CES Power, a provider of mobile power generation backed by Allied Industrial Partners, has acquired Brickworks, a provider of smart mapping software, geographic information system (GIS) services, and ‘zero-emissions’ infrastructure within the entertainment industry.
Brickworks develops site plans and designs services for music festivals, live events, and related projects. The company’s proprietary software turns site plans into interactive smart maps, allowing telemetry and location data to be used for site operations and providing real-time data to event planners. The deal will expand CES’ services by adding GIS and smart mapping services to assist customers with achieving their goals. Sam Simmons, CEO of Brickworks, will join CES as chief technology officer.
“The addition of Brickworks will enhance our ability to offer tech-enabled services to our customers while assisting them with tracking and monitoring emissions in order to reduce their carbon footprint and achieve their sustainability goals,” says Greg Landa, CEO of CES Power. “Brickworks’ proprietary software will also allow us to apply real-time telematics to our power and HVAC assets, enhance our onsite capabilities and provide customers with more real-time visibility into event operations.”
