About Us

Pook Diemont & Ohl, Inc. (PDO), founded in 1982 by Barbara Pook, Tony Diemont and Ted Ohl, is the foremost stage rigging equipment contractor in the industry. Coordination is the key to a successfully built facility and PDO works closely with the project architects and consultants to integrate building systems and provide highly effective performance venues. PDO’s contribution helps ensure the timely and economical delivery of the each project.

Well known for our thorough attention to detail, aggressive stance on coordinating our work with general construction trades, and practical knowledge of technical theatre systems, our growth has been a careful and inevitable progression from a technically specialized proprietary group to a fully developed niche market based corporation.

Our well-developed alliances with major manufacturers combined with our own fabrication and assembly plant provide us with the freedom of choice and flexibility to maintain our important client orientation while keeping current with our industry's progressive technological advances. We carefully detail the rigging to provide the optimum production environment. Once construction is underway our proactive project managers and on-site personnel coordinate our work with all related building trades.
