May marked a milestone for TMB when it shipped its 100th ProPower Rack Panel Distribution (RPD) System. The centennial system was sold to Ed & Ted's Excellent Lighting, Inc. in support of an intensive summer of concert and corporate events including the Eminem North American tour.

We've taken input from everyone...and integrated their ideas into a versatile system that can support all levels of the industry."
