Founded in 1978 by Michael Tait, TAIT made its name in rock ‘n’ roll, cementing its status as one of the most innovative suppliers of touring staging, scenic, and automation over the following decades. We’ve delivered a host of groundbreaking live events, including U2’s 360° tour beamed from outer space and Metallica’s Freeze ‘Em All show in Antarctica.

Over the years, we’ve branched out into live experience production for theaters, cruise ships, and theme parks, delivering projects around the world thanks to our global reach in North America, Europe, Asia, and the Middle East.

In 2014, our one-of-a-kind production community Rock Lititz was born: a one-stop shop for live experience collaboration, with design, manufacturing, engineering, and rehearsal spaces all under one roof. TAIT is a cornerstone Rock Lititz community member.

We’ve been scaling globally since 2012, welcoming the best in the business into the TAIT Group. Most recently, we’ve brought on four new companies.
