By 1978, the company had begun touring. Reed remained on the road as lighting designer and director until 1990, when he decided to stop touring and stay home to run the business. Although live entertainment an important part of Stage Tech, Inc., Reed’s decision to expand into a different market segments (Corporate Theatre, Tradeshows, and Special Events) led to major growth in the following years.
