaces, our team traveled from coast to coast so you could see them from the comfort of your chair.
Here are the stops we made along the way:
- University of North Alabama (Florence, Alabama)
- University of Montevallo (Montevallo, Alabama)
- New Brunswick Performing Arts Center (New Brunswick, New Jersey)
- Belmont University (Nashville, Tennessee)
- M. Terrell High School (Fort Worth, Texas)
- Jefferson High School (Sioux Falls, South Dakota)
- Villanova University (Villanova, Pennsylvania)

New Products, New Launches!
We’ve spent the past 75 years proudly supporting music education, performing arts and athletics. Through it all, we’ve listened to our customers to better understand their unique needs, which is how we’ve continued creating products the industry has loved for all these years.
In 2021, we were thrilled to launch our latest line of new and improved products:
- R. Clancy PowerLift® and PowerLite™ Hoists
- R. Clancy Vantis™ Wall Controller
- Wenger | J.R. Clancy Remote Lighting Service & Support
All of these solutions come with enhanced capabilities and technologies, yet are designed with safety, reliability and durability in mind.
A Return to LDI in Las Vegas
We ended 2021 on a high note – in person at LDI! It was exhilarating holding live demonstrations again, especially for our new product launches. But, most of all, we appreciated the opportunity to reconnect with so many familiar faces.
Work is well underway for another great year, and we look forward to sharing our newest projects and innovations in the days to come. Look for us at USITT March 2-5, in Baltimore at Booth #221!
