DeLong Rigging Solutions: A Business Born During the Pandemic
October 30, 2020
Today we’re on the line with father-and-son duo John and Tyler DeLong of DeLong Rigging Solutions.
Tyler and John are both ETCP certified Riggers who have extensive experience working in the live entertainment industry. Their company, DeLong Rigging Solutions, is a product of a great idea, a widespread industry need, and the pandemic. Tyler, like many other individuals in the entertainment industry, found himself suddenly without employment in the spring of 2020 due to Covid-19.
Through his searches for the next project, he had the realization that there was a need in the entertainment industry for qualified and experienced rigging experts to inspect rigging systems and advise on best practices. Thus he started A Man, A Jeep, No Real Plan LLC to investigate this niche.
Very quickly he realized that this need was larger than what he originally thought and he recruited his father, John DeLong as a partner and DeLong Rigging Solutions was born. Let’s welcome Tyler and John.
