“This is the first time Sally Corporation has had a representative dedicated specifically to the Italian market,” says Sally CEO John Wood. He notes that Ermes Technologies Themed Entertainment Division, with its strong background in high tech products and projects, has an established client base and excellent reputation both within the Italian themed entertainment industry and other markets.
Headquartered in Rome, Ermes Technologies, a subsidiary of the Eurolink Systems Group, was founded in 2005. The company provides custom engineering services for the defense, transportation and aerospace industries. Its Themed Entertainment Division was established to bring some of that engineering expertise to the entertainment and attractions field, according to the company’s CEO, Enrico Petrucci, who adds, “We have long admired the animatronics and interactive dark rides produced by Sally Corporation, and we feel that together Ermes and Sally will have great success in this exciting industry.”
