When you rent from VLS, you are getting more than just equipment.

As the largest entertainment lighting inventory in the Midwest, our well-maintained gear includes the latest and most advanced in lighting fixtures, rigging, control consoles, power distribution, atmospheric and special effects.

Our degreed and certified technicians routinely inspect and test our inventory, and we regularly use the products that we offer. Understanding the unique needs of this industry and the importance of opening night, we offer after-hours phone support, to ensure that a knowledgeable team member is close at hand, when your event or show is happening.

Not just for rental, VLS also offers production services, repair of your current fixtures or systems, training, stage rigging and curtains, stage safety inspections, product sales and systems integration. Browse our site, or contact us for more details.


Here at VLS, we understand that each client's needs are different and require a personalized approach to each production. We won't force-fit you into a prepackaged selection of equipment or services.

No matter how big or small your production, there are basic services that every customer of VLS can expect us to deliver. We call this, The VLS Promise, and it's our Accountability Commitment to you:
