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.

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.

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 Expositions.
