MLR launch the Orn

News, Sport, Trade News / 19th September 2018

MLR, the international sports supplementary lighting business, has launched a new lighting rig specifically designed for golf courses – the first of its kind in the sports turf industry.

The ‘Orn’ will be unveiled at STRI’s Research Day on Wednesday 19th September in Bingley, West Yorkshire.

MLR has provided mobile lighting solutions to sports arenas since 1998 and has now utilised innovative technologies to develop the ‘Orn’ rig to provide mobile lighting solutions for problematic greens and fairways.

Working with its global distributor, Bernhard and Company, the ‘Orn’ joins MLR’s range of supplementary lighting rigs that service a multitude of sports stadiums.

The Orn is compact and easy to move around the course to spot treat problem areas. It can be disassembled in less than 30 minutes, so it’s easy to store when not in use.

MLR general manager, Hermann Sather, said: “MLR is proud to launch the world’s first supplementary lighting rig designed specifically for golf. There’s a great deal of pressure on greenkeepers to produce quality surfaces all year round, and the Orn can be a crucial weapon in that battle.

“This is our first venture into the golf market, but it won’t be our last. Expect more exciting developments in the near future!”

Steve Nixon, Director for Bernhard and Company, said: “This is an exciting time for Bernhard Company. By combining our strong experience and knowledge of the golf market with MLR technical expertise, we are bringing a unique product that will revolutionise the way turf professionals manage difficult growth areas around their golf course.”

STRI Group is the agronomic partner of MLR Sports.
