As illusionists abhor giving away "tricks of the trade,"
so lighting and staging engineers shy away from sharing their
magic publicly. Techniques are so precious.
Holzmueller is different. We're in the business of uncovering
that magic to help you present professionally with the best designs,
service, and equipment in the industry.
Before there was Hollywood, there was Holzmueller. We're the oldest
and most experienced theatrical lighting company on the West Coast.
From our beginnings assisting magicians to cast a spell, we've
lit the big ones: the Panama-Pacific Exposition, the dedication
of the Golden Gate Bridge, the World's Fair at Treasure Island,
the founding of the United Nations and the California Centennial
In addition we've draped, elevated, platformed, propertied and
designed and built scenery for theatres, conventions, television
studios, trade shows, presidential campaigns as well as church
socials, company parties, neighborhood theatres, business meetings,
exhibits, scholastic events, birthdays, and myriad celebrations.
A small portion of our expertise can be found on this website.
A larger portion is available at the end of your telephone, computer,
or over a cup of coffee. Please call us. We're delighted to help
you ignite your idea, big or small, into a magical event.
