NEP Acquires New Century Productions
January 11, 2008
NEP Broadcasting has acquired the stock of video production company New Century Productions, located in Allentown, Pa.
NEP is one of the major providers of mobile production for television, with nearly 40 trucks in the United States and the United Kingdom. New Century is also a remote video production company with five HD and five SD trucks. Tom Shelburne, one of NEP's founders, helped create New Century in 1984.
New Century will roll a new HD truck, NCP XI, in April, the first collaboration between Mike Mundt of NCP and Howie Naugle of NEP. The unit will be built by the NEP Systems Integration Group. New Century will also go ahead on previous plans to finish a new 20,000-square-foot field shop in Allentown.
NEP brings production trucks, mobile screen trucks and modular LEDs, and a high-end New York television facility.
NEP's résumé includes the Super Bowl, the Academy Awards and a long list of other high-profile sporting and special events.
New Century will continue to operate under its own moniker out of its Allentown offices with the same staff.
