From A Humble Beginning
Manny Inumerable, a civil engineer, graduated from the UST College of Engineering in 1975. He was one of the founders and later became president of the UST Engineering Creative Society, an inventors club that harnesses the creativity of an individual. He learned his craft in structural and formworks design by working with different companies from 1976 to 1986. Soon after the Philippines’ EDSA I Revolution in 1986, he left a construction company and started his own. With a vision of making the small company grow big, he has now revolutionized the Philippine entertainment industry.
With a background in structural engineering and construction, Manny ventured on a business that never existed in his country nearly two decades ago. He rented equipment from construction companies and built the stages for the concerts of Martin Neivera, Gary Valenciano, The APO Hiking Society, and many other local artists.
For just a short time, the “small company” simply called “EBI Engineering and Construction” (from Manny’s real name – Emmanuel Barrion Inumerable) soon earned its reputation as the “pioneer” of stage rigging in Manila. The combination of professionalism and creativity soon resulted to more projects from the government and the entertainment industry. By 1988, the growing company has been renamed to be known as STAGE RIGGERS, INC.
With benchmark projects such as Earth, Wind, and Fire and Stevie Wonder concerts during the same year, STAGE RIGGERS, INC. established itself as the biggest name in the Philippines’ stage rigging industry. In the 90’s, foreign gigs such as Bon Jovi, Metallica, Sting, Pearl Jam, Kenny G, Phil Collins, Michael Jackson, Miss Saigon, and so many others came to Manila and trusted STAGE RIGGERS, INC. to be their rigging contractor.
Today, STAGE RIGGERS, INC. has earned its name through fast, reliable, and safe services. It has become the TRUSTED stage rigging contractor in the Philippines.
As the only professional stage rigging company in the Philippines, STAGE RIGGERS, INC. has been constantly training people and improving itself to support the tough demands and creative innovations of the local entertainment and advertising industries.
